Agyapa Remix: Government about to present the same deal in different form in Parliament.

The botched Agyapa deal that looked like a dead and buried case is about to resurrect, just like many predicted at the time President Akufo-Addo ordered for its withdrawal from the tables of Parliament. Of course, it was rather suspended

The suspension was occasioned by a massive opposition to the deal, and with the 2020 general election on sight, the most prudent action was to suspend it at that material moment. Even though some predicted that, the deal will be reintroduced after the elections, for many, it was going to be the end of a suspected family and friends cooked "chop-chop". 

The former thoughts were right as we are here today, where the deal is rearing its controversial head again. 

But it seems the NDC minority in Parliament are wide awake and very alert to arrest any proposal that takes the shape or form of the first deal that was thrown out of the house. 

It is heartwarming to note that, the former deputy minister for finance, Casely Atto Forson has given indications that, he has seen the newly drafted deal, and has already noted two instances of change that must occur. 

The government, through the finance minister, is bent on pushing through this particular deal. Why they want to use any means to make this unwanted Agyapa deal happen, is a mystery we must all solve. 

I urge all well-meaning Ghanaians to be vigilant and show interest in any processes involved in birthing anything that seeks to monetize Ghana's future gold revenues. 

We owe this to the future generation of the ordinary Ghanaian.
