RESPECT BABY MAMAS!…WE ARE ALSO HUMAN BEINGS – Caroline Sampson

Radio and TV personality Caroline Sampson has appealed to Ghanaians to go easy on baby mamas, especially if they do not know their stories.

A ‘baby mama’, according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, is the mother of a man’s biological child, especially one she is not married to or in a long-term, intimate relationship with the child’s father.

According to Caroline, who has an eight-year-old son, everyone wants to insult a baby mama and call her names without even finding out the circumstances that led to her being in that situation.

“I used to worry a lot when I was called names because those commenting did not know the real story as to how I had my child. And it is hurtful for someone to say very bad things about you when you know very well what is being said about you is not the truth,” she said in an interview with Showbiz.

Caroline said before anyone came at a baby mama, they had to first have the right information and also consider if they would be comfortable being at the receiving end of hurtful comments.

“I know some people talk loosely because they see one or two baby mummies doing just anything to take care of themselves and their baby but if you are not in their shoes, you cannot tell them how to walk.

“Everyone has their hustle so people should not attack us because we have kids. Having a child out of wedlock is not the end of the world and we are not lesser women.

“What about those in the church always praying to God to have babies? It’s quite unfortunate some of the men who
impregnate the women have children elsewhere, but they don’t call them born-one,” she stated.

Using herself as an example, Caroline said it would be wrong for anyone to think that she made her money through unacceptable means, explaining that she worked hard to secure a better future for her son.

“There are a lot of single mothers out there who are making it big time on their own to cater for their children. Not all baby mummies are lazy and do anything for money,” she said.

Asked how she controlled the guys trying to win her heart, Caroline, who is the host of Shouts On Yon YFM said men were the least of her worries right now, disclosing that she dedicated about 90 per cent of her time to her work and her family.

OSCAR DOE RECEIVES THREATS AFTER EXPOSING CORRUPT GHANAIAN LEADERS KILLING BUSINESSES

In a strongly-worded public post, the Chairman of Doscar Group, Oscar Yao Doe revealed that there is a deliberate aim by certain individuals in the Ghana economic sector to hurt him, and subsequently stop him from accessing credit in the Ghana banking sector.
This revelation is coming on the heels of the revocation of Unibank Ghana Limited, where Oscar has a pending credit transaction that the Receiver appointed for the bank, as well as the Bank of Ghana have yet to reconcile, several months after.
In his post, labeled ‘The Destruction of Indigenous Banks, Local Businesses,Well-To-Do Individual Ghanaian Business Owners (Dr. Ndoum, Duffuor Family, Kofi Amoaben Family, Ato Essien Family, The Awuah Darko Family Etc.) They Say We Should Fear! Fear Who? Fear What?,’, Oscar revealed different examples of decision-summersaults, taken taken by the current runners of the Ghanaian economy, that have leading to economic chaos.
Read his post below..
“As a corporate executive, business owner and a father of community, I came to the conclusion that everybody has their own hidden interest in every situation. This is classically the human nature. It’s hiding in everyone, including myself. Therefore, any leader (who wants) to succeed (always has to) ask critical questions before arriving at decisions. (As a leader) if you make your decisions based on the opinion of other people, they will mislead you to make wrong decisions. And you can even be trapped by making your friends, enemies.
Example 1: The President relied on the opinion of former Energy Minister, Hon. Boakye Agyarko to make decision on the AMERI Deal which went wrong. Reading the document carefully, and asking critical questions could have aided the president to have clarity on the matter.
Example 2. The President also relied on the advice and opinion from our usual degree holders top advisors for the PDS Deal, which also went wrong. And it has brought a big challenge on the government.
It is also now clear that a certain element within the finance ministry( MOF), and the Bank of  Ghana (BOG), allowed KPMG & Nii Amanor Dodoo to use KPMG in twisting an incomplete audit report, which led to the collapse of several indigenous banks. This is THE TRUTH! You can see ego, show them where the power is. You can see clear vendetta in making this decision!
And then, they appointed Nii Amanor Dodoo as Receiver to cover up his own deeds! Why not appoint a neutral person as a Receiver to validate KPMG Audit for the good Of Ghana. What stops them from rescuing this indigenous banks and local businesses. Even if there was indiscipline, even if they were facing financial difficulties. That would have been the best decision for Ghana! Save them and then tightening regulations; including implementing new tough rules and regulations for the future.
Example 3: Can you imagine I was told 3 million US Dollars paid in 2015 towards my loans at Unibank has been tracked to a ledger? Another ledger, perhaps millions of ledgers, as if I was the treasurer of Unibank or I turned myself into a spirit to put the money in my Account. Or I hacked into Unibank computers to lodge the money Nii Amanor Dodoo is claiming into my account. This is unheard off (completely alien). I have multiple examples of my dealings that I can refer to with ith clear evidence, which doesn’t make sense.
I just even discovered recently that some irresponsible, faceless people at BOG have placed fictitious records at the Central Banking Credit Control, showing that I am in indebtedness to Unibank (to the tune of) over 8 Million. This aim is designed to hurt me so that I wouldn’t be able to access credit in the banking system in Ghana. Weird!
Meanwhile, I have paid my personal loans at Unibank since the bank was subjected into administration. I have also settled my other obligations towards other banks, which is also under receivership. Payment were made directly into the Receiver’s bank account, and there is ongoing reconciliation with the Receiver, in which the Receiver and BoG have demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt, bad faith in resolving the outstanding matters.
So, I asked BoG to explain or give further clarity and I am yet to receive a response! I am waiting. They better response fast! Who knows? Who cares?
Is this the kind of mindset for the 21st Century? Can this kind of reasoning unleash prosperity ? Can this kind of actions from people in strategic positions take Ghana to a premium economy status? Time will tell.
I made a strong case in a letter to the Governor  of Bank of Ghana (BoG). The 1st Deputy Governor,  2nd Deputy Governor and also copied the Presidency and other stakeholders, challenging the Bank of Ghana. If this is the analogy. If this is how KPMG, led by Nii Amanor Dodoo arrived at their figures. Or if this is the trend they used to deal with. And was that what they used to destroy our indigenous banks and local  businesses? Then there is a red flag!!
Let’s go deeper and find out what really occurred during the audit; for the sake of Ghana, and for posterity. Because Ghana is not the property of an individual. It is not the property of a particular tribe. It is not the property of a particular family, not even the President. Therefore, there is an obligation on appointed officials to make decisions in the interests of Ghana Only. Ghana is for all Ghanaians. We have an obligation and responsibility to make decisions that take everyone on board regardless of their mistakes and shortcomings.
Rescuing and saving our indigenous banks and local businesses could have been the better option if the decisions were made fairly with compassion, forgiveness, caring, for the sake of not pushing out our own people, Ghanaian business owners, and well-to-do Ghanaians into the wilderness, empty-handed.”

