Published

on

Gideon Ansong, who is popularly known and preferably responds to ‘Gideon Trust’, is a graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Gideon, 24, has established a lifelong dream of establishing a food business (Banku and Tilapia).

 

His foodservice is popularly known on the KNUST Campus as ‘The Tilapia Guy’.

He graduated from KNUST with a degree in Communication Design and specialized in Multimedia in the year 2015.

Aside his interest in creating a successful food business, he has great media skills (film making, video editing, photography, graphic designing, media production, etc.

He is a purpose-driven young man who inspires others with what he does and is very humble. In light of his willingness to help others, he has set up an NGO that is geared towards helping brilliant but financially less endowed children in our public basic schools.

At the age of 6, he took an interest in food art. He picked up from his mother and his grandmother as he was compelled to do so in their absence.

He lived with his grandmother as a kid until the age of 14 when he moved in with his mother.

“My mother used to run a restaurant so I used to help around, which equipped me with better cooking skills, and that is when my interest in cooking remerged,” he said.

As part of his skills, he is enriched in video editing, filmmaking, and has advanced experience in radio hosting.

Not only does he have a passion for food, but he has also envisioned making documentaries of his own.

One of his missions is to make ‘The Tilapia Guy’ a really notable eatery in the whole of Ghana.

Before he decided to take on this journey, he took time to know his strengths and weaknesses and decided to start slowly with this business, which he expects to boost.

He officially opened his ‘Banku and Tilapia’ business in mid-January 2021

Chaos: Agbogbloshie scrap dealers fires shots at police over de-congestion exercise – ghanapublisher.com

Published

The scrap dealers at Agbogbloshie in Accra are resisting the decongestion exercise by the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council.

The scrap dealers and onion traders at Agbogbloshie are being relocated to Adjen Kotoku to help free the congestion in the central business district of Accra as part of the agenda “Make Accra work again” initiated by the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey.

Graphic Online’s reporter Joshua Bediako Koomson who is with the team undertaking the exercise reports that the de-congestion exercise started Thursday morning was moving smoothly until the team arrived at the scrap dealers section.

The dealers set used vehicle tyres ablaze in protest against their removal from the spot.

According to our reporter Joshua Bediako, “They are firing shots and throwing stones at the security personnel.”

“They also started burning tyres”, he added.

He said the exercise aimed at removing onion traders and scrap dealers to Adjen Kotoku was peaceful until they reached the scrapyard.

The scrap dealers argued that they were not served any notice to vacate the place.

“So the military had to intervene by firing warning shots to disperse them,” he added.

Calm down and support Prez. Akkufo Addo – Nana B to Ejura Youth – ghanapublisher.com

NPP YOUTH WING APPEALS TO EJURA YOUTH TO CALM DOWN, SUPPORTS PREZ AKUFO-ADDO’s DIRECTIVE FOR PUBLIC INQUIRY

The National Youth wing of the New Patriotic Party has learned with profound concern reports of the alleged murder of Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka and the unfortunate death of two protesters in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

At the outset, we condemn in no uncertain terms the alleged mob attack that led to the untimely death of Kaaka and also the use of disproportionate force by the joint security force against the rampaging youth in Ejura.

We sincerely sympathize with the families of the deceased and pray that the good Lord comfort and strengthen them in the difficult times they find themselves.

As agonizing and regrettable as the death of these three individuals are, the Youth wing, in all humility, appeals to the youth in Ejura to calm down and tread a path that engenders peace, love and unity to honor the memories of the dead.

As youth we hold the key to the future of our great nation and we cannot jeopardize this great task by resorting to instant retaliation and violence which threatens the peaceful coexistence in our country.

We welcome and support the directive from H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to the Minister of Interior, Hon. Ambrose Dery, MP, to immediately conduct Public Inquiry into the circumstances that led to the unfortunate occurrences on Tuesday, 29th June, 2021.

Again, we add on to the numerous calls on the Police to expedite investigations into the unfortunate death of Kaaka and serve justice to him and the bereaved family by bringing the perpetrators to book.

That said, It is deeply worrying that the opposition NDC seeks to use these very unfortunate and tragic occurrences as an opportunity to undermine the peace and progress we have collectively attained in almost 30 years of our democracy, admired and spoken about in the Sub-Region.

As citizens of Ghana and as Youth, it is our duty to denounce and condemn such statements which rather weakens our strength as a nation in fighting atrocious acts.

We must take up the call for social justice in an appropriate manner which ensures that all are protected and we contribute in the collective effort to support the peace process.

Once again, we solemnly commiserate with the families, friends and loved ones of the deceased and wish the injured a speedy recovery.

Thank you
…Signed…

Henry Nana Boakye
(National Youth Organizer, NPP)
