The Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah bounces back but…

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Tuesday, February 11, 2014 Folks, as I said in my earlier post on the conflict between Rev.

Taming the doomsday shrew, Rev. Isaac Owusu-Bempah

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Tuesday, February 11, 2014 This spiritual shrew-mouse called Rev. Isaac Owusu-Bempah, Founder and Leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, is notorious as a prophet of doom.

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Saturday, January 8, 2014 My good friends, we have been disturbed for many years that despite its enormous natural and human resources, Ghana (our beloved country) is still in the doldrums.

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Friday, February 7, 2014 Folks, the challenges facing our country at several fronts are characteristic of a society in transition; but they have to be confronted and tackled so they don’t derail our democracy.

Lack of public education hurts Mahama-led administration

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, February 6, 2014 Folks, I will bluntly say upfront that the Mahama-led government has lost the communication and information sector as a potent force in good governance.

As Ghana returns to a two-party political stream…

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Tuesday, February 5, 2014 Folks, Ghana is on course to return to a two-party political stream. There is no hope for any third force under the guise of the pro-Nkrumahist family. Sooner than later, pro-Nkrumahism will be no more. A viable political party that wants to remain so does things to grow, not to disintegrate ...

No Spiritual Power Can Stop the Depreciation of the Ghanaian Cedi

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Monday, February 3, 2014 Folks, let’s be blunt upfront to say that the extent to which the so-called Men-of-God in Ghana are carrying their obsession with “spirituality” is more than annoying.

The NPP’s kind of “internal democracy” is in full gear

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Tuesday, January 28, 2014 Folks, I like the drama unfolding in the NPP camp. I like it that goings-on paint the kind of picture of the NPP that its leaders and followers cannot fail to see as the culmination of their “rogue” politics now turned sour. Having expended energy and resources disparaging the NDC, the ...

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Tuesday, January 28, 2014 Folks, Nigeria seems to be on the brink of catastrophe at many levels. While the terrorist group Boko Haram wreaks havoc on the society in North-Eastern Nigeria, the country’s politicians gathering in the safe haven of Abuja are bickering over raw political power with the opposition threatening to block the government’s ...

All this self-projection for Akufo-Addo is useless

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Saturday, January 25, 2014 A string of self-damaging utterances have helped the NPP’s Akufo-Addo to score many own goals. We know him as such: “I must win the Presidential elections at all costs”; “All die be die”; “Yen Akanfuo”; “the late Theresah Tagoe, has a big butt”, “I am a virile man-—ask the young women”. ...

There is a lot wrong with the Ghanaian

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Friday, January 24, 2014 My good friends, I will stick my neck out to make some generalizations for a purpose. Ghanaians have a major problem that is difficult to tackle: widespread indiscipline, disregard for law and order, and the penchant to dare the devil. There is also a strong motivation to get-rich-quickly, damn the consequences. ...

Enough of your lamentations, President Mahama!!

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, January 23, 2014 Folks, we are in trouble. Deep, deep, searing trouble. In the midst of plenty, we are suffering—just because we have eyes but can’t see. President John D. Mahama said at the opening of the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland) on Wednesday that his government couldn’t implement the windfall tax introduced ...
