It is reported that one of the rooms at the residence of the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Nii Armah Ashittey, has been turned into a banking hall where employees of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP) were paid their salaries.
As early as 7am, most of the NYEP personnel, including health extension workers, community police and other ancillary workers under the programme who had not been paid for the past seven months, queued at the regional minister’s residence located at Ridge, next to the Passport Office, displaying their appointment letters.

If you've read my article on 'Why I admire Nigerian Movies' you will understand why Nollywood has a place in my heart. Some actors and actresses I never miss their shows are; Patience Ozorkor, Olu Jacobs, Bruno Ihuoha, Pete Eneh, Pete Edochie, Florence Onoma, Christie Okonkwo, Maureen Solomon, etc.
One young actress I also admire so much is Tonto Dikeh. She performs her role with so much passion from being a President's daughter to a common house help.
However, I couldn't believe it till I saw it with my own eyes that Tonto has a controversial tatoo on her back in addition to 57 others on her body.

Shalom!
