• 6 hours Review Of Nana’s 3rd Year In Office ModernGhana -Opinion
    Introduction This year rsquo;s assessment of the president rsquo;s performance was purely based on a balanced score card approach. This takes into account the resources available to you and how you were able to put them into productive ventures given other competing interests. We also considered other alternative approaches we thought could be applied in addressing similar issues. My information is that, the government has since 7th January 2017 received over 80 billion Ghana Cedes in ... more

    For over half a century, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) serves as a focal point for its member states (MS) and as a clearinghouse between its members and the rest of the world.

    In the run-up to the 2016 elections, many of us(Muslims) vehemently supported and campaigned rigorously for the New Patriotic Party(NPP) and its success. We were of the firm belief and assertion that Muslims that are the second-largest religious denomination in Ghana deserved a fair representation in the top hierarchy of the leadership ladder in Ghana. We especially rooted for the NPP because that was the only political party going into the 2016 elections that had a Muslim as its running ... more

    If you were indifferent or saw no reason to vote in 2020, then the successful procurement of 300 Ambulances by the Nana Akufo-Addo Government for the individual constituencies as well as other key state institutions is enough reason for you to reconsider your decision and to vote for President Nana Akufo-Addo.

    Politics like life is always in a state of constant evolution. The way that things were, back in 1999, changed in 2007. Governor Odili and Omehia found this out the hard way. Since then, things did not stop changing and it rsquo;s now a lot clearer to many, that power of incumbency alone, is not enough to guarantee outcomes. Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing. Not even second terms. More and more people are beginning to have a say. Odili did not choose his successor, Amaechi suffered a similar fate, ... more

    It is of public knowledge that Sammy Gyamfi has been, remains and continues to be the greatest threat to the ruling NPP government led by the most incompetent and corrupt-driven Nana Akufo Addo and his cronies led administration. To say he is the greatest threat, to me, amounts to understatement; this is because he is the youngest and most vociferous outspoken opposition figure in the country who is bent on exposing the rot that has characterized Nana Addo 39;s led administration since its ... more

    Mustapha Hameed (not: Dr. Mustapha Hamid), Zongo and Inner Cities Minister, could not have hit the bull's eye any better than he did with his social media admonition to the Zongo youth. His deserving reaction was triggered by last week's busing of some youths from largely many Zongos in Kumasi to demonstrate against the compilation of a new voters' register. With his outstanding knowledge of the Garden City's Zongo communities, his intelligence about how the recruitment of the youth for th ... more

    The debate on the compilation of a new voters rsquo; register rages on.

    In the last week and half, we have all been subjected to the lecturing of ldquo;consultants rdquo; and ldquo;experts rdquo; leading the charge for the EC rsquo;s wasteful push to toss millions of dollars of barely used laptops and handheld devices in order to pave the way for the EC to spend $150 million (contingency inclusive) on a brand new system.

    The staples of international trades for Ghana and any other nation are the imports and exports. These may seem like terms that have little bearing on everyday life for the average person, but they can, in fact, exert a profound influence on both the consumer and the economy.

    A Cashless society is an economic concept where financial transactions are executed in an electronic format rather than using banknotes. Economies that are more cash-intensive tend to grow slowly and miss out on significant financial benefits.

These last choices are seen by many unemployed and the disgruntled youth as the ultimate if they must live and not only exist.

    If you want to fully appreciate the total and abject disrespect that the leaders of the Chairman Jerry John Rawlings-founded National Democratic Congress (NDC) have for Ghanaians of Northern Descent or Northern Extraction, as it were, one has to go back in history to the barbaric Rawlings-led junta of the Ghana Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) and, in particular, the deliberate and punitive facial mutilation that was inflicted on Nana Akwasi Agyeman, nephew of the late Asantehene, His M ... more

    It is being increasingly larded with heavy twists and turns, a form of state oppression in slow motion, but the Julian Assange extradition case now looks like it may well move into the middle of the year, dragged out, ironically enough, by the prosecution.

