NDC should concentrate more on Greater Accra

With the 2016 Elections campaign dynamically gliding down to the wire, I can say with all certainty that the NDC party has a lot of work to do before Ghanaians hit the polls on Wednesday December 7. And much of the work I must say is centered nowhere but the Greater Accra Region of all places. Please make no mistake; ...

A cause for great concern

As of the time of writing this piece, it is thirteen days to the elections, yes 13 days! And as I write, the democracy we practice has not provided us with the opportunity of having a presidential debate among the presidential candidates. In effect, there has been no intellectual argument on the policies to be provided we the people, among ...

Trend of election violence in UK, USA and Ghana

“You got to punch him in the face, I tell you”. This rhetoric became the ultimate election zinger for one of the candidates in the just ended controversial US election campaigns. This was used as a sound bite by CNN, so people who followed the US elections on CNN might remember this. Related to the controversies of the campaign, a ...

Mahama won’t apologise today or tomorrow!

Why are many people and organisations (including MFWA) calling on John Mahama to apologise for his recent comments which suggested NPP is anti-Northerners? Why must he apologise? And what must he apologise for? You may have your own ‘good’ reasons.But as far as the President is concerned, he has no regrets whatsoever. Ghanaians calling for apology can go and burn ...

Ghana Election 2016: The Silence of the Lambs

Two weeks. That’s how long Ghanaians have to make up their minds about who will lead the nation into the next four years. It’s supposed to be a Ghana election year, and after successful elections in 2008 (which saw a change of guard) and 2012 (which tested the country’s legal robustness), it should be a simple enough affair. Yet for ...

Ghana is much bigger than General Mosquito and his boss

These wishy-washy National Democratic Congress’ leaders are really funny, indeed. After imperiously taking all bets off the table, vis-à-vis the chance of participating in any debate hosted by the Institute of Economic Affairs featuring both President John Dramani Mahama and Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the country’s main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), the NDC Abongo Boys ...

Is swindler Alfred Agbesi Woyome still bragging?

It is really disgusting to see this “big big thief man” (as my Indian work colleague Bob Singh normally calls those he perceives to be thieves), Alfred Agbesi Woyome, still bragging. He has been saying with shameless audacity that he will soon be suing many Ghanaians for far bigger money than the GHC51.2 million he is alleged to have cunningly ...

The wrong Ghanaian perception about people, especially ‘Burgers’

To start with, who is a “burger” by the Ghanaian understanding? Mind you, it is not the chicken or the beef burger junk foods that we purchase, or eat, from, McDonalds and Burger King restaurants but a Ghanaian resident abroad. How are these Ghanaians often perceived by their colleagues or compatriots back home when they return to Ghana on holiday? ...
