Akufo-Addo asks Ghanaians to chase him away

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, August 11, 2016 Folks, I don’t want to believe what has been attributed to the NPP’s Akufo-Addo: “Everyone who comes with the language of division or tribalism is one who has no love for Ghana. Please, do not pay heed to those who come to you with such language. Chase those kinds of people ...

What a boring major political electioneering campaign season?

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, August 11, 2016 Folks, how many months more to Election 2016; and what a boring season we already have? Nothing invigorating. It’s all about boorish politics by the opponents and inaction on the part of the incumbent, who seems not to know how to use his massive accomplishments to market himself to neutralize those ...

‘Mugabe’ attacks Okyenhene; and so what?

Saturday, August 6, 2016 Folks, the media scene in Ghana is dominated by mediocrity, which explains why just anybody at all can set up an FM station or establish a newspaper hub and use it for whatever purpose. If that is what democracy entails (by way of freedom of speech, so be it; bit it is not what a democracy ...

Why is Dr. Nduom wasting his money, energy, and time?

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Friday, August 5, 2016 Folks, it is often said that a chicken that will turn into a cockerel is noticed the very first day that it is hatched (thanks to the legendary novelist, Chinua Achebe).

Has Rawlings shot down Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings?

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Monday, August 1, 2016 Folks, I am still piqued by the impact of Rawlings’ revelation and confirmation of rumours that the late Nigerian strongman, Gen.

I see nothing wrong with the sentencing of the Muntie FM presenters

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, July 28, 2016 The Supreme Court’s action against errant Muntie FM presenters and management has generated needless controversy that we must end now. I have abstained from commenting on the event because to me, what is understood doesn’t have to be explained.  Now that a closure has been found to the matter, I am ...

Finally, an Association of Fulanis in Ghana has emerged (Part III)

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Monday, July 25, 2016 Several efforts at an amicable solution have failed. The government’s deploying of security personnel hasn’t solved the problem either. Neither will the NPP’s Akufo-Addo’s impulsive promise to tackle the problem when put in power end it. What can he offer now to solve the problem? Nothing!! So, where does it take ...

Finally, an Association of Fulanis in Ghana has emerged (Part II)

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Monday, July 25, 2016 The truth must be underlined here that those against the activities of the Fulanis are not schizophrenic or savages who hate to see others make progress in their chosen fields of human endeavour. They are simply unhappy that the Fulani presence undermines their own chosen vocations. They won’t lose any sleep ...
