Presspeep.com chanced on names of some notable Hollywood actors who are actually Ghanaians by birth/ancestry. They have relocated but their root is in Ghana. Read about them:

Peter Mensah

The agent reached Zavier Lewis, a senior education major, and explained that the director of an upcoming movie called ‘Coach Carter’ was looking for a young male to act the part of a teenage basketball player.

The agent asked Lewis to help him reach Gbewonyo and see if he wanted the part. Soon Gbewonyo was on a plane back to his home state, where he filmed the movie. Since then, he’s starred in many other movies, “Gran Torino” being one of them.

​Emmanuel Boateng favours Black Stars over USA national team

Emmanuel Boateng
Ghanaian-born Galaxy attacking midfielder, Emmanuel Boateng says he will relish the opportunity to feature for either Ghana or the United State at the national level, but has expressed keen interest in playing for the former.

The ex-Helsingborg IF midfielder, who is now making waves in the Major League Soccer (MLS) with his side, has revealed his admiration for national assignment and is ready to don the national colours of any of the two nations that are seeking for his services depending on the seriousness level of their respective gaffers in his pursuit.

”I was born and bred in Ghana and I’ve a lot of friends here. When it comes to the decision of playing a national team football, I think I’m ready for the task,” Boateng said on Kumasi-based Angel FM.

”If any coach in Ghana gets in contact with me and tells me that he’s in need of my services depending on the kind of talks we shall both have, I think I’ll make myself available for Ghana.”

”But then again, should I receive a call from both coaches of the nations[Ghana and USA], I think I’ll consider the one that will be more serious in my pursuit, although I’ll like to play for Ghana as I’ll be very much elated to embrace such an opportunity,” he reiterated.

​Plastic rice: FDA seeks information from public

The (FDA) has asked members of the Ghanaian public to offer information with respect to suspected plastic rice on the market for appropriate action to be taken.
The FDA’s head of communications, James Lartey, has said although the authority believes the plastic rice is not on the market as is being speculated on social media, members of the public who think there is should make information on the location and those behind it available to the FDA for appropriate measures to be taken.

​Chibok girl recalls ‘miracle’ release by Boko Haram

When Boko Haram fighters decided to release some of the 200 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped two-and-a-half years ago in northeast Nigeria, Asabe Goni did not think that she would be among the girls allowed to go home.
During their time in captivity the girls were encouraged to convert to Islam and to marry their kidnappers, with some whipped for not doing so, but Goni said otherwise they were treated well and fed well until supplies recently ran short.

Hungry and ill, the 22-year-old did not even have the energy to stand up in October when the fighters said that any girls who wanted to be released should line up. She sat and watched as other girls scrambled to get into line.

“I was surprised when they announced that my name was on the list,” Goni told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. “It was a miracle,” she said, while expressing regret that she had to leave behind her cousin who was also abducted.

“I never knew that I would return [home],” Goni said. “I had given up hope of ever going home.”

A group of 21 girls was released two months ago after Switzerland and the International Red Cross brokered a deal with Boko Haram. They have been held since in a secret location in the capital Abuja for debriefing by the Nigerian government.

But the girls have been taken back to the Chibok area in Borno state to spend Christmas with their families, returning home for the first time since being seized from their school in April 2014.

“I was very happy when they said I should go home,” Goni said in an interview in her family’s home in the northern city of Yola, surrounded by her father, stepmother, five siblings and several neighbours.

The kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls from Chibok in April 2014 hit international headlines and prompted global figures, including US First Lady Michelle Obama and a list of celebrities, to support a campaign #BringBackOurGirls.

None of the girls were seen again until May this year when one of the students, Amina Ali, was found in a forest with a baby and a man claiming to be her husband.

Her discovery prompted hopes that the girls were alive and Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari pledged to ensure the release of the remaining girls in captivity.

‘I was in great pain’

Recalling the abduction, Goni said the girls, which included her younger cousin Margaret with whom she had lived since she was a child, trekked for three days through Sambisa forest, Boko Haram’s vast woodland stronghold, before they arrived at a camp.

“I was in great pain,” she said. “Many of us didn’t stop crying until about three months after we were kidnapped.”

While the girls were not forced to convert to Islam, the fighters told them that they would all be sent home if they did so, said Goni. Neither were they forced to marry, she added.

“But the way they talked to us about it, you would be afraid not to,” she said, recalling how the girls were sometimes flogged with a whip. “That is why some were convinced to marry.”

Goni said the girls were otherwise treated well by the fighters. They were given material to sew clothes and fed three times a day until recently when food became scarce.

The girls told state officials they were not abused or raped, and all tested negative for sexually transmitted diseases, according to a confidential report based on a two-week debriefing prepared for Buhari and seen by the Thomson Reuters Foundation in November.

When Goni was released, she did not have time to say goodbye to Margaret, whom she calls her sister, or the other girls.

“Some of the other girls left behind started crying,” she said. “But the Boko Haram men consoled them, telling them that their turn to go home would come one day.”

Nigerian authorities say they are involved in negotiations aimed at securing the release of more of the girls, while the army has captured a key Boko Haram camp in Sambisa forest.

