    Dear Mr President, It 39;s been 3 years you were sworn into office; when you asked us to be citizens and not spectators. That speech, although plagiarized was highly inspirational. A couple of weeks ago you did say that, ldquo;you were feeling on top of the world rdquo;. Good for you, but sadly we the Ghanaian people don 39;t feel same. In fact, we feel the exact opposite of everything good. And why won 39;t we, the state of insecurity in our country is depressing and deeply frightening. ... more

While there is universal social protection coverage for people in high-income countries (HICs), four in every five people in LICs, and nine in every ten people in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) have no basic social protection.

    In Ghana, some researchers on gun laws have often cited the Magna Carta and the 2nd Amendment in the USA as a justification to support the claim that the right to bear arms in Ghana is an inherent fundamental human right? While I don rsquo;t agree with that view, I cannot say I strongly disagree with that claim either because I believe it rsquo;s based on a flawed interpretation. The call to bear arms is very clear in both the Magna Carta section 61 and the 2nd Amendment of the USA, ... more

    The annual ritual of floods in Accra has really become overwhelming. The horrendous havoc of the rains continues to show how punctured our garments of leadership have become.

That is why we generate garbage and dump same into the poor drainage systems we have in the city. ... more

    It seems like a grand ploy of massive distraction. On the surface, the move by Alabama to place the most onerous restrictions on the granting of an abortion has become a lighting-rod of conviction for Democrat agitators. And not just them. The fear, and one with suggestive implication, is that various legislatures are paving the way to push Roe v Wade into the domain of a Supreme Court so conservative it is being touted as reactionary.
