Who Is More Dangerous Than You, Mr. Kojo Yankah?!

Tuesday, January 27, 2015
He was the Chief Propagandist for the Rawlings-led Provisional National Defense Council (PNDC), and yet Mr. Kojo Yankah would have Ghanaians believe that I, Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., am the most dangerous political commentator on the Ghanaian political scene. We know how you got to where you are ...

Dcop Kofi Boakye, What Do You Think Of This?

Tuesday, January 27, 2015
I am writing this brief piece in the wake of Mr. Kofi Boakye's bitter complaint that unsavory and inordinate politicization of the Ghana Police Service (GPS), and the security establishment in the country, in general, was adversely affecting the morale and professionalism of the personnel in the ...

Dcop Kofi Boakye Is Accusing The Wrong Government

Monday, January 26, 2015
I am not familiar with the minute details of the events that nearly led to the booting of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Kofi Boakye out of the Ghana Police Service (GPS), but it had absolutely nothing to do with the unsavory and inordinate politicization of the GPS, as Mr. Boakye would hav ...

It Is A Tired Old Debate

Sunday, January 25, 2015
Yes, it is a tired old debate, even though I think the crusade to changing our National Anthem from Mr. Philip Gbeho's God Bless Our Homeland, Ghana to Dr. Ephraim Amu's Yen Ara Asaase Ni, has far more substance than the equally prickly question of whether the country ought to revert to the old ...

Ghana Was Your Husband's Piggyback, Nana Konadu!

Saturday, January 24, 2015
There is nothing revelatory about Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings' characteristically self-righteous assertion that from 1992 to 2000, as a democratically elected President of Ghana, Mr. Jeremiah John Rawlings did not have a fixed salary (See JJ Rejected Salary As President - Konadu Ghanaweb.com ...

My Only Concern Is Lifeguard Availability

Thursday, January 22, 2015
News of the construction of a canopy walkway - Americans call it a pier - over a small portion of the Tema beachline, near the globally celebrated Meridian Rock, comes as quite refreshing news (See Ghana Gets Africa's First Canopy Walkway on the Sea Starrfmonline.com / Ghanaweb.com 1/3/5). The ...

Cut This Nonsense, Kpessa-whyte!

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte needs to explain further precisely what he means, when the Acting Excutive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS) claims that the Secretariat has prevented about 75,000 ghost names from being entered onto the 2014-15 payroll of the Scheme, and I mean every nuance ...

Ndc Is Kia Cocaine Transshipper, Mr. Adams

Tuesday, January 20, 2015
I am not here to defend the drug-war record of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), as I am not a card-carrying member of the party; neither do I have any forensically sustainable evidence to prove that the NPP has been more vigorously at war against drug-trafficking than their counterp ...

I Knew Emile Short Was In The Details

Sunday, January 18, 2015
She, obviously, could have been patriotically modest about her spending of the public dole/dough, in view of the fact that Ms. Lauretta Vivian Lamptey had been appointed Commissioner of the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) by the now-late President John Evans Atta-Mi ...

Asante Chiefs Cannot Defend The Indefensible, Otumfuo

Sunday, January 18, 2015
In the past, I have lauded him when I thought that the lately much-maligned King Solomon was diligently about the sacred and progressive business of the people, such as when he led the Sino-Western initiative to empower Asante chiefs economically, by schooling and enskilling them with entrepreneur ...

Franklin Cudjoe Slaps President Mahama Across The Face

Sunday, January 18, 2015
When they forced him off the so-called Ho Economic-Restructuring Initiative - or some such program - I wrote to roundly condemn what I then promptly envisaged to be a dastardly attempt by some Mahama appointees and party apparatchiks to doggedly pursue the rankly corrupt status quo which the othe ...

Dirty Dealing Portuphy Must Be Removed!

Sunday, January 18, 2015
I don't know what the rules of active political engagement in Ghana are, but it well appears to me that the Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Mr. Kofi Portuphy, ought to have been forced to resign his post the very moment that he publicly declared his intention ...

Strategic Tourism? What Is That?

Friday, January 16, 2015
If Ghanaians are complaining about the fact of their Fourth-Republican presidents seeming to far prefer embarking on constant travels abroad, (largely to the West), and incessantly hobnobbing and partying with their more privileged foreign counterparts, to staying staying at home, rolling up thei ...