BUSINESS MOGUL KING OSCAR DOE EXPOSES CORRUPT LEADERS KILLING GHANAIAN BUSINESSES

Ghanaian businessman, Oscar Yao Doe who is the President & Executive Chairman of Doscar Group Holdings has exposed the rot bedevilling the Ghanaian economy, which has caused setbacks to the development and prosperity of the country.

He particularly singled out the inefficiency of people appointed as Receivers to some financial institutions and local companies that collapsed recently.

In a public statement he posted this morning, the Doscar Group Chairman hit out at the Receiver for Unibank Ghana Limited, Nii Amanor Dodoo, who is the Senior Partner at KPMG Ghana. One of Oscar’s companies, Prime Properties has a pending transaction with Unibank before it went into receivership. He is however pained that the Receiver was not capable enough to work out any reasonable reconciliation/resolution for the said transaction (between the parties concerned) despite several attempts made by him for months. In his post, KingOscar lamented that Ghana is in trouble!

Read his post below…

“I wrote a letter on 19th February 2019 to KPMG and Nii Amanor Dodoo. Even before that, I started the initiative on the same subject since November 2018. I Only received this attached empty-headed response on August 2 ,2019! Ghana is In Trouble!

We have too many non-professionals, petty gossiping minds, (who) make decisions based on hearsays and petty gossips. And as a result, they are stumbling blocks to prosperity! They have loads of degrees but zero reasoning!

The 21st century needs leaders who are larger than life; leaders who makes decisions with open mind; leaders, ho have compassion, who are honest, just and fair-minded. Leaders who have pure hearts, (and posses) the ability to understand this moment of history and act accordingly, not for themselves!

I told Mr Nii Amanor Dodoo many times in our meetings in the presence of his team, ‘if you’re not capable of making decisions, please recuse yourself for your own good’. I also told him, ‘my friend, your company KPMG, led by yourself has done an audit which has brought a lot of indigenous banks and local businesses aground and that appointing him to cover up his own rot was a conflict of interest’. I told him too that he’s lucky Ghanaians just let things go by, which is why he has gotten away with this action. 

So, I encouraged him not to delay the pending reconciliation and resolutions, because (it appears) he has nothing to lose himself. Rather, it is the affected parties that are hurting in serious pain. I reminded him several times. God in heaven and his team are my witness. 

I have had a larger-than-life (lifestyle) for more than 20 years. Sometimes, people ask me why I support the Arts & Culture Industry! I do so, because (that) is the future! Musicians, actors, artists, designers, and other Culture & Tradition practitioners bring so much relief to human sufferings and (I believe) that’s why I have been blessed to understand the value of supporting Art & Culture! My eyes are deeper! I just want to see the best for everyone! I am with zero envy and a huge personality. I am aware of this strength (from) way back. The blessings on earth can contain everyone, (that is) THE Truth!”

She indicated that anytime they are faced with challenges, they should seek direction from God for he will grant them the needed grace and favor.
