Kan Dapaah in a video with girlfriend is not corruption, Let him be – GISAC Directer, Samuel Nana Appiah Owusu – ghanapublisher.com

Published

A video of Ghana’s National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah leaked on social media this morning showing him in a sweet-talk with a woman who is not his wife.

The footage which is a video call recorded by the the said lady details a love-struck Kan Dapaah who helplessly takes orders from the lady whose face is not captured in the conversation.

The 66-year-old National Security boss who appeared to be in Europe on assignment was clad in a dark-blue dotted pajamas which he flaunted upon request by the unidentified lady.

Some Ghanians have laughed it off while others are calling for his resignation, a Controversial musician now turned politician, Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus, has added his voice to those who wants the minister to resign with immediate effect.

The Executive Director of Global Intelligence and Security Analysis Center (GISAC), Mr. Samuel Nana Appiah Owusu has detailed below why the minister has indeed done nothing wrong, morally, legally, and by conditions of his office and therefore there’s no need to call for his resignation.

Hon Albert Kan Dapaah did not break any law or code of conduct.
Many people have called to ask my express opinion and professional
analysis of the video circulating on social media involving the Hon Minister for national security, Mr Albert Kan Dapaah.

To be able to respond professionally and intelligently I needed to watch and study and do critical analysis of the content of the said video.

My first response is that the management of our national security cyber system have woefully failed us as a country in this regard. I believe that this video got circulated deliberately for an ill motive to be achieved therefore the handlers of the cyber space should have been proactive in disallowing the circulation of the video.

After careful study and analysis of the video I don’t think the Hon Minister has done anything in contravention of the laws of Ghana or against his code of conduct in office.

First of all, the action in the video is seemingly done and in every 24 hours men and women display affection and love among themselves, these actions are done in so many ways,.

The Hon Minister having a video chat with his girlfriend has not engaged in corruption by that act, he has not breach any code of conduct that forbid him from having a girlfriend. In the said video there is no anywhere he divulged any national security sensitive information, neither did he disclose any classified information to the girl in the chat.

Again the video does not suggest the least that the minister was using his office to solicit sexual favors from the woman. There is no where in the video that suggest again that the minister promised any favors for the woman by the authority of his position.

Ghana does not have any law that prevent appointees from having legitimate legally mature women as second wives. So what is his crime for chatting with his girlfriend and showing her how he is dressed.

As a country I am of the strongest believe that we should strengthen our cyber security system to enable us protect our officials from blackmailing and also to boost the confidence of investors. It is regrettable that such video got it way into the social media platform and other mode of circulation.

I am of the opinion that such act of leaking private legal video chat for ill motive purposes must be treated as criminal and should be stiffly punished by the relevant laws of the country. Such act can happen to anyone and must not be encouraged in the least proposition.

Assuming this has happened to the first and second gentlemen of the land and it was allowed in circulation for mischievous purposes, it could only expose how weak and unsafe our cyber security system is in the country.

Those calling for the resignation or removal from office of the minister, should rather condemn the act of leaking a harmless love chat between two adults for the purpose of blackmailing.

Mr Albert Kan Dapaah has indeed done nothing wrong, morally, legally, and by conditions of his office. He was in a simple video chat with his girlfriend, in there he did not disclose any information, or any security protocol that seems to suggest a breach of security of the country to his girlfriend, and I still want to emphasize that no law in Ghana forbid a national security minister from having a second wife or a girlfriend.

The call for his removal from office is completely a misplaced one. Instead the person who sort to denigrate the good reputation of the minister must be arrested and punished for breach of privacy.

Signed.
Samuel Nana Appiah Owusu,
Executive Director,

I wish you well, Kuffour to Musah Superior on his General Secretary bid – ghanapublisher.com

Published

on

The Former President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Agyekum Kuffour has wished Hon. Iddrisu Musah affectionately called Musah Superior well on his bid to become the next National General Secretary of the ruling party, New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The former Tamale Mayor who is currently the Deputy C.E.O of Ghana Forestry Commission paid a courtesy call on the former president at his Peduase Residence to officially inform him about his bid to contest for the NPP’s National General Secretary Position in the upcoming elections.

Musah Superior explained and detailed to the Ex- President the nature of his campaign themed “The Peoples’s Campaign”.

Ex – President Kuffour was delighted and fascinated about the nature and content of the Peoples’s Campaign.

He wished him well and blessed him.

Below are the 10 points plan of the Peoples’s campaign.

1. As GS, l will operate meaningfully at the Party HQ. The Party will no longer be managed from the private offices and homes of some persons. I will lead in running an active, professional and hugely political HQ. I will not run the Party in absentia.

2. I will mange the Party from bottom to top. This means l will pay serious attention to the local structures of the party. I believe that if we pay attention to the polling stations and resource the Constituency Executives, we will enhance our strength.

3. I will formulate and publish a six monthly ACTIVITY PLAN. This means that l will be busy in the country side on a formal work schedule. Regional and Constituency ACTIVITY PLAN will fit into the plan of the HQ.

4. I will ensure that officers, communicators, etc are REWARDED. It is absurd that we do not have an award scheme for people who have worked so hard for our victory. I ll ensure that we add value to our officers and volunteers. This is not rocket science!

5. Establish a WORKING welfare scheme for all officers of the Party.

6. Revive the demotivated Communications Directorate of the Party. All communicators at all levels must have a reason to continue to advocate for the Party. I ll put a plan in place to “look” after them. I will also support the Directorate to recruit brilliant communicators from the Regions and constituencies and offer them opportunities to feature on programmes “reserved” for certain class of persons. We must find innoviative ways of making our communication effective, convincing and pointful. This mean we must consult widely and use the wealthy brains of the Party people.

7. I will lead in constantly articulating the excellent work the NPP government is doing. We must articulate loudly our achievements and challenge any propaganda intended to undermine out grear efforts. Winning elections 2024 will depend largely on the achievements of our government.

8. As GS, l will ensure that ALL internal elections are free, fair, transparent and credible. ALL parliamentary primaries shall be OPENED to all. No needless disqualifications.

9. Our Party is run by Committees. (Steering Committee, National Executive Committee, National Council and the National Delegates Conference/Congress). As GS, l will become the most functional officer of the Party and shall work to the directions of the Committees.

10. Discipline brings stability and meaning into a person or institution. It teaches us to be responsible and respectful.The observance of well-defined rules in any organisation is critically important for the growth and development of the organisation. Discipline promotes good human behavior, stronger and focussed regime. We need to instil this important virtue into our Party. l will supervise a disciplined Party.
