        "title": "ECG, GWCL proposed tariff increment will compound Ghana's economic crisis - TUC  - Ghana Business News",
        "body": "The Trades Union Congress (TUC) says the request by utility service providers in the country for increment in prices of electricity and water will compound the current hardship that Ghanaians are going through.\n\nThe Union said the proposals, ranging from 37 per cent to 334 per cent, \"have a great potential to turn the economic crisis into social and political crisis that will be more difficult to address.\"\n\nThe utilities explained that the rising prices and the depreciation of the Cedi had increased their cost of operations far above their revenues and needed to undertake critical investments and upgrade of their infrastructure with the proposed increment.\n\nHowever, the Union said, since the economy had not fully recovered from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic, with emerging challenges from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the upward review of tariff would compound the plight of households who were already suffering from the severe economic crisis.\n\nAs such, the Union, which is the largest umbrella body of workers in Ghana, had asked the sector regulator, the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC), not to grant the request of the utilities until the crisis was over.\n\nThe Union said: \"In our current economic and social situation, workers and Ghanaians will have very little levers to absorb such shocks. This is not the time for a major review of utility tariffs. Any astronomical increases in tariffs could trigger social upheavals.\"\n\n\"The major tariff review should, therefore, be postponed until the cost-of-living crisis is over,\" it added.\n\n\"Rather, what we need are measures that will reduce waste to the barest minimum and infuse efficiency in the operations of the utility companies that will help to sustain them over a long period of time,\" the Union noted in its submission to PURC.\n\nIt recommended that ECG increased efforts at collecting revenues, stopped illegal connections and closed the gap between its billing and electricity sales, while GWCL should also do more metering and stop charging flat rates.\n\nTUC said it was important for the Government to continue to support the utility companies to undertake some of the critical investments needed to ensure the stability of the electricity and water networks.\n\nIt also asked the Government to consider absorbing some of the losses of the utility companies that had come from the current levels of inflation and currency depreciation.\n\nThe Government should also ensure a comprehensive review of the 25-year take or pay contract of the Desalination Project, to make it fair to Ghana.\n\nThe contract has obliged GWCL to pay Befesa Company Limited $1.3 million every month whether the Company produces water or not.\n\nThe Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) is seeking an increase in water tariff of 334 per cent, while the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is asking for a 148 per cent increase in tariffs for 2022.\n\nThe Volta River Authority (VRA) has proposed a tariff increase of 37 per cent, Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCo), 113 percent, and Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo), 48 per cent increase in transmission charge.\n\nMeanwhile, PUCR has said that it would protect consumers of electricity and water against the infliction of high tariffs by not transferring losses incurred by the utilities to consumers to worsen their plight.\n\nDr Ishmael Ackah, Executive Secretary, PURC, gave the assurance, saying: \"We sit between the Utilities and the customers, and we want the customers to be happy and pay competitive prices.\"\n\nHe told the Ghana News Agency that the Board of the Commission would meet on Thursday, June 30 to consider the work done, and do further consultations before announcing the 2022 tariff on July 15.",

        "body": "Tax experts in the country have been asked to bring their expertise to bear on sustainable voluntary tax compliance among Ghanaian taxpayers.\n\nDr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Minister for Education, who made the call explained that there was the need for all Ghanaians and other sector players in the country to support the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and the State to achieve improved and sustainable revenue mobilization to support the nation's collective socio-economic development.\n\nDr Adutwum made the call in an address read for him by Dr Eric Nkansah, Director in charge of Tertiary Education at the 2022 Chartered Institute of Taxation Ghana graduation, orientation and induction ceremony in Accra.\n\nThe event saw 83 graduating after completing the Institute's qualifying examinations in February 2022 while 72 newly qualified chartered tax practitioners who have already completed the mandatory post-qualifying working experience were inducted into membership of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, Ghana.