Why Okoe-Boye lost his seat – Ben Ephson explains

Member of Parliament for the Ledzokuku constituency, Bernard Okoe-Boye, may have contributed to his own woes by indirectly, instigating the arrests of some of his constituents over indiscipline, as far as observation of coronavirus protocols are concerned.

The MP who is also Deputy Minister of Health, lost his seat after the parliamentary polls on December 7, to his opponent from the NDC’s camp, Benjamin Ayiku Nartey who polled some 55938 votes as against his 54072 in that area.

Speaking to Daniel Oduro on GhanaWeb’s Election Desk, Mr. Ephson who had earlier projected possibilities of a win for Mr. Okoe-Boye, suggested, that some past decisions which were very pertinent and necessary, but affected his constituents, may have accounted for the dynamics as far as his loss is concerned.

Narrating events as they happened in the past, he said,

“Okoe-Boye until the Homowo was doing very well. Teshie and the others lacked infrastructure and he had done well, but the last straw that broke the camel’s back was during the Homowo, when the Teshie people do the Lapka (dancing and drumming from Teshie to Labadi) and he made the police stop them because as Deputy Minister of Health giving COVID-19 protocols, the police arrested some of them and it was the NDC candidate who went to bail them so that was something very tricky.”

He however agrees that he had to play his role as minister at the time also to ensure the right thing was done and avoidance of such for his own benefit, could have been sacrilegious.

Commenting on trends from the past however, he said, “For the past 5, 6 elections, Ledzokuku has never voted for the same person twice.”

PLEASE HELP! The Shocking Thing I Saw In My Father’s Wardrobe (Should I Be Worried?)

Hello guys, the background behind this story is lengthy so to spare you the trouble I’ll jump straight to the point.

My father although he has his flaws is a very religious, and I dare say principled man in some aspects.

He never misses church service. Went to bible school.

At one point he was even a house fellowship leader. He prays and fast often.

So on this day I was standing in the doorway to my dads room.

He wanted to send me on an errand ”I think”, so he opened his wardrobe to get the money.

Immediately he opened his Wardrobe I saw a BAT…yes BAT hanging upside down right there in his wardrobe.

In shock, I jumped and shouted

”daddy see bat see bat !!!”.

Guess what he did. He simply smiled and gently closed his wardrobe.

I have never been this confused. I saw a bat hanging upside down in his Wardrop and all he did was smile and gently closed the door.

I don’t know what to make of it. I have already concluded, there is no way on earth this is from God.

Up until this time I have never seen a bat up close in real-time.

The closest I’ve been was to watch them on television. Contemplate how scared and confused I am now.

I picked up an excuse and ran out of the house to go stay with my relative. It’s been a week since I left, and I’m still too scared to go back.

What do you folks make of this? How can a man who prays and fast and attends bible school have a BAT in his wardrobe? WTF !!

What Do You Think I Should Do?

It’s winter season and bathing seems like a task, doesn’t it? Well, how long can you go without showering? A day or two maximum? Turns out, you are nowhere close to this man who hasn’t bathed in over six decades.

Amou Haji is an 87-year-old man and he hasn’t taken a bath in 67 years. He resides in Dejgah which is a village in the Kermanshah province of Iran. He also looks like the Biblical Moses who fell down a chimney.

He is always covered in ash and dirt. He hasn’t taken a bath for nearly seven decades because he is scared of water. He is of the belief that if he will bathe, he will fall ill.

What is even more unusual is that his diet consists of rotten meat of dead animals, especially porcupines. He also enjoys smoking but it is not tobacco he prefers. He likes to smoke animal feces out of a rusty pipe.

According to Tehran Times, Haji decided to live an isolated life after he went through some emotional setbacks in his youth.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off enemies but to keep him warm during winters.

Human beings are complicated creatures.
