Come On, Alan Is A Dead Horse!

I sympathize, somewhat, with staunch New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwarts like Mr. Edward Enin, the Member of Parliament for Obuasi-East; but the fact of the matter is that Mustapha Hamid tells it like it is when he admonishes Alan John Kwadwo “Quitman” Kyerematen to take a hike, by either forming his own party

It is often said that opportunity knocks, but once. The onus therefore lies on whoever the opportunity falls to grab it, and if possible, make good use of it. It is thus disingenuous for anyone who fails to grab, and more importantly maximize it to blame others

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Friday, April 18, 2014 Folks, Ghana’s Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Seth Terkper, really has a tough skin. Never in our history have we had any government appointee of his calibre who could soak up so much pressure and still maintain his composure to do what he is in […]

I had wanted to make this write-up a two-part rejoinder, but there are a few remaining issues raised by Mr. Peter Mawunyo Dzidza that need answering or they may erroneously be deemd gospel truths when, in reality, these are nothing short of the desultory rumblings and fabrications of a clinically paranoid anti-Akan bigot

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, April 17, 2014 My good friends, there is no gainsaying the fact that much water has passed under the bridge that President Mahama has erected for improving conditions in Northern Ghana (let alone the entire country). His decision to establish the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) came across to […]

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Wednesday, April 16, 2014 My good friends, there is every indication that Alan Kyerematen has bounced into action, ratcheting up his political rhetoric to prove that he is on his feet to claim the slot as the NPP’s flagbearer. And he is doing so more robustly after the NPP’s national […]

Had he any remarkable sense of shame or dignity, Alan John Kwadwo “Quitman” Kyerematen would not be advising the leaders of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to do some “soul-searching” and hard questioning regarding why the party consecutively lost Elections 2008 and 2012

The ultimate expectation of the rank and file of the Npp has finally been delivered to them, change in leadership which many on the elephant’s sympathy radar consider as a sure recipe for victory come 2016

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Folks, I have read on Peacefm a news report under this heading, and really laughed my head (heart?) out loud!! Don’t ask me why. Obviously, the government has been putting the cart before the horse all this while; and it must just have realized its waywardness […]

“I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos—and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Monday, April 14, 2014 My good friends, the security situation in Nigeria is seriously being threatened by the heightening of terrorism by the resident Boko Haram. The latest act of carnage traceable to this terrorist group occurred today in the Nigerian capital city, Abuja, killing more than 70 and injuring […]

Let’s first get one thing clear: the assertion by Dr. Clement Apaak, the so-called Mahama Presidential Staffer, that the members of the Okyeman Youth Association’s call for Mr. John Dramani Mahama to proffer an unqualified apology, for rudely tagging the Akyem-Abuakwa royal capital as “the headquarters of Galamsey” is, somehow

Following his resounding electoral victory as National Chairman of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern Regional Capital of Tamale, Mr. Paul Afoko sent a strong and resonant signal that he was now his own man and, in effect

About 48 hours before a conference of New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegates was scheduled to elect party administrators in preparation for Election 2016, a pack of goons in an unregistered or plateless taxicab and two motorbikes was reported to have opened fire into a crowd of merrymaking NPP members and supporters in the Tamale
