Female teachers exchange sex for food in rural communities - GNAT reveals

Madam Victoria Affram said the female teachers who are posted to the rural areas have to be in amorous relationships with some opinion leaders

First National Trustee of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has revealed that female teachers posted to rural communities to teach engage in sex for food.

This, according to GNAT has affected teaching in the communities.
Madam Victoria Affram speaking on Accra-based Adom FM said the female teachers who are posted to the rural areas have to be in amorous relationships with some opinion leaders and some village chiefs.She said, because government don’t pay newly posted teachers on time, the vulnerable female teacher have to go through this in the village whiles others who can’t cope with the situation do not go at all.
She noted: "Some of these opinion leaders lure them with gifts and subsequently impregnate them and force them to become second and third wives. These lustful opinion leaders come under the guise of lending some support but with the view of engaging in sex with the teachers. Some of them get pregnant for the husbands of others leading to internal rifts between them and the original wives."

Madam Victoria Affram called on government to ensure prompt payment of salaries to newly posted teachers in rural Ghana to curb the situation.

"Some of these female teachers have no places to sleep…it is that bad that some even sleep on mats. In the end the teachers who are supposed to be role models turn out to do the reverse of what they are supposed to advise the teachers against.

"They are not given T and T and when they go to the village, they are accommodated by opinion leaders in the community who later make love proposals to them…many become pregnant later, are forced to become the 2nd and 3rd wives of the opinion leaders and lose their respect as role models for the young girls," she added.

I won’t feature Shatta Wale – Rose Adjei

2:27 AM 0

Gospel artiste, Rose Adjei, has said she will not invite any hip life artiste, including self-proclaimed Dancehall King, Shatta Wale, for any collaboration on her songs.

“What is he going to sing for me? It will be difficult for me to feature Shatta Wale,” she told Bismark Boachie (DJ Premier), host of Entertainment Capital, on Accra100.5FM in an interview.

The Ghanaian music industry has seen a few collaborations between gospel musicians and Hiplife artiste like Lady Prempeh (Gospel) and Asem (Hiplife).

Responding to whether she would like to do such a collaboration, Rose Adjei said she would not invite any secular musician but would accept an invitation from them to sing on their songs if only they will sing according to her lyrics and style.

“If he [Shatta Wale] invites me to feature on his song, I will honour the invite but I won’t give him a call to feature him on my song. I won’t,” she said adding that, “this is not to say I regard them [Hiplife artistes and Dancehall artistes] as worldly people. I chose to sing gospel and they have chosen their own genre of music.”

Rose Adjei further noted that although Hiplife artistes are friendlier than Gospel musicians, as a matter of principle, she will not invite any of them for collaboration.

“Hiplife musicians are one of the most loveliest and friendly people even more than Gospel musicians. You can get closer to them. They are open so I don’t have a problem with them but the reason why I said I won’t invite Shatta Wale is because he has his genre of music and I have mine. I did a lot of collaboration with other Gospel artistes who I feel are doing exactly what I’m doing. But if any Hiplife artistes want to collaborate with me, then it means he/she will sing it according to my style and my lyrics,” she stressed.

Rose Adjei has songs like “Judgement Day”, “Jesus Lives”, “M’ayeyie”, “Nsre Hey Hey”, “Lift Him High”, “Thank You Lord”, “Aseda” and “M’ayeyie” on her latest album titled “Judgment Day”.

5:59 AM 0

The project dubbed, “Operation Street to Better Life” comes on the back of the increasing number of children who have abandoned the classrooms to make a living on the streets.

The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection will from September 2017 embark on a project aimed at getting children of school going age off the street.

The project dubbed, “Operation Street to Better Life” comes on the back of the increasing number of children who have abandoned the classrooms to make a living on the streets.
Speaking on the project, the sector minister, Madam Afisa Djaba said: “Come September, at least the children of school going age must be off the street, it is not only Ministry which is doing this, we are coordinating but the ownership must come from all of us including the parents”.

