By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Wednesday, December 2, 2015 Folks, when I read a news report yesterday that the NPP’s Dr. Bawumia would respond to the budget statement presented to Parliament by Mr. Seth Terkper (Minister of Finance), I had a huge hunch that the response would be nothing other than the “emotive language” feeding the NPP’s “Concert Party” enactments. ...
