Akufo-Addo to die in service to Ghana?

Tuesday, October 11, 2012 The NPP’s Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is daring the devil in Ghanaian voters.

Instead of flogging the dead “Asomdwehene”…

Saturday, August11, 2012 As is to be expected, those who have no concrete solution for solving the country’s problems are still fouling our air with their useless political rhetoric.