\n\nHe said, \"the Government has intensified efforts to transform the face of education right from the basic level through to tertiary, and in the last five years, it has vigorously implemented bold reforms and policies aimed at improving education standards and widening skills acquisition in Ghana.\"\n\nThe Minister stated that the collaboration and support from various stakeholders including the CITG to date played a crucial role in human capital development and to a large extent provided technical assistance on various policy issues and reforms within the taxation sector and had quickened achievements in the sector.\n\n\"With the world transitioning to a digital economy, and with digitalization at the forefront of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo-led government's transformation agenda, we need to intensify partnerships to step up efforts in offering digital skills training and capacity building for human talent across various sectors of the Ghanaian economy,\" he said.\n\nA speech read on behalf of Dr Anthony Oteng Gyasi, the Board Chairman, GRA ,commended the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, for his effort toward digitalizing the nation's economy.\n\nHe said the GRA had embarked on several policy initiatives to improve its processes and procedures to facilitate revenue mobilization.\n\nThe Board Chairman mentioned the introduction of the innovative Cashless policy which ensured that taxpayers pay taxes either through the banks or online as one of such initiatives which would not only create convenience for taxpayers but also positively affected efficiencies at the Authority.\n\nMr George Ohene-Kwatia, the President of the CITG, said, \"we take great pride in developing impactful professionals who care and are passionate about the impact they make in society wherever they are located\".\n\nMr Ohene-Kwatia indicated that the digitization of economies across the globe required laws and regulations to enhance effective tax administration and called for tax reforms to match the digitized economies.",

        "title": "DBG will mirror KfW's successful banking model to benefit SMEs - Country Director, KfW - Ghanaian Times",
        "body": "KfW, the German development bank, has reaffirmed that its partnership with the Development Bank Ghana (DBG), seeks to provide much-needed support to the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) sector and thereby promote the sustainable development of the Ghanaian economy based on a model similar to its own.\n\nSpecifically, this partnership has been built to enable DBG to provide longer-term financing for the private sector, particularly SMEs in the agribusiness, manufacturing, high-value services and ICT sectors.\n\nThrough this support, KfW, the development financing arm of the German Government, will aid SMEs to make productive investments in order to retain and create jobs for the youth in the country.\n\nCommenting on the partnership in a statement issued in Accra yesterday, the Country Director of the KfW Office in Accra, Arndt Wierheim said \"KfW is undertaking a financial co-operation on behalf of the German government and we think DBG as a national development bank in Ghana is perfectly suited to support SMEs.\"\n\n\"We are very happy to implement our model with our Ghanaian partners here in Ghana. History shows that over its 70 years of implementation, the KfW model has been very successful in building a solid bedrock of SMEs, which is necessary for every strong economy and that is what we are trying to do in Ghana. KfW is supporting DBG on a path to a more sustainable and dynamic socio-economic growth in Ghana which will lead to the creation of more jobs,\" he said.\n\n\"From that point of view, we hope with our support to DBG, we can grow and give more life to the Reform and Investment Partnership which the Governments of Ghana and Germany signed a couple of years ago, where DBG will be a very strong pillar. We hope that DBG will be a success as KfW has been successful over the last 70 years in Germany,\" he added.\n\nOn behalf of the German Government, KfW has contributed €46.5 million as a subordinated loan with favorable conditions. Additionally, a grant of €3 million for technical assistance is provided to DBG in support of SMEs.\n\nThe model KfW is supporting in Ghana is similar to the one it implements for its domestic business in Germany. Based on this model, KfW lends to DBG who will in-turn lend to Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) or commercial banks who will finally lend to SMEs.\n\nThe Federal Republic of Germany, through financial and technical cooperation, over the years has provided extensive support to the Government of Ghana. This has been in three critical areas. One area is energy. The second is governance and the third is sustainable economic development.