According to her, the increasing number of children on the streets shows that the extended family values and governance systems which should protect such children have weakened.
“As a Ministry, we are focusing on the issue today because of the need to stop this harmful and hazardous practice that infringes on the right of the child to education, to play and to be protected from physical, mental and psychological abuse.”

She noted that because her Ministry understood that dignity and full potential of children may be threatened, “we have developed a comprehensive document which will be the basis for the implementation of the programme.”
Madam Djaba added that the project would work under short, medium and long term strategies and would link the extremely poor to pro-poor interventions like LEAP, the LEAP 1000 and the planting for food and jobs programmes of the government.

“We will conduct a mapping exercise to collect data on street children in identified areas where streetism is a major concern, once identified, our teams will conduct several operations to systematically rescue them.
“We will have to keep on with the interaction and argument that Ghana, 60 years on we cannot afford to have people living on the streets, begging and selling,” she said.

“I have not worked with a lot of people. I would want to work with Stonebwoy. He is my senior in high grade. He went with the same school with me so I think it’s best to feature him…,” he said.

Successful people, he said are persons who work in a smart manner and this principle, he added has been guiding him.

He, therefore, urged every Tom, Dick and Harry artistes seeking to break through the entertainment industry to passionately keep up with their creative works in order to attain the limelight.

When you do something and people like it, you keep on keeping on. That is how you win. If I didn’t win the hip life song of the year I would have been worried. Hip life is a gift…,” he said.

Vice President Of Ghana "Bawumia" Had predicted The collapse of UT, Capital Banks and 6 others

8:47 AM 0

The Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will forever remain in the minds of many Ghanaians who regard him as an astute economist, especially as several of his predictions have come to pass.

On Monday, the Bank of Ghana announced the complete takeover of UT Bank Limited and Capital Bank Limited by the GCB Bank Limited after revoking the licences of the two commercial banks.

The central bank attributed its actions to the severe impairment of the capital of the two banks.

But the warning signs were long written on the walls by then Vice-Presidential candidate of the NPP, Dr. Bawumia.

In one of his lectures dubbed: ‘State of the Ghanaian Economy: A Foundation of Concrete or Straw?” in the heat to the 2016 general elections, Dr. Bawumia predicted that quite a number of commercial banks were on the verge of collapsing due to fragility in the Ghanaian economy.

He went further to state that significant rise in bad loans has had a rippling effect on the banking sector and that if the banks were asked to provide fully for all bad loans captured in the books, quite a number of them would not survive.

Although he did not mention names, he said “Eight banks were identified to exhibit significant weaknesses, with capital adequacy ratios below 10% (Some below 5%) and nearing collapse.

Below is the view of Dr. Bawumia, then Vice-Presidential candidate of the NPP as captured in his “State of the Ghanaian Economy: A Foundation of Concrete or Straw?” which was delivered at the National Theatre on Monday, September 12, 2016.


Mr. Chairman, as Ghana’s economy has declined under John Mahama’s NDC government, so has the financial sector become increasingly fragile and vulnerable. Specifically:

Bad loans in the banking sector have risen significantly. Economic and Financial data from the Central Bank, show that non-performing loans have risen sharply from 11.2% in May 2015 to a critically high 19.3% in May 2016. For example, the level of impaired loans in one of the largest Commercial banks, have quadrupled and the situation is becoming widespread in the banking sector. Available information shows that due to non-payment of these loans, the banks have declared GH¢2.4 billion of the outstanding stock of loans as a complete loss and are making 27 provisions against profits. Certainly, these are resources that could be channeled to create more industries in our communities.

The Asset Quality Review of Banks conducted in 2015 shows significant vulnerability of banks to current economic conditions, and that if the affected banks were to provision fully for all bad loans, a significant number of them would collapse. Eight (8) banks were identified to exhibit significant weaknesses, with capital adequacy ratios below 10% (some below 5%) and nearing collapse.”
