Mahama Is Not Doing Well For The Country, Period!

Thursday, July 31, 2014
I heard about this rumor quite awhile back but did not deem it to be worthy of any serious attention. It was not because I did not believe that it contained any iota of truth and/or credibility. Largely that any fetching social status of such cynosure was also highly likely to court the raw envy ...

African Leaders Need To Respect Farming More

Thursday, July 31, 2014
The need to drastically transform agriculture in Africa, in order to make the land yield its equivalent in food production like many a technologically advanced Western country, cannot be gainsaid. And so it is very much in order for Mr. Kofi Annan to call for the rapid transformation in farming m ...

Extorted Cpp Property Cannot Be Returned

Thursday, July 31, 2014
I have already responded to this rather bizarre call by the Nkrumacrats to have the Ministry of Information building in Accra returned to the rump-Convention Peoples Party CPP, and so I intend to be brief in this response to Mr. Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, editor-publisher of the New Crusading Gu ...

The Presidency Is Not For Mediocre Apprentices

Thursday, July 31, 2014
He vigorously campaigned for then-Interim President John Dramani Mahama, and even planted propagandistic stories seeking to damage the reputation and undermine the credibility of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the main opposition New Patriotic Party; and so it is rathe ...

Danquah Died For Free Speech And Choice, Mr. Ohene-ntow!

Thursday, July 31, 2014
He used to be General-Secretary of the main opposition New Patriotic Party NPP. Now he is freely and shamelessly shilling for Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Quitman Kyerematen as the latters spokesman. I dont know how much he is being paid for his comical efforts, but Nana Ohene-Ntow may be screaming ...

Akoto-osei Ought To Become Part Of The Solution

Wednesday, July 30, 2014
He was President John Agyekum-Kufuors third cabinet appointee, or so, to the portfolio of Finance Minister, and so I tend to take Dr. Anthony Akoto-Osei far less seriously than the man clearly appears to take himself. Nevertheless, some of his admirers claim that the New Patriotic Party Member o ...

Boakye-agyarko Is Right-on-target, Dr. Mchyprocrite!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Once again, I hate going to bat for Akufo-Addos 2012 Presidential Campaign Manager, Mr. Boakye-Agyarko, solicited or unsolicited. But in this instance, I have been compelled by the unconscionable sophistry of the eternally disgruntled Dr. McHypocrite to weigh in on the side of truth and fairness ...

Is President Mahama Not Undermining His Own Health Minister?

Monday, July 28, 2014
The decision by President John Dramani Mahama to replace the once ousted Chief Executive Officer of Ghanas flagship health center, the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Rev. Albert Okpoti-Botchway, with Dr. Gilbert Buckle, may well signal the beginning of the presidents rocky relationship with his ne ...

No, You Have Actually Induced Poverty, Vice-president Amissah-arthur!

Sunday, July 27, 2014
When in the wake of the mysterious passing of President John Evans Atta-Mills, on July 24, 2012, the then-Interim President John Dramani Mahama picked then-Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Mr. Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur as his Vice-President and running-mate for Election 2012, there was strong an ...

You Can't Eat "potential," Mr. British High Commissioner!

Sunday, July 27, 2014
I have no doubt that the new British High Commissioner to Ghana means every word of it in principle, at least, when Mr. Jon Benjamin describes the former African colony of his countrys as a vibrant country with huge potential See Ghana Is a Vibrant Country with Huge Potential - UK High Commi ...

"alan Cash" Sobriquet Was Not Imposed!

Saturday, July 26, 2014
I keep reminding Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Quitman Kyerematen that it is only the truth that will set him free, and then legitimately prepare him to wisely and more constructively contest the flagbearership of the main opposition New Patriotic Party NPP in the foreseeable future. You see, Ghanaian ...

Touche, Okyenhene!

Saturday, July 26, 2014
Somebody I have been vehemently disagreeing with for quite awhile now, recently wrote that he yearned for a Rawlings-type revolution in Ghana. Like me, that scoundrel has been living here in the United States for ages. I did not get to read the article in question; the very hollow and infantile c ...

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 ...
