In the Ghanaian Media and Political arenas, Afia Pokuaa, popularly known as Vim Lady has been very instrumental and iconic in spotting the greatest errors committed by Government officials. She also takes deeper delight in setting the agenda so high by giving key recommendations to correct such mistakes.
Her 'Critical Issues' Show on United Television is indirectly promoting inclusive Governance and participatory media activism across the length and breadth of this country.
Ideally, she is one of the most resilient, eloquent and assertive women Ghana is ever blessed with. She touches areas where brave men are never willing to go.
In extreme cases, she tells Government on the face, if a particular decision is going to be detrimental to the development and well-being of every citizen in the country.
On the Emoluments to the First and Second Ladies of Ghana, Afia Pokuaa has emphatically blamed our lawmakers for their inability to resist a report produced by a Committee set up by the government to look deeply into Article 71 of the 1992 Constitution and make key recommendations on it.
The report admitted that the law does not justify the Government to pay salaries to our First and Second, yet parliamentarians pretended as if they knew nothing about it. The committee made those recommendations based on humanitarian grounds.
In view of that, Vim Lady has blasted the MPs for voting for something they vividly know is not legal.
She has tagged them as "hypocritical beings" who only care about themselves. Since they are also benefiting from that report, they had no option but to vote happily for it.
There are so many of pointing out the mistakes of our leaders without attacking them verbally on TV, but it appears Vim Lady wants to follow the footsteps of the Assin Central MP, Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong.
Although this is so unusual of Vim Lady, she could however also be in a big trouble for making such comment.
