Is Akufo-Addo also not digging his own grave?

Since gaining independence, Ghana has been ruled by all kinds of leaders, the majority of whom shot their way into office and suffered the consequences, either chased out or leaving the scene only to be dragged to the firing squad. The three civilian leaders among them (Dr. Nkrumah, Dr. Busia, and Dr. Limann) lost power to the soldiers and lived in abjection till death did them part

Nana Akufo-Addo Ditches Bawumia

No party compares or come close to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) when it comes to sweeping issues or things under the carpet. They are masters and very good at keeping the lid on stinking issues as long as it takes or able to bully their way through to keep everybody guessing. Even when there is internal wrangling, unlike the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the NPP is always able to whip their members to submission or force their members to

Nana Akomea Is A Kenkey Politician

It is not easy or funny to find your back suddenly glued to the wall in a helpless situation.

Akufo-Addo Says Ewes Have Been Voting One Way

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote. ~George Jean Nathan. If you entertain the ambition of ever holding a public office, be warned of remarks you make today, especially if you happen to have people around you. In the pursuit of your political ambition, if you intend to court the votes of a certain ethnic people, group or an organization, you better not make any disparaging comments against them since those remarks could come back to haunt you big time

Are Motor Cycle Drivers Above The Law?

It is agonizing for me to admit that in Ghana it is painless for some people to break the law with impunity and get away with it. That is why when we see some people doing certain things which we consider as unlawful, we normally just look at them and move on quietly without questioning them or their motives in doing those things. These little things which we fail to question, over time, become overblown national crises
