Mills Clears Baba Kamara

Baba Kamara

THE STRESSFUL moments are over for Alhaji Baba Kamara as President John Evans Atta Mills clears him to assume the position of Ghana High Commissioner to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The expected presentation of the letter of credence to the gentleman fizzled out a couple of weeks ago, prompting news reports that his name had been dropped even after his nomination for the appointment earlier.

Baba Kamara, by this development, has surmounted a critical hurdle having been mentioned to the dismay of even President Mills by Dr. George Adjah-Sipa Yankey, former Minister of Health, as the man who encouraged him to receive the controversial Mabey & Johnson bribe money.

Although the documents dropped by Ms. Betty Mould-Iddrisu were said to be damning, resulting in the rather immediate exit of two ministers including Dr. Yankey, Alhaji Baba Kamara’s case, by the development, did not receive the sledgehammer of the UK court after all.

Dr. Sipa Yankey was widely flayed for engaging in the radio station rhetoric, even after denying ever receiving any bribe money. The principal personalities cited in the bribery saga; Dr. Sipa Yankey and Alhaji Amadu Seidu, have exited their political appointment following the breaking of the news story.

Baba Kamara, a one-time Deputy Treasurer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is largely a self-educated man who reads avidly and was even touted at a point as a possible vice president. Alhaji Baba Kamara stands tall among financiers of President Mills during his long sojourn in the political doldrums.

He is respected in the Islamic community because of his generosity and affableness. Hailing from Salaga in the Northern Region, and with his Islamic background, many see him as the right peg in the diplomatic hole in the Ghanaian mission in Nigeria.

Others who were handed their letters of credence by the President at the Castle yesterday were Lee Ocran; South Africa, Vallis Achianu; Serbia, Daniel Ohene Agyekum; USA, Ms. Anna Annie; The Netherlands and Donald Turkson; Canada.
