Will this be my last comment on the NPP? Hell, no!!

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, October 22, 2015 “The New Patriotic Party (NPP’s) National Executive Committee (NEC) has unanimously voted to suspend its National Chairman Paul Afoko indefinitely”. (See http://www.ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/NewsArchive/Paul-Afoko-suspended-as-NPP-Chairman-389503). I read about the rumpus at the NPP’s national headquarters this morning and the press statement issued by Kwabena Agyepong, General Secretary, and laughed out loud!! The very people ...

If all were like Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare…

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, October 22, 2015 Folks, if there is any single Ghanaian “Man-of’-God” who deserves respect and praise as far as public comments on the Ghanaian electoral process is concerned, it should be none other than Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare, the founder of Perez Chapel International.

Who founded the NDP for Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings to lead?

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Saturday, October 10, 2015 Here is another revealing aspect of Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe’s concern. He seems to be worried that Akufo-Addo’s tour won’t fetch any electoral capital for the party for as long as nothing concrete was coming out of it to attract floating voters.

Instead of condemning Dr. Nyaho Tamakloe… (Part I)
