Ken Agyepong Has A Point, But...

Thursday, July 24, 2014
If it is true that the General-Secretary of the Trades Union Congress TUC, Mr. Kofi Asamoah, sat on the Board of Directors of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust SSNIT that ratified the sale of Merchant Bank to Fortiz, then Mr. Kennedy Ohene Agyepong is apt in his assertion that ...

"a Legon Man" Sounds Better

Thursday, July 24, 2014
I read Mr. Yaw Asamoahs article captioned An Oxford Man Spyghana.com 7/16/14 some forty-eight hours ago, as of this writing, and was quite amused by its decidedly jaded nature. It is about a debate whose steam has long gathered droplets of cold water. In short, I was not going to respond to ...

Time To Rethink Our Residential High-school System

Thursday, July 24, 2014
It ought to have by now become clear to the government and the administrators of our traditional boarding high-school system that the old regime is no longer economically sustainable. I am here, of course, referring to the threat by the Conference of Heads of Assisted High Schools CHASS to shut ...

Mahama Government Must Be Removed!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
I have written extensively about the subject of the deliberate and unconscionable withholding of the book and research allowances of tertiary-academy faculty - or lecturers - by the Mahama-led government of the National Democratic Congress NDC, and so I do not intend to rehash my argument in de ...

Foreigners Supplement Your Fat Paycheck, Mr. Okudzeto-ablakwa!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
It is very amusing to hear the wet-eared thirty-something-year-old Deputy Minister for Education pontifically chide the United States for meddling in the sovereign affairs of Ghana. Maybe somebody ought to remind Mr. Samuel Okudzeto-Ablakwa that it is rich and powerful countries like the United ...

Don't Be An Alarmist, Dr. Aning

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
In the wake of the rash of industrial work stoppage and demonstrations across the country, Dr. Kwasi Aning, of the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Center KAIPTC, was widely quoted to be saying that if care was not taken by the leaders of these protest demonstrations, militants fr ...

Hanna Tetteh Is A Rather Cheap And Gauche Foreign Minister

Monday, July 21, 2014
As I write, hundreds of hired hoodlums in the pay of the bumbling Mahama-led government of the National Democratic Congress NDC are reported to have massed up in front of the American Embassy, in the Ghanaian capital of Accra, in protest against what Ms. Hanna Tetteh, Ghanas Foreign Minister, ...

$3 Million Brazil Flight Was Sheer Stupidity!

Monday, July 21, 2014
It may be deemed laudable to learn that Mr. Mahamas wallet holder, Mr. Seth Terkper, is unusually open about the manner in which he runs the affairs of the Finance Ministry well enough to be willing to break and lick egg-yolks with the general public, as it were.Still, there is somethin ...

It Shows The Poor Caliber Of Ndc Leadership

Monday, July 21, 2014
Gross incompetence is the most aptly charitable term that describes the caliber of cabinet appointees in the government of the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress NDC. And the woefully inadvisable decision of the former Minister for Youth and Sports, Mr. Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, and his depu ...

Why Citizenship Renunciation Ought To Worry President Mahama

Monday, July 21, 2014
The tradition of Ghanaians voting against harsh and oppressive conditions visited upon them by their leaders - both military and democratically elected - is nothing new. To be certain, it is all-too-universal and healthy for the most part. This is because travelling abroad in order to maximize ...

Cash Matters, But Character Matters More, Alan!

Saturday, July 19, 2014
Nobody is saying that Alan John Kwadwo Quitman Kyerematen has not remarkably contributed cash pun intended towards the establishment and sustainability of the New Patriotic Party NPP. What we are saying is that cash alone, even as Dr. Danquah once told then-Prime Minister Kwame Nkrumah du ...

U.s. Embassy Tweeted The Truth, Come On!

Saturday, July 19, 2014
I am quite certain that it was a genuine diplomatic faux-pas. I am, of course, talking about the alleged U.S. Embassy tweeter riposte to President John Dramani Mahamas rather insolent and downright condescending exhortation to Ghanaians that: As a people, we have had to make sacrifices. I wish ...

Does The Enquirer Speak For Mrs. Akufo-addo?

Friday, July 18, 2014
Dont worry, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia would step in if something politically untoward should happen to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. The former Deputy-Governor of the Bank of Ghana is presently the most savvy and professionally articulate economic light in both the main opposition New Patriotic Party ...
