Let Fairness, Peace Prevail

Tuesday, July 7, 2015 The people of Talensi go to the polls today to elect a representative for the House of Parliament, the reason for which is too glaring to be rehashed. Be it as it may, we are constrained to ask that all should play by the rules so that at the end of the day we can individually give a pass ...

Despicable Cover-Up (2)

Monday, July 6, 2015 The Judgment Debt Commission and the report emanating from it are anything but sincere and veracious. Little wonder both are as smelly as what informed the decision to empanel the Commission. The haste to leak the report says it all about the excitement of the political establishment and t ...

Ridiculous Discrimination

Saturday, July 4, 2015 The so-called government support for displaced Sodom and Gomorrah residents to return to the North was after all a selective exercise unworthy of plaudits. Those who were unfortunate to be labelled New Patriotic Party (NPP) sympathisers were left out of the gravy train by organisers of the ...

Despicable Cover-Up (1)

Friday, July 3, 2015 Leaked snippets from the Justice Apau judgment debt report appear to be corroborating the fear expressed by many that it was nothing but a journey into political vindictiveness and image destruction of opponents. It was a tendentious action by those seeking to profit from a political misch ...

Right On Point

Thursday, July 2, 2015 The president of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) spoke the minds of many Ghanaians when he took exception to the undue abuse of state powers at the hands of some security personnel, including the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI). Nene Amegatcher was speaking during the 33rd[/SU ...

Fifty-Five Years Of Republican Status

Wednesday, July 1, 2015 Fifty-five years ago Ghana our beloved country, attained a republican status. The Queen, who since independence was still our head of state, ceased to exercise that symbolic position over the new nation. It has been a long journey since we took complete hold of our destiny, the assessment ...

Open Letter To Charlotte

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 Welcome to the hot seat. Yours is one of the most demanding positions in the country. Upon your shoulders rests an inordinately stressful assignment, the mishandling of which can spell doom for the country you call your motherland. In spite of questions raised about the impropriety of your ...

Presidential Faux Pas

Monday, June 29, 2015 President John Mahama has appointed a successor to Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan. The appointment of Mrs Charlotte Osei as the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) has, however, not been bereft of controversy. It has suffered a congenital defect and therefore lost the remedial leverage that could ...

Back To The Exam Hall

Saturday, June 27, 2015 On Monday our kids would return to the examination halls to rewrite their cancelled papers. It is not an easy task, especially for kids their ages to have their papers cancelled in the manner theirs was done. We have heard about how some of them even said they would not rewrite the papers. We wan ...

Stranded And Desperate

Friday, June 26, 2015 Many of the displaced residents of the Sodom and Gomorrah slum are said to be stranded in Tamale, unable to make the final lap to their various towns and villages. Some of them have pointed at places like Bimbilla, Kpatinga, Gambaga and other areas in the North as their termination points ...

Absurd Novelty

Thursday, June 25, 2015 The judgement debt settlement for contract deal is a government arrangement and not an Ekwow Spio-Garbrah initiative. Sounding as weird as it is bizarre, it can only emanate from a desperate government bereft of ideas on how to turn bad things around. It is an arrangement we are at pain ...

Slum Dwellers' Fury

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 Last Monday morning saw a spontaneous demonstration of victims of the demolition at the Sodom and Gomorrah (Old Fadama) slum. The protest march became violent when the crowd started swelling, a development which could have brought Accra to its knees but for the mature skills exhibited by Commissi ...

Stop This Queen Mother

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 The queen mother of Kissi in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem Municipality of the Central Region has threatened to have paraded in the streets of the town, all pregnant junior high school (JHS) girls. That is her weird and crude prescription for stopping the social anomaly. To join in the st ...
