I also deserve a second term – President Mahama

Published

on

President John Dramani Mahama has stated that his administration has over the last four years performed tremendously well to deserve another chance in the 2016 polls.

He said the 1992 Constitution makes room for every President to enjoy a second term after serving the first four years in government and appealed to the electorate to give him the opportunity to complete all the projects he had initiated in the first term of his administration.

“Presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum were given second chances to complete the development projects they started in their first terms and I think I have also performed well to deserve another term,” he said.

President Mahama was addressing a National Democratic Congress (NDC) party rally at Bimbilla, capital of Nanumba North as part of his four-day campaign tour of the Northern Region.

President Mahama also addressed similar rallies at Kumidi and Kpandai in the Kpandai District, Lungni, Nakpayili and Wulensi in the Nanumba South District and Chamba.

President Mahama explained that his administration had initiated numerous development projects throughout the country and therefore handing the governance of the country to another political party would truncate those strides.

“That is why I believe that I deserve another chance to complete all those projects throughout the country to help in the onward March of this country.”

He said it was untenable to suggest that he had already served his eight years when it was crystal clear that his service to Ghana was from 2009 – 2012 was the position of a Vice President.

President Mahama called on the opposition leaders who are calling for a change to continue to bid their time as Ghanaians are poised to return the NDC government into power on account of the development-oriented performance in the past four years.

Enumerating some of the development projects his administration had initiated in the last four years, President Mahama said 123 Community Day Senior High Schools are under construction throughout the country, while numerous health facilities have also been completed at various locations.

He said he had also initiated a number of water programmes to make potable water accessible throughout the country and called on the electorate to return NDC to power to provide more.

President Mahama said Ghana needs peace and security to blossom into a developed country and his administration would continue to provide all the necessary facilities that would ensure complete peace and unity in the days leading the December 7 polls and beyond.

Nayele Ametefe jailed 8 years

Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.

We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.

Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.

The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.

Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.

The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.

According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.

The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.

In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.

She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.

According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.

The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.

She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
