Nana Akufo-Addo and his “All piss be piss”

News reports that the NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo desecrated a mosque in Damongo by urinating on its walls during his recent visit to the area came as no surprise to some of us. The persistent recourse to insults and plain calumny as political tools suggests that such news reports won’t be anything extra-ordinary

Is Sekou Nkrumah a straw man in Ghana politics?

By flitting from one political camp to the other at the least prompting, Dr. Sekou Nkrumah isn’t doing anything good to shore up his political fortunes. He seems to be in deep trouble as he flirts with all the political families, which raises a fundamental question: What is his motivation for participating in Ghana politics?

Hon. Ambrose Derry Should “CHILL”

Permit me to express my opinion, on the running mate issue in the NPP. I have heard a number of names being put forward as possible running mates to Nana Akufo-Addo. However, one name that sends chills down my spine is that of the MP for Lawra/Nandom, Hon. Ambrose Derry. The Deputy Minority Leader is a fine politician who aptly demonstrated his political capabilities when he unseated Hon. Benjamin Kunbuor in the 2008 elections. However

Dr. Bawumia Is The Best Choice! It’s That Simple

To have a matured, experienced, proven political leader like Nana Akufo-Addo as presidential candidate, and a young energetic, handsome and affable international technocrat like Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia as running mate, to lead the NPP to the 2012 presidential election, is one “Dream Team” any political party desirous of enhancing the well being of our country, will be envious of

Re: When 72 Sheep Bleat at the Ofori Panin Palace…

I was taken aback when I read an article by one Dr.Michael J. K. Bokor with the above title a few moments after the Okyeman Council had imposed a fine on Odehyee Agyei Boateng, an Asona royal who had apparently accused the Okyenhene of involving himself in the galamsey business that has engulfed Akyem Abuakwa and also remains an enigma in the country at large

As the NPP threatens and Anyidoho roars…

Every well-meaning Ghanaian must be alarmed at the spate of threats coming from the NDC government and its opponents (the NPP camp, especially). It is as if some people are convinced that their party will win the elections only through the volume of threats they issue. Poor souls

When 72 sheep bleat in the Ofori Panin Palace…

Soon and very soon, there will be much bleating in the Ofori Panin Palace at Kibi when 72 sheep are herded in there as payment of the hefty fine imposed on Odehye Kwame Boateng, the man who accused the Okyenhene, Amoatia Ofori-Panin II of involvement in illegal gold mining in the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Area of the Eastern Region

Certainly, the NDC knows how to destroy itself

I have chosen to be the devil’s advocate and will say aboveboard that the NDC is digging a deep grave fort itself. As its functionaries engage in misguided actions and the government continues to lose public goodwill because it can’t fulfill its electioneering campaign promises

Kennedy Agyapong reflects the weaknesses of our Parliament

The NPP’s Kennedy Agyapong is often in the news for the wrong reason. His latest outburst that the country will be turned into “Rwanda” if the NDC attempts rigging the 2012 elections sums up everything about him and all others who have been given the power to help solve problems but often choose to do otherwise
