Government Needs To Release Prisoners Who Are Convicted Because Of Cannabis – Nana Kwaku Agyeman

Published

on

ACCRA, GHANA, March 28th, 2020/www.gbafrica.net/ It was just recently that the government of Ghana announced the decriminalization of the use of Cannabis for Industrial and Health purposes.

This news made a lot of waves on social media, especially when some Ghanaian celebrities hailed the President of Ghana for making that decision. The likes of Shatta Wale, Black Rasta, Samini and many others.

However, one man who has been on the toes of the Government with regards to cannabis is Nana Kwaku Agyeman, the Hemp Association of Ghana.

“The Government of Ghana should release those prisoners who have been convicted of possession of small amounts of cannabis for personal use. A lot of innocent people are languishing behind bars, families destroyed and the possibility of them become citizens and not spectators become lost! Free the prisoners and reintegrate them back into society” Nana Agyemang said this is in response to the Narcotics Control Commission Bill’s 2019 softly approach to convictions for small amounts of cannabis.

Nana added that cannabis is not a bad thing and using it for the right purposes can bring a lot of income to the nation. He urged all farmers out there who are willing to try cannabis farming to come to the Hemp Association and follow the required proceeding to earn good money after cultivation.

    Do laws take retrospective effect? In this instance, they were jailed on the existing laws before this new law was passed. The penal consequence was as a result of crime committed against the state. On the reverse, if the law required all criminals to be jailed, did all offenders obligingly come under the effect of the law as expected? The state could never go wrong.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for
    newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    P.S. If you have a minute, would love your feedback
    on my new website
    re-design. You can find it by searching for «royal cbd» — no sweat if you
    can’t.

    Keep up the good work!

Senegal Erupts Into Protests Over COVID-19 Lockdown Measures

Published

on

Protests have erupted in Dakara, Mbacké, Touba, Tambacounda and Diourbel with youths taking to the streets to protest against the curfew and ban on regional travel amid the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Clashes have also occurred between the protesters and security forces in Senegal according to reports by Aljazeera. The lockdown measures have been in effect for almost three months now as part of efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic.

According to AFP, at least 70 protesters have been arrested thus far. However, the protests are set to continue indefinitely with President Macky Sall having extended the lockdown measures to the end of June.

Unrest in the religious city of Touba prompted the caliph of the Mouride Brotherhood, Serigne Mountakha Mbacke, to make a late-night television appearance. Mbacke appealed to protesters saying, “Go home. Tomorrow we will look at the source of the problems and how to address them. I don’t think we have ever seen this in Touba.”

Similar protests recently erupted in Guinea with six protesters losing their lives following clashes with the police and security forces. Roadblocks set up by authorities in Coyah and Dubreka sparked unrest with protesters claiming that they were being mistreated and extorted by authorities when entering and exiting the capital city.

The total number of coronavirus cases in Africa now stands at just over 160 000 cases and at leat 4600 reported deaths. Senegal has just under 4000 cases and 45 deaths while Guinea has approximately 3933 cases and 23 deaths according to BBC‘s Coronavirus in Africa tracker.

#JUSTICEFORUWA: Nigerians Call For Justice Following The Murder Of A Student In Church

Published

on

LAGOS STATE – Monday, June 1, 2020 – Nigerians are fed up with the prevalent and continued gender-based violence in the country and are rallying online under the banner of #JusticeForUwa. Those who are on the ground have already begun to mobilise crowds in order to protest.

Recently, 22-year-old student Vera Omozuwa was murdered last week in a Benin City church. Omozuwa, who was studying microbiology at the University of Benin, was reportedly attacked by a group of men and subsequently succumbed to her injuries in a hospital three days later.

Many have called on the government and those involved in the investigation of Omozuwa’s murder to ensure that justice is served for her, her family and the hundreds of women who continue to experience violence at the hands of men.

What does remain unclear, however, is how Omozuwa was brutally attacked in a church during broad daylight without anyone coming to her aid.

Commenting on gender-based violence in Nigeria, Amnesty International released the following statement:

“While the nation is still coming to terms with this gross violation, in Jigawa state 11 men were arrested for raping a 12-year old girl at Limawa in Dutse, the state capital. Although rape is a crime in Nigeria government’s response to it continues to be, woefully inadequate…Rising cases of rape across Nigeria is a result of the failure of law enforcement to ensure that rapists face justice. We are deeply concerned that perpetrators of rape in Nigeria invariably escape punishment.”

The death of Omozuwa came just a day after 16-year-old Tina Ezekwe was reportedly shot by a stray bullet after two police officers fired shots during an unconfirmed incident in Lagos. Although the teenager was rushed to the hospital, she died two days later, according to Nigeria’s Premium Times.

Last year, hundreds of Nigerian women took to the streets in protest following a spate of murders that took the lives of eight women in various Port Harcourt hotels.
