More Bad Cops

Monday, August 29, 2016 We wish we were not raising the issue about the number of law enforcement agents dragging the image of the agency in the mud. Unfortunately, given the rising number, we are constrained to return to it albeit regrettably and with a lump in our throats. What could account for the rising incidence o ...

A Truce Is In Order

Saturday, August 27, 2016 We have observed a rise in the President's adrenaline level as he seeks the nod of his compatriots in the forthcoming polls.

Friday, August 26, 2016 Reports of incidents of monetary extortions at our entry points both at the ports and border posts across the length and breadth of this country have been rife, but most often than not, it is only those who fall victim that feel the pinch of this menace. It is unacceptable when perpetrator ...

Without Decency, Dignity

Friday, August 26, 2016 Bishop Daniel Obinim's arrest and matters arising thereof have exposed our failings in the manner we handle suspects.

Charlotte’s Overtures

Wednesday, August 24, 2016 The chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) appears to have opened a new chapter in her relations with the media and therefore Ghanaians which we find laudable.

Intelligence Failure

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 What happened in Donkorkrom was avoidable we can bet.

Unfortunately nothing ...

Pastors Must Lead Exemplary Christian Lives

Monday, August 22, 2016 Wonders, they say, shall never end, and indeed, wonders are happening in Christendom in Ghana, as men who wield the holy book 8211; The Bible 8211; have reportedly neglected their faith in the God they are serving, and have rather resorted to consulting juju men for powers to win more members. ...

Unwelcome Decision

Monday, August 22, 2016 The Donkorkrom incident is nightmarish and disturbing. The knee-jerk reaction of the Police Administration has not helped matters.

Daring The Law

Saturday, August 20, 2016 Oye Lithur has reportedly alerted the Police about the Daniel Obinim saga.
