Comedians And Actors Are Not Going To Determine The Outcome Of Election 2016

Wednesday, February 10, 2016
He has been making the news headlines for all the wrong reasons. Well, actually the main reason is that he has unwisely ventured into the realm of a pollster. This is no anomaly because it is about Ghanaian politics, and in Ghana it is self-styled pollsters and prophets who call the shots. At lea ...

It Is Not Absolutely False, Mr. Mahama

Tuesday, February 9, 2016
New Yorkers are fond of saying that ldquo;Whatever goes around comes around. rdquo; This dictum is akin to the Akan maxim that ldquo;The very stick used in striking Takyi is also used in striking Baah. rdquo; In other words, our fates and destinies are inextricably intertwined. It is the mo ...

K. T. Is Reacting Like An Illiterate

Tuesday, February 9, 2016
After his Tsikata about turn, in the matter of some illegal severance payments made to the fired and convicted former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, I have come to the sobering conclusion that it is not worth a hill of beans for me, or anybody else, ...

Alexanda Kotey Is An Anglo-cypriot Isis Operative, Not A Ghanaian!

Monday, February 8, 2016
It may be a sly ploy aimed at ldquo;naturalistically rdquo; roping Ghana into the outrageous vortex of global terrorism, now that President John Mahama has unwisely consented to playing host to Messrs. Bin Atef and Al-Dhuby, the two Saudi-born high-risk Yemeni terrorists detained for some 14 yea ...

He Is Not Really Banning Politicians From Campaigning In His Township

Monday, February 8, 2016
He is simply doing what every rural-community chieftain ought to be doing ndash; boldly and vigorously demanding his people rsquo;s justifiable share of the proverbial national cake. His name is Nana Odiasempa Kwaku Boadu; and he is Chief of Adrobaa in the Tano-North District of the Brong-Ah ...

Greenstreet Is Too Vindictive To Be An Effective President

Saturday, February 6, 2016
Two years ago in Kumasi, the Asante Regional Capital, when the then-General-Secretary of the rump-Convention People rsquo;s Party (r-CPP) was invited as a guest-speaker of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet mordantly lit into the leadership of the host part ...

When Politicians Take The Media For Granted

Wednesday, February 3, 2016
Don rsquo;t get me wrong; Ghana as a country is quite significant in its own right. It also has quite an enviable sociopolitical and cultural history. But that is about all that there is to the country presently. In the global scheme of politics, economics and culture, our country pales far in si ...

Ben Ephson Is Full Of Crap

Wednesday, February 3, 2016
We are all well aware that Mr. Ben Ephson is on the payroll of the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC). And so the so-called Managing-Editor of the Daily Dispatch newspaper should stop holding himself off as a seasoned journalist endowed with any modicum of professional integrity ...

Akufo-addo Should Steer Clear Of The Treacherous “biden Complex”

Monday, February 1, 2016
His congratulatory message to Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, the newly elected rump-Convention People rsquo;s Party (CPP) Presidential Candidate for Election 2016, was smack in order and timely to boot. However, his decision to admonish ndash; it actually sounded more like an avuncular patronage ...

Samia Nkrumah: Cpp Lacks Integrity

Sunday, January 31, 2016
We will shortly get to her rather outrageous and presumptuous assertion that it was the ldquo;ideals rdquo; of her infamous dictator father that eviscerated British colonial rule from Ghana. But for now, we are more interested in highlighting what the former Chairperson of the rump-Conventio ...

Don’t Be A Hypocrite, Mr. Mahama

Sunday, January 31, 2016
Make no mistake. I take the brutal assassinations of Messrs. Adams Mahama and Abubakar Saddiq very seriously, even as those of you who have been reading my columns for a considerable while can readily attest. What I detest most, however, is this self-righteous posture assumed by President ...

Who Is Edmund Delle Deceiving?

Saturday, January 30, 2016
A press release written by Dr. Abu Sakara (aka Michael Foster), the 2012 Presidential Candidate of the rump-Convention People rsquo;s Party (r-CPP), aptly and poignantly noted that the rump-CPP had become the effective preserve of the biological scions of President Kwame Nkrumah. I co ...

It Takes A Conductor To Know The Chorus

Saturday, January 30, 2016
I have read Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby rsquo;s article titled ldquo;Gitmo Two: lsquo;It rsquo;s Surprising Nana Addo is Leading the Chorus rsquo; rdquo; (Peacefmonline.com / Ghanaweb.com 1/25/16) ndash; at the request of Dr. Von Fleischer, a regular reader of my columns, by his own testi ...
