The Dangerous and Frightening mindset of President Mills

Wonders, they say, shall never end. Otherwise, how do you explain a situation where the so-called enlightened and educated members in the nefarious contraption could deliberately misinterpret and give a twist to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s “All did be die” statement and make it appear as if the utterance was reckless and portends grave danger for the unity of the country

Fighting the opposition, the enemy, and the traitor?

I am particularly concerned about the implications of what the Rawlingses have set in motion, which Rawlings’ violent-laden utterance portrays: “…We will be fighting all kinds. If we are not fighting the opposition, you have the enemy also on one hand, and you have the traitor also on the other.”

Ghana doesn’t need Nana Konadu’s bubonic-plague politics!

Nana Konadu has actualized her ambition by picking nomination forms from the NDC Headquarters to contest the Flagbearer position with President Mills. From what has transpired already, I can say that she is a non-starter already. But poised to cause confusion, she will now begin her campaign of calumny. She must be put where she belongs. My approach here is a meant to serve that purpose

Bogus preachers should stop preaching the word wrongly

Ghanaians are not ready to listen to any bogus preachers who do not know what he or she is up to in life. In recent times there have been different people who claim to be preachers of the Holy word (the Bible). Whether they are males or females, they do not deserve to be called pastor because they do not know what the word pastor mean

Libya: Withdrawal of United Nations staff is not the answer

The United Nations has decided to pull its international staff from Tripoli (Libya) to avert any physical attacks on them. The UN’s decision followed the vandalizing of its mission in Tripoli following the latest military operation by NATO that killed Gaddafi’s 29 year-old student-son, Saif al-Arab Gaddafi and three of his grandchildren yesterday

Libya: Do we already have martyrs?

The International Coalition (NATO) smells blood in Libya and is going for it. NATO has just killed four unarmed, innocent members of the Gaddafi family. Twenty-nine-year-old Saif al-Arab Gaddafi (Gaddafi’s son studying in Germany but home to spend time with his family) and three children (Gaddafi’s grandchildren) were murdered in a bombing operation by NATO which destroyed their residential villa

The NPP’s Primaries—Matters Arising

The NPP has successfully conducted nationwide primaries to choose its Parliamentary candidates for the 2012 elections. Despite the confusion in some of the constituencies or the initial cancellation of the elections in 10 others (for reasons already explained by the party’s leadership), everything went according to schedule and results released to tell us who will be contesting the Parliamentary elections where

Ivory Coast: Ouattara faces his first major challenge

As is to be expected, those who live by the sword will definitely perish by the sword. In life, it is patently clear that what you love is what will kill you. Ibrahim Coulibaly, leader of the so-called militia group (Invisible Commandos) has been killed by forces of the country’s new President, Alassane Ouattara

Libya: The Madness Continues

It is now abundantly clear that the International Coalition is bent on removing Gaddafi from office through violence. The New York Times has reported the West’s WAR PLAN that should not leave any shred of doubt in anybody’s mind that the West entered Libya not to solve humanitarian problems but to remove Gaddafi from office and install in his place those who will serve their interests

Libya: Will the West listen to the Pope?

At long last, a powerful voice of reason has emerged to prove to the partners in the International Coalition that political problems must be solved through political and diplomatic means, not the flexing of military muscles. That powerful voice has confirmed arguments that humanitarian problems cannot be solved through the creation of more humanitarian problems

Will there be two Libyas, after all?

My persistent criticism of the devastation of Libya by the US, Britain, France, and their allies in the NATO or Arab League is not to be seen as my support for Gaddafi’s long rule and the desire for him to continue in office to suppress dissension or molest his own people. Far from it. My intention is not to lionize Gaddafi either

Libya: The stalemate that the West fears Part I

Indications are clear that the powerful states of the West have chosen to wear their military prowess like a badge even though it is not helping solve the crisis that made them rush into Libya more than a month ago. The admission by the US Admiral Mike Mullen that the Libyan situation is reaching a stalemate confirms what some of us foresaw at the very initial stages of the armed rebellion against the Gaddafi regime and wrote on