\n\nMr. Wierheim explained that \"within that third pillar, we are trying to support access to finance in Ghana; to support and finance SMEs through the financial sector and DBG as a new focus for us in Ghana is trying to do that.\"\n\nKfW's support to DBG is, however, broad and not only in the areas of funding and technical assistance. Within KfW's support to DBG, there is an embedded governance structure mirrored on international best practices which is aimed at ensuring that the expected support to SMEs does not encounter any challenges or bottlenecks.\n\nThis is possible because KfW, together with other development partners such as the World Bank and the European Investment Bank (EIB), has been involved right from the beginning in contributing to the design of the governance structure of DBG.\n\nAccording to Arndt Wierheim, \"we have a very thorough monitoring and reporting system in place which we do for all our projects, but, specifically for DBG which is also very important to us. We have yearly progress missions to Ghana from our headquarters to see where the project is going. We expect several things and one thing is to have a sister organization in Ghana which works similar like KfW so we can work on the same level.\n\n\"We have a common purpose and we have a similar structure. For us it is not only important to have implemented the very ambitious policies and support mechanisms for SMEs. We need a partner like DBG so we grow together and support Ghana,\" he said.",

        "body": "Nigerian sprinter Blessing Okagbare has been handed an extra one-year ban for additional doping violations to add to her existing 10-year suspension.\n\nAs a result of Okagbare's additional ban, Nigeria has lost its potential qualification place in the women's 4x100m relay at July's World Championships in Oregon.\n\nSix days after she evaded sample collection - on 13 June 2021 - she competed in the relay event at Nigeria's Olympic trials, helping her team to qualify for the World Championships. However, all results involving Okagbare have now been disqualified.\n\n\"Over the years, we have repeatedly seen how one person's actions adversely affect team-mates who have trained hard and worked honestly for their results,\" AIU head Brett Clothier said in a statement.\n\n\"In this instance, Nigeria has lost an important qualification spot. Those are the rules and we will not compromise on integrity.\"\n\nOkagbare, the 2008 Olympic long jump silver medallist, was a medal contender for the women's 100m in Tokyo last year and won her heat in 11.05 seconds.",

        "body": "Earlier this month, when Sen. Bernie Sanders said he would not challenge President Joe Biden in 2024, Biden was so relieved he invited his former rival to dinner at the White House the next night.\n\nBiden has been eager for signs of loyalty -- and they have been few and far between. Facing intensifying skepticism about his capacity to run for reelection when he will be nearly 82, the president and his top aides have been stung by the questions about his plans, irritated at what they see as a lack of respect from their party and the press, and determined to tamp down suggestions that he is effectively a lame duck a year and a half into his administration.\n\nFILE Ñ Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who some wealthy donors hope will consider a third-party presidential bid, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, June 14, 2022. (Anna Rose Layden/The New York Times)\n\nThis account of Biden's preparation for reelection and his building frustration with his party's doubt is based on interviews with numerous people who talk regularly to the president. Most spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations. But several said the president and his inner circle were confounded by Democrats' discussions about a Plan B when the one person who has defeated Donald Trump has made clear he intends to run again.\n\nBiden has told advisers he sees a replay of the early days of his 2020 primary bid, when some Democrats dismissed him as too old or too moderate to win the nomination. He blames the same doubters for the current round of questioning.\n\nThose skeptics grew louder over the weekend, after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, when Biden restated his opposition to expanding the ranks of the high court, the left's preferred solution to the court's current conservative tilt. The remarks angered critics who argue that the president, who has never been comfortable elevating abortion rights and positions himself as a consensus builder, doesn't have the temperament for partisan combat.\n\n\"Too many people in our party look at the glass as half-empty as opposed to the glass as half-full,\" said former Rep. Cedric Richmond, whom Biden dispatched from the White House to shore up the Democratic National Committee. Accusing other Democrats of \"putting too much into these polling numbers,\" an allusion to Biden's standing below 40% in some surveys, Richmond said there was \"a wing in our party who wanted a different candidate and I'm sure they'd love to have their candidate back in the mix again.