• 12 months The problem with the inclusion of Atewa mountain in the Ghana-Chinese deal [Article] CNR -Opinion
    My first ever formal Geography lessons in class started in 1960 at Abuakwa State College (ABUSCO), Kibi. I was in secondary Form One and the teacher was Mr Kwaku Darko (later Dr Kwaku Darko).

It was later Mr. Adams, our Physical Education or Sports Master, who, after getting us to jog at dawn from the school compound on the main Accra-Kumasi road towards the outskirts of Potroase near Amanfrom/Wirenkyiren, ... more
  • 12 months Farida Yusif writes: Newsstands and Newspapers aren’t ‘dead’ yet CNR -Opinion
    The first Newspaper I ever bought with my hard-earned cash, just joking, the little money my parents gave me to buy sweets and cookies in primary school so I don’t beg my colleagues for theirs, was Junior Graphic.

  • 12 months A short history of the creation of regions in Ghana CNR -Opinion
    First, there were five. And now there will be sixteen! Ghana is made up of four, somewhat disjointed, units. First, there was the Crown Colony consisting of all the coastal areas of present-day Ghana. Formal official British control of this area can be dated to the Bond of 1844 which laid the legal foundation for British colonization of the coastal areas. The Ashantis, who had been fighting a series of wars with the British for control of the coast, were finally defeated in 1896 and forced to become a Protectorate of the British Crown. The Ashantis rebelled again in 1900 ... more
