Hammer Suggests That Gov’t Should Sell ECG



Music producer and the brain behind The Last 2 Music Group, Hammer has proposed that the Electricity Company of Ghana should be sold to a private company to operate.

The legendary beatmaker on his Facebook wall on Friday afternoon wrote that private companies are operated well than those owned by the state.

Edward Nana Poku Osei said Ghana Telecom before its acquisition was performing badly but it became better when it was sold to Vodafone. He agreed that Ghanaians complain about selling public companies but agreed that this will be best for ECG.

Hammer explained:

“Wait a min.. Let’s analyse this.

“We’re all aware our problem as a nation is bad management and maintenance of large corporations with state interests.

“National theatre, conference centre, gbc etc are all deteriorating due to mismanagement and bad maintenance yet when u mention sale of such broken entities, there’s always an uproar as to why it’s being sold and bla bla bla…

“I’ll tell u why, it’s cos we can’t handle them SIMPLE.

“ECG is not any different if u ask me. Cos the best thing tht ever happened to ghana telecom was the Vodafone acquisition. We have seen this happen too many times to worry about the state losing control of such institutions cos frankly the human resource mindset is to blame not the system of operations in these institutions.

“ECG MUST BE SOLD whether we like it or not.

“It’s better for the nation to enjoy reliable and efficient power supply than take pride in government control of a broken down company. How many government interest companies are in ghanas club 100. I bet there’s none.

“Politician Shld stop bickering about which party sold it and who got the kickbacks and all tht fuss and focus on the benefits to the nation if it’s sold and we have stable power. ?#?SELLECG?”

10 most powerful women in Ghana today



Power comes with great responsibility and with a country like Ghana, this forms of responsibility is most unique and special especially when you are a woman.

With a new government in place and also the change in political power and other developments in the nation, we bring you the top ten all powerful women in Ghana today.

1. Sophia Akufo

Being the second female chief justice in Ghana, Madam Akufo comes up as the most powerful woman and legal brain in Ghana today as she heads the Supreme Court of Ghana thus ensuring that justice is respected in the country.

2. Charlotte Osei 

She was one of the most powerful women in Ghana on YEN’s list in 2016 and still is! Madam Charlotte Osei, being the electoral commissioner has overseen one of Ghana’s knife-edged elections which saw Nana Addo Danquah-Akufo-Addo emerge as president of the 4th republic.

3. Rebecca Akufo-Addo

There’s no mention of Ghana’s powerful women without mentioning the name of the first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo. She indeed is the power behind the strength of president Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo.

4. Samira Bawumia 

Forget the fact that she is the second lady in Ghana as her vicarious campaign messages one way or the other saw the NPP got elected into power. Samira Bawumia knows Ghanaians best and reaches out to them with words.

5. Gloria Akufo 

Being the attorney general and legal adviser to the president, Madam Gloria Akufo comes along as the best legal brain which prosecutes and processes major cases against government and the state. Without her, Ghana would be ripped by several legal battles. She has power, real power.

6. Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey 

You can’t mention powerful women in Ghana without mentioning the name of the foreign affairs minister. This special minister is the representative of government the world over who makes sure that the foreign policy of Ghana is strictly adhered to.

7. Adwoa Sarfo 

Graced with beauty in such a rigorous political atmosphere as Ghana, 35 year-old Adjoa Sarfo is definitely one of the most powerful women in Ghana today considering the fact that she is the only female deputy majority leader in Ghana’s political history.

8. Akumaa Mama Zimbi 

You might wonder why we included the name of the sex goddess in Ghana but indeed most of Ghana’s youthful population will never survive with he sexual therapy of this media goddess. With her ‘Odo Ahomaso’ show which attracts millions of viewers countrywide, there is no doubt in our mind that she is an authority in her own right.

9. Barbara Mahama 

Ghana came to a standstill when the mob of Major Mahama was announced. Though we still share in the pain of his killing, one person who stood out so strong and powerful is widow Barbara Mahama. Following her gruesome experience, there is no doubt that her words now could move mountains and even shift minds.

10. Ursula Owusu 

She is the communications minister in Ghana and what this means is that she has control over what we hear and see and how we hear them. She regulates the media landscape and makes sure that we are never shortchanged or cheated.