\"\n\nHowever, it's hardly just the president's progressive detractors who are nervous about soaring inflation, uneasy about Biden running again, and not convinced he even should.\n\nSen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who some wealthy donors are hoping will consider a third-party presidential bid, declined to say whether he would consider such a run or if he planned to back Biden. \"We're just trying to do our daily thing, brother,\" Manchin said. \"Trying to do what we got to do that's good for the country.\"\n\nOther interviews with Democratic lawmakers yield grave doubts about whether Biden ought to lead the party again with some concluding he should but only because there's no clearly viable alternative.\n\nAnita Dunn, center, a senior adviser who helped revive Joe Biden's primary campaign in 2020, with Ron Klain, the chief of staff, in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, May 13, 2021. The White House is trying to tamp down speculation about President Biden's plans to seek re-election in 2024, while aides say he is bristling at the persistent questions. (T.J. Kirkpatrick/The New York Times)\n\n\"I have been surprised at the number of people who are openly expressing concerns about 2024 and whether or not Biden should run,\" said Rep. Adam Smith of Washington, chair of the House Armed Services Committee, recounting a recent dinner of Democrats in the capital where several speculated about who could succeed the president.\n\nMore worrisome for Biden, some ambitious Democrats have found that calling for the president to retire is a sure way to win attention. Former Rep. Joe Cunningham of South Carolina, who's hoping to unseat Gov. Henry McMaster, 75, said the president should cede the nomination \"to a new generation of leadership,\" as he put it on CNN last week.\n\nIn some respects, Biden invited this moment. Running in the 2020 primary, the president presented himself as \"a bridge, not as anything else\" as he sought to rally skeptical Democrats to his candidacy. Consumed with ejecting Trump from office, the party's voters answered that call but thought little of the implications of having an octogenarian in the Oval Office four years on.\n\nNow, over half of Democrats say they don't want Biden to run again or aren't sure he should, according to recent surveys.\n\nBiden's top advisers reject the idea that an open primary would deliver Democrats a stronger standard-bearer. They fear his retirement would set off a sprint to the left. What's more, while Vice President Kamala Harris would most likely garner substantial support, she's unlikely to clear the field, leading to a messy race that could widen the party's divisions on issues of race, gender and ideology.\n\nBiden has told aides he is determined to run again, although he has also noted he will take his family's advice into account. Biden's advisers recognize the political risk of being perceived as a one-term president and are intent on signaling that he intends to run for reelection.\n\nThe president has made clear he wants a primary calendar that better reflects the party's racial diversity, all but assuring the demise of first-in-the-nation status for the Iowa, which was hostile to Biden in his last two presidential bids. Senior Democrats are considering moving up Michigan, a critical general election state where the president has a number of allies in labor and elected office.\n\nThe Democratic National Committee has been quietly preparing for the president's reelection by pouring money and staff into eight battleground states that happen to have important midterm elections, an effort that began in the spring of last year. Biden has also accelerated his fundraising, holding a pair of events for the committee in June that brought in $5 million, while also spending more time on Zoom sessions courting individual contributors.\n\nThe president has moved to consolidate his hold on the DNC, and not just by sending Richmond to the committee. Biden has also shifted both his social media assets and his lucrative fundraising list to the party, which has made the committee largely reliant on those channels for their contributions.\n\nEven more subtly, Biden has made personnel moves that indicate he's at least preparing to run, most notably summoning Anita Dunn, a longtime adviser, back to the White House from her public affairs firm. Dunn, who helped revive the president's moribund primary campaign in 2020; Jennifer O'Malley Dillon, Biden's top political aide; and senior adviser Mike Donilon are expected to help guide the reelection, although notably there has been no decision yet on who will formally manage the reelection outside the White House.