Necessary New Deals

Saturday, August 29, 2015 The death of Samuel Nuamah, the New Times Corporation reporter, in the line of duty has provoked various thoughts since the unexpected incident occurred. In our editorial yesterday, we expressed dismay over a raging argument over whether the accident report had been blown out of pro ...

Show Deference To Samuel Nuamah

Friday, August 28, 2015 We have observed the rather unnecessary arguments over whether the vehicular accident in which Samuel Numah lost his life was the result of the driver 39;s recklessness or not. The points raised for us are uncalled for and the energy being expended in what is inching towards polemics by p ...

Time To Act Is Now

Thursday, August 27, 2015 Islamic clerics, opinion leaders and other stakeholders in Muslim dominated parts of the country have been sufficiently pricked to take action against the brainwashing of children from these parts. We have no doubts in our minds that they are doing all that they can to protect the vulnerable yout ...

Security Alert

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 News about some Ghanaian youth joining the ranks of extremist Islamist State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) shook the country yesterday. It is an eye-opener which thankfully our security agencies, especially the National Security Council, have already been working on quietly. It is our prayer that t ...

What A Relief!

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 We cannot ignore the decision by the membership of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) to call off their industrial action. Their decision, we have learnt, has nothing to do with either the threats issued by the health minister or the unguarded remarks of serial callers on the payroll of t ...

Avoidable Fatality

Monday, August 24, 2015 The accident which claimed the life of the Ghanaian Times reporter, Samuel Nuamah and left some of his colleagues in critical condition at the 37 Military Hospital, is regrettable and sad.

Wise Men Where Are You?

Saturday, August 22, 2015 The announced intervention of the National House of Chiefs in the government/doctors imbroglio is a welcome development. Relieving as it is, it should have nevertheless come long before now, but better late than never. Had it come before now, those on the government side would have put on their m ...

Our Beloved Country

Thursday, August 20, 2015 Listening to a former President of the Junior Doctors' Association, one Dr. Abdallah yesterday, we can only say that government must adopt a more efficient means of disentangling the knot that is the doctors' industrial action. There is a deep gulf between the two parties, one which must be narro ...

Poignant, Revealing (1)

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 There could not have been a more poignant case for a new voters' register than Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia's presentation yesterday. The reality of a compromised voters' register and the exigent need to replace it received a compelling fillip by the time the gentleman was done with his presentation. ...

Hoodlums On Rampage

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 The story about irate youth exacting corporal punishment on a suspected gay in Nima as carried in yesterday's edition of this paper left all those who read it panting for breath. For those who chanced upon it on social media some of them could not watch the whole clip, having had to abort the vie ...

Pending Armageddon

Monday, August 17, 2015 A group of prominent personalities, among them a former Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) and Christian clerics embarked upon a demonstration in the Eastern Region recently. The action was apolitical and so not much was heard about it. It was all about the environment's degradation 8211; a subje ...

Roadworthiness Blues

Saturday, August 15, 2015 There have been occasional swoops by law enforcement agents on fake roadworthiness certificated vehicles these past few months.
