The KGL Foundation, known for its philanthropic activities and commitment to community development, has once again stepped forward to extend its support to those in need. Ramadan, the holy month of fasting and reflection for Muslims, is a time of giving and sharing with those who are less fortunate.

In this spirit of compassion, the KGL Foundation has joined hands with the Road 2 Jannah Foundation to provide essential food items to various institutions and communities in Ghana.

The beneficiaries of this initiative include The National Chief Imam, who leads the Muslim community in Ghana and plays a significant role in promoting peace and unity among all religious groups in the country. The Akropong School for the Blind, a renowned institution dedicated to the education and well-being of visually impaired students, will also receive support from the KGL Foundation and the Road 2 Jannah Foundation.

In addition, the Fadama community, known for its vibrant Muslim population, will benefit from this donation, along with the Weija Leprosarium, a facility that provides care and support to individuals affected by leprosy.

The Abossey Okai Zongo, a predominantly Muslim community known for its rich cultural heritage, will also receive assistance from the KGL Foundation and the Road 2 Jannah Foundation. Lastly, the Rahma Orphanage Home, a charitable organization that provides shelter and care to orphaned and vulnerable children, will also benefit from this generous donation.

Speaking about this initiative, Mr. Elliot Dadey, CEO of KGL Foundation, expressed his gratitude to the Road 2 Jannah Foundation for their partnership in this endeavor. He emphasized the importance of giving back to the community, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, and reiterated the KGL Foundation’s commitment to supporting those in need.

Nigerian actor calls out Ghanaian ‘Tik Toker’ for ‘stealing’ photoshoot concept

TV Host and actor, Uti Nwachukwu has reacted to Ghanaian Tiktoker, Wesley Kesse’s remake of his 40th viral birthday photoshoot concept.

He made this known on his Instagram page earlier today where he called out the Tiktoker, stating that though he finds it funny considering it wasn’t his sweat to create the concept, his photographer who came up with the concept and gifted him the idea for his 40th was livid.

While Uti considers it normal for people to draw out inspiration from other people’s work, the actor stated that the Ghanaian Tiktoker and his team should have reached out to his creative team, or simply acknowledged the true creator of the concept.

He went ahead to state that better needs to be done in the creative space, stating that first before others can respect us, we need to respect ourselves.

Uti concluded his rage with making mockery of Wesley’s photoshoot, revealing it isn’t as neat and good as his— making jest of the Ghana’s way of speaking ‘come’, Uti wrote ‘kam’

Kennedy Agyapong donates to Muslims towards Eid-ul Adha

The Member of Parliament Parliament(M.P.) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has reiterated his call on Muslims to be steadfast, and generous and continue to pray for the peace of the country.

He made the call when he donated food items encompassing 1,500 bags of rice, 6,000 bottles of oil, and cash to Moslems in various regions across the country.

Kennedy Agyapong Jnr., son of Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, who presented the items on behalf of his father, appealed to them to continue praying for Ghana.

Hon. Agyapong has been engaged with an equally important national assignment and was unable to join the Moslems for the celebration this year.

For the past 15 years, the Assin Central M.P. has been celebrating Eid- ul Adha with Muslims after their month-long Ramadan fast at various zongo communities across the country.

In a message delivered on his behalf, the straight-talking legislator Ken, admonished the youth groups with the Islamic communities to eschew any act that may lead to confrontation with one another. He noted that, in some cases, unscrupulous persons take advantage of the celebration and tap into the exuberant energy of some zongo youth to foment troubles. This helps he said retards progress and should be discouraged.

Ken Ofori-Atta has been borrowing as if there were no tomorrow

Ghana’s unending economic turmoil is majorly attributable to the borrowing spree

embarked on by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, and his team when Nana Akufo-Addo assumed power in 2017 until date.

This Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led government is known to have increased Ghana’s public debt stock from 122 billion GHS in 2016 to now about 600 billion GHS and still counting. This has led to the current debt-to-GDP being at about 98.7% within this relatively short time.

Looking at the external debt figures, this government has accumulated 382.7 billion GHS in the Eurobond market from 2018 to November 2022, leading to a junk downgrade of our economy by global rating agencies.

Ghana’s economy is not only saddled with astronomical external debt stock but also accumulated so much domestic debt. The Domestic Debt Exchange Programme (DDEP) is still fresh in our minds. A number of statutory funds such as the GETFUND, ESLA, etc. have also been collateralized for several years. This is indeed worrying!

In the fourth Republic, this government is an OUTLIER in terms of the quantum of public debt incurred as compared to the Rawlings, Kuffour, Atta-Mills, and Mahama regimes.

Apart from liabilities in terms of debts, the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led regime has enjoyed tremendous revenue inflows from the existing Oil Fields and many other taxes including the three new taxes passed and signed into Law by the President.

Unlike the erstwhile NDC government, the governing NPP government cannot boast of hugely durable and impactful capital investments made in the country except to point to their struggling flagship projects such as free SHS, 1D1F, etc., which have been poorly implemented and now plagued with serious challenges.

After so much borrowing, some questions to be asked are:

What has the borrowed money been used for?

How will Ghana repay these loans taken in the few years to come after this regime?

Is this the proud nation that Ken Ofori-Atta wants Ghanaians to believe in?

If the IMF deal approval is going to take two more years, will Ken Ofori-Atta continue to be the Finance Minister until 2024?

As the idiom goes ‘Make hay while the sun shines’. This government should have known that too much borrowing for consumption and reckless spending on the nation’s meager resources was unsustainable, and prepared for hard days ahead.

However, this appeared not to be the case. The actions of this government are directly impoverishing Ghanaians and burdening the future generation with colossal debt repayment.

Ghana is now stuck in the middle of the sea and on its knees begging the Parish Club, and other bilateral Creditors for rescue. Ken Ofori-Atta has indeed borrowed Ghana into a ditch! In fact, Ghana beyond aid is now Ghana begging for Aid.