\n\nFILE Ñ Gov. J.B. Pritzker of Illinois, who traveled to New Hampshire, an early voting state, but whose office assured the White House he had no plans to challenge President Joe Biden, in Chicago, May 7, 2022. (Jamie Kelter Davis/The New York Times)\n\nWhite House aides have noticed Gov. Gavin Newsom's repeated denunciations of his party leadership for not more robustly confronting Republicans. They dismissed the California governor's critiques as those of a politician feeling his oats after easily thwarting a recall and said Newsom was in frequent contact with the West Wing. And one Biden adviser noted that Newsom feels enough affection for Biden to have posted pictures of his children with the president on social media during Biden's trip to California last week.\n\nAs for Hillary Rodham Clinton, few Biden advisers think she will mount a challenge against him, although her recent Financial Times interview made it clear she's eager to have her voice in the political conversation. Clinton has made little secret of her frustration that she has not been consulted more by Biden. But White House aides believe they can direct Clinton's energy toward assisting with the public response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe.\n\nWhen pressed about why Biden is so intent on running again, the president's defenders point out he did what Clinton did not, defeat Trump.\n\nStung about their perceived treatment, they also recall other recent Democrats -- President Bill Clinton and Obama -- who rebounded from low approval numbers and rough midterm elections to win second terms.\n\nBut Biden's age -- at 79, he is the oldest president in American history -- has fueled skepticism those presidents didn't face.\n\n\"Trump is a senior citizen, too,\" shoots back Fletcher Smith, a former South Carolina legislator, reprising a line White House officials use, as well.\n\nDemocrats remain so alarmed by the threat that Trump, 76, represents that Biden's aides argue they will be insulated from a primary because such a race will be perceived as effectively aiding the former president, a life-or-death question for American democracy.",

        "body": "Michael Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, a Ghanaian comedian and teacher who is better known as Teacher Kwadwo, has complained about how poorly the country is being run right now.\n\nHe said that President Nana Addo has been bad, even though he campaigned for him in 2016.\n\nIn an interview on Accra's Metro TV, the teacher who is in trouble with the government said he is saddened by what is going on in the country right now.\n\nBridget Otoo, who runs the One on One show, asked him if he regretted supporting Akufo-Addo. He said, \"No, no, no. It's over, so why should I feel bad about it?\n\n- -\n\n\"Whether you're sorry or not, it's already happened, so let's figure out what to do next. I'm just sad about how things have turned out because this is not what I expected. It's just sad,\" he emphasized.\n\nIn the education sector, he complained about how poorly the Free Senior High School Policy had been put into place. He blamed the government for the lack of textbooks and bad infrastructure in some parts of the country.\n\n- -\n\nTeacher Kwadwo was fired by the Ghana Education Service in 2021. Among other things, the letter said that he was grossly disobedient. Several critics said that the popular teacher was fired because he worked for teachers and students.\n\nIn a recent video, he talked about how a new school building for Kofi Gyae Me Primary School students had been locked up and that some of its rooms were being used by forestry commission workers.\n\nTeacher Kwadwo can be heard yelling about how the building wasn't being used for what it was meant for.\n\n\"This room is supposed to be the office of the headmaster, but it is locked. This is another room that is supposed to be a classroom for the children, but it is being used by the Forestry Commission right now. Look at where the children are learning, \"On Friday, June 17, 2022, he cried in the video.",

        "body": "Arise Ghana Demo Organizers are calling on all Ghanaian to join the masses today to register thier displeasure at the increasing cost of living and hardship in the country.\n\nThe group noted that they are specifically looking at the increased prices of fuel and transportation fares, prices of food and utilities. The also want the government to repeal the E-Levy.\n\nThe interesting question is whether any demonstration in this Nana Akufo-Addo Era has produced any positive outcome.\n\nA careful analysis indicates that not a single demonstration yielded any positive outcome.\n\nRecent Fix country movement tried a couple but their cry fell to deaf ears.\n\nThough demonstration are meant to be voice for the ordinary, a means to inform the government of thier predicaments, they have are yet to produce any positive outcome.\n\nThe government had not revised any decision because the citizenry said they don't want it. A survey before the implementation of E-Levy said about 70 percent of Ghanaians said they were against yet the government went ahead and implemented it.\n\nLet's wait and see if today's demonstration will yield any outcome.",
