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.

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 ...

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.

Sam Okudjeto has had his say, but…

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Thursday, July 21, 2016 Folks, when those who should have known better not to talk “by heart” fail to do so and speak non-sense, we will take them to task. Failed politician, Samuel Okudjeto who claims to be a constitutional lawyer, has spoken his mind on goings-on as far as governance in Ghana is concerned ...

A Donald Trump Presidency for the United States?

Thursday, July 21, 2016 Folks, there is much truism in the saying that a country deserves the kind of government it gets. In historical epochs, the whirligig of government often reflects much about the state of the country and the aspirations or conditions of its people. The people will definitely deserve the government that rules them. If they cherish anarchy, ...

By Dr. Michael J.K. Bokor Monday, July 18, 2016 Folks, it is disturbing to read news reports that political violence has begun erupting in some parts of the country, Walewale in the Northern region blazing the trail so early in the main campaign season.