This is the biggest case of its kind, and will determine, for an era, how ... more

    As party parliamentary primaries approach in Ghana, aspirants focus on fostering a constituent-friendly view of themselves through their personal cultivation of the constituency and the use of perks of the office (if incumbent or holding a position in government) to do so.

Consequently, voters focus on what they know about their legislator ... more

    It has already been scuttled, so there is absolutely no use or need in flogging the proverbial dead horse over the December 17, 2019 Referendum on the decidedly beneficial party-oriented democratization of the process by which our local executives and community leaders are appointed or selected.

  • 6 days Good Morning Minister For Food And Agric ModernGhana -Opinion
    I have just finished consuming my fufu and tilapia soup. I did not need any money to buy anything because everything I needed was on my farm. I have a small fishpond where I planted fingerings of tilapia and they are matured for eating. As for plantain and cassava, I have enough to sustain my family even if the 1983 famine, which nearly brought the country on her knees, happens today. As I sat by my computer to compose this week 39;s article, what came to mind was to thank you, the Minister ... more
  • 6 days Why Are Our Judges So Unkind? ModernGhana -Opinion
    I don't know if it's the imported legal system that serves as a blueprint to our judges to pronounce sentencing this way, they're so unkind. Sentencing a 19-year-old girl to a ten years imprisonment for whatever reason safe murder, is disproportional, insensitive and inhumane, that could only be attributed to the night wolf who preys on Innocent feeding jungle inhabitants. It would have been reasonable if our prisons have facilities to correct social misfits , one that will make th ... more
  • 6 days If The Wicked Man ModernGhana -Opinion
    But if the wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed and keeps all My statutes and practices justice and righteousness, he shall certainly live; he shall not die. Amplified Bible Jesus Christ had to die a vicarious death for the sins of the world. His death bridged the gap between God and man. Surprisingly, some people are still in the old life 39;s. Yet God hasn 39;t given up on them. There is restitution for the wicked if he or she ... more

  • 6 days Why A Fourty Member Committee? ModernGhana -Opinion
    There is no need for long thesis and gargantuan grammar for this topic. It should be one of the easiest questions an Economics student in SHS can answer, a University student reading Economics or someone of higher learning should have answers spontaneously. It is generally known that currency depreciation is sometimes dependent on the structure of a particular economy. Broadly speaking, currency depreciation can be as a result of negative trade balance, fiscal and Monetary Policies, infl ... more

The world is expanding, characterized by deceitfulness and crime, yet great times are meaningful. January each yea ... more
  • 6 days Sissala East Must Be Guarded Against The NDC’s Message; It Is Gaining Weight ModernGhana -Opinion
    Ahead of NPP 39;s parliamentary primaries, comrades from the NDC have learned to engage in a rather diabolic propaganda which, though smart is to me gimpy. Their agenda to punch the NPP as a disunited front in the Sissala East Constituency should be disproved by the leadership of the party (NPP). In as much as they are trying through all means possible to achieve their aim of forcing the people to believe nonfactual disunity between Hon. Ridwan Abass (sitting MP) and Hon. Ami ... more

    One of the fundamentals for community development is education and it is the low literacy in rural communities that have led to the high poverty rate, high deprivation and unrealistic autocracy from a cross-section of people in our jurisdiction. It is this fact that led to sustainable development goal number 4 which entails quality education boiling down to our constitutional rights as a Ghanaian as the right to education. This is completely buttressed with the proper policy of t ... more

    All institutions, including Governments and their agencies, have the DUTY to put their case before the public. Almost all of them depend on taxes paid by the public to carry out their functions. And in order that the public should remain PERSUADED that the public must continue paying the taxes that keep the institutions afloat, the public needs a regular flow of information on what the institutions are doing; how they are doing it; what difficulties face them; and how they are surmount ... more

    The impact of godfathers in Ghana rsquo;s political space; ranging from the national to local level, poses unprecedented levels in the way leaders are elected/appointed to man various political and apolitical portfolios. The godsons are now expected to raise huge sums of money towards the cause of a godfather you so affiliated with during a contest so as to be promised and assured inclusion when elected or appointed.
