    It tragically comes as rather much too late; but at least it has brought in its sanguinary and lugubrious wake some needed closure for anxious parents who have been experiencing a lot of sleepless nights, nightmares and cold sweats for the better part of a year. No real kudos to the personnel of the very same Ghana Police Service (GPS) who took only 8 days to track down and successfully rescue the two White-Canadian young NGO volunteer women, who were not much older than the three kidnapped teen ... more

  • 3 weeks The Underground Man – Part 43 ModernGhana -Opinion
    As I am always preaching, life is in our mind first and foremost driven and made possible by our body...not by life as it surrounds us. Making the right decisions, not giving up on issues but pressing on even when standing alone in the desert creates a truly great character able to overcome any obstacles , said Joe while enjoying his vanilla and lemon ice-cream freshly made by a fake Italian ice-cream seller. These people simply mimic the Italian life-style to make money even they are purely G ... more
  • 3 weeks The Badu Kobi Meltdown – Part 3 ModernGhana -Opinion
    There is a news report widely circulating on many Ghanaian media websites in which ldquo;Prophet rdquo; Emmanuel Badu Kobi, the self-besieged founder and leader of the charismatic religious organization by the name of Glorious Wave Church International, or International Church, is said to be vowing to kill all his enemies before the close of 2019 (See ldquo;Badu Kobi Threatens to Kill His Enemies by the End of 2019 rdquo; GhPage.com / Ghanaweb.com 8/1/19).

    Democracy was forced onto us by you people here. We Africans do not know anything about it. Our independence simply came to fast. What works well for you people, Democracy, s nothing you can assume is also good for us. You white people must finally come to understand, we are Africans, not a black form of white people...we are a totally different kind of breed. Our bodies might be the same when you take the thin layer of black skin from us as underneath we are white. It is the so, so, so differe ... more
  • 3 weeks Incompetence, Recklessness, Or Both: Who Signed The Superfluous $600m Power Purchasing Agreements? ModernGhana -Opinion
    We cannot deny or hide the fact that for well over five years, dumsor regrettably crippled Ghanaian businesses under the erstwhile Mahama administration. Given the harsh socio-economic standards of living back then, it was prudent for any serious, committed and forward-thinking leader to take the necessary steps to rectify the situation at hand. Therefore, the way forward back then, was for the Mahama administration to sign Power Purchasing Agreements to augment the existing power ca ... more
  • 3 weeks Prophet Badu Kobi speech is important to Ghanaians ModernGhana -Opinion
    It took me a while to write on this topic because quiet frankly I thought the whole hullabaloo about it was unwarranted. The whole country is up in arms because one pastor who lacks intelligence, not that this is something new under the sun, has insulted women from the Ashanti, Volta and Central region. Some Ghanaians are calling for this pastor to be punished because of his opinion, which is not against Ghanaian law. For those saying that the pastor is inviting violence