I'm not paid to take only popular decisions- Pres. Mahama

President  of the Republic, John Dramani Mahama has justified the tripartite hikes in prices of utilities, fuel and taxes,  saying he is not president to take popular decisions.Speaking  to the  press to mark the third anniversary of the president's government, government found it necessary to mop up the windfalls of petroleum prices after the drastic drop on the international market, in order to deal with the longstanding debt of the country's utility companies.

Assets of DKM Microfinance will be liquidated- Pres. Mahama

 In a related development, President Mahama says he has instructed the BNI to locate and confiscate  the properties of CEO of DKM Microfinance company, Martin Delle until investors are refunded their money.
