By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Sunday, April 17, 2016 Folks, the events characterizing Akufo-Addo’s defeat at Election 2012 are still fresh in one’s mind. No matter how the NPP plays its game, it can’t clean its slate. And no amount of bravado on Kufuor’s part can do the trick either. Here comes the other issues beyond the confines of the ...

Is Kufuor the bugbear for Akufo-Addo? (Part III)

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Sunday, April 17, 2016 Folks, we know that the NPP emerged from the efforts of the late Atakora-Gyimah of Nkokoa-Buoho in Offinso and some Asante academics at the KNUST, not to talk about the tacit support given them by traditional rulers and the so-called Men-of-God who found the Rawlings Movement as a scourge. The Danquah-Busia ...

Is Kufuor the bugbear for Akufo-Addo? (Part II)

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Sunday, April 17, 2016 Interestingly, the genesis of Akufo-Addo’s problems in the NPP can be traced to this very Kufuor factor. For those who don’t know the truth about the disparity between both, let me cite some happenings to prove that the challenges facing Akufo-Addo in the NPP—not to talk about the entire country and ...

Is Kufuor the bugbear for Akufo-Addo? (Part I)

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Sunday, April 17, 2016 Folks, there is a conundrum for the NPP and its Akufo-Addo—whether to rely on ex-President Kufuor as the prime-mover for their political campaigns toward Election 2016 or to sideline him and go their own way.

Why must President Mahama go when the NPP cannot come in?

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Sunday, April 10, 2016 Folks, it is common knowledge that the battle cry of the NPP politicians and their buffs is that President Mahama is incompetent and must be voted down at Election 2016.

Who says “patapaa” can win election 2016 for the NPP?

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Saturday, April 9, 2016 Folks, I have been very clear in my criticism of the rogue and book politics being done by Akufo-Addo and his NPP cabal all this while.

The Okyehene can do better

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Sunday, April 3, 2016 Folks, news reports that the Kyebi Executive Council has banned two Eastern Regional executive members of the NDC from visiting the Okyehene’s palace in Kyebi might be regarded by some as surprising. Not so to me. Inklings from the posturing of Kyebi citizens opposed to the NDC, political events involving them, ...

Akufo-Addo’s real enemies are in the NPP, not elsewhere

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Wednesday, March 30, 2016 Folks, the government has acted swiftly to deport the three South African undesirables from the country (See http://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/Three-South-African-ex-police-officers-deported-426650). If Capt. Koda and Akufo-Addo are MEN, let them bring those undesirables back.

Mensa Otabil is talking rubbish again

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Wednesday, February 17, 2016 Folks, I have had several occasions to take on Re. Mensa Otabil and charlatans of his ilk who are abusing the pulpit to do dirty politics. I haven’t regretted for putting such politically motivated “Men-of-God” where they belong in public discourse regarding the challenges of development facing our country. They are ...

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Wednesday, February 17, 2016 Folks, the NPP is reported to have “petitioned the National Media Commission (NMC) over what it calls unethical broadcasting at Montie FM, an affiliate station of Accra-based Radio Gold.” Its reason?