About 2,000 girls and boys have been abducted by Boko Haram since 2014, with many used as sex slaves, fighters and even suicide bombers, according to Amnesty International.

​While a student at Wesley Girls, I wrote to Mahama and he replied

Naa Adzoa Adzeley Boi-Dsane

It was a normal afternoon at Wesley Girls’ Senior High School when I received a parcel from the General Office.

It was during the period of the WASSCE therefore my parcel had already been scanned (which I was not too happy about but it was for the good of the school).

Well, I was not really expecting any gifts from anyone because my mother had already visited me two weeks earlier hence my ‘chop-box’ was running over with provisions. So I opened the parcel and to my surprise the gift was from the Office of the President!

It contained an autographed copy of his book ‘My first coup d’etat’ (which I started reading as soon as I laid hands on it) along with a letter. Then I remembered that I had written a letter to H.E President John Mahama some weeks back.

In the letter, I gave suggestions on various topics – education, infrastructure, tourism, interaction with citizens and even went ahead to talk about the nature of the roads to most of our tourist sites which need to be improved. Even though I wrote the letter, I doubted that I would get a reply but I wrote and posted it anyway.

So it was quite surprising and humbling to know that my voice was heard. This experience along with current occurrences has taught me a lot concerning the President (some of which I would share soon).

Though I may not agree with some of the decisions and actions he took during his term of office, I would like to focus on the positives in this article.

First of all, I would say that his letter to me taught me a lot of things.

1. My voice was important. He could have ignored whatever I wrote in my letter (after all I was just a second year General Science student who had little experience about matters involving governance at the time) but he chose to respond. This made me realize the power of communication especially through letters.

2. His reply was encouraging. In the letter, he was very appreciative of the fact that I took initiative to express my thoughts and he expressed keen interest in my progress at school. He went ahead to give me some encouraging words as well.

3. His book was informative, intriguing and entertaining. I learnt a lot about leadership and decision-making through his book. From what I watch on television, I think President John Mahama has a great sense of humor and an entertaining personality therefore I wasn’t surprised that I kept flipping each page with some form of excitement wishing the stories never came to an end. I also got the chance to have a peek into his youthful years of life.

These last two points are not based on my direct interaction with him but on certain events.

4. Respect for the rule of law. The Election Petition revealed a lot about the President and our country at large. However, one of the lessons I will never forget is to respect the rule of law irrespective of one’s position. Even though President John Mahama was in power at the time, he went through court proceedings and allowed the systems to work as they should hence corroborating his respect for the rule of law in this situation.

5. A patriot, lover of peace and democracy. Today, I use these words to describe the President because of his courage to accept defeat and respect the will of the people despite his wishes.

This is not to imply that he is perfect. However, I believe that Ghana is blessed to have had such a president. In the same spirit of happiness and patriotism I say congratulations to President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo. I have not had the opportunity to interact with President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo but from a distance, I admire his courage, persistence and resilience.

Lastly, I am not a member of any political party; I wrote this because I believe in acknowledging good values. I want to assume he replied to many others like me, which would really be a good thing.

Politicians must be humble – Dr  Lawrence Tetteh

Dr Lawrence Tetteh, an International Evangelist and Economist has asked politicians to make humility the bedrock of leadership and “must walk the talk of humility”.

He also urged the citizenry to note that the 2016 general election was over and must therefore close their ranks and unite to build Ghana.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Accra, he said: “The battle is over, let’s unite to build the nation.

“Ghanaians should let 2017 be free of the political competition, which leads to the soiling of the hard won reputation of people.”

Dr Tetteh also the President and Founder of the UK based World Miracle Outreach said there was no draw in the game. Only one person won and “so let’s rely on God for divine direction for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President-elect and look towards the bigger picture- Ghana”.

He said the intemperate language that characterised the 2016 elections should stop, adding that the practice gave the impression to people outside the country that Ghanaians were at war.

He observed that though Ghanaians made so much noise about conflicts they were always associated with the culture of togetherness.

Dr Tetteh said Ghanaians should continue to be the agents of peace and come together in a massive united front for the interest of the nation.

He said Ghanaians should learn to be political without being partisan, deal with social matters and should be discerning about issues. They must also stand for principles and not personalities.

He asked Nana Akufo- Addo to see his three times approach towards the Presidency as an act of God and should, therefore, let Godliness be his pursuit.

“God knows how to put the pieces together.

“You have the time to start your tenure as President and the time to leave office. Try and leave a good legacy for the country and strive always to be closer to your God,” he said.

He advised the President-elect to be wary of the people he surrounded himself with since most leaders were destroyed by the personalities around them.

“Nana Akufo-Addo should not hesitate to call people who are not playing to his tune to order,” he said.

He said the incoming president should not be guarded by emotions and avoid the misinformation that may emanate from sources like the Social Media.

Dr Tetteh commended President John Dramani Mahama for conceding defeat in the elections and Nana Akufo-Addo for taking the same action in 2012 when the New Patriotic Party lost the Election Petition at the Supreme Court.

He said whoever looked down on the decision taken by President Mahama and the President –elect should monitor developments in The Gambia, where Yaya Jammeh the incumbent Head of State, had lost elections but refusing to step down.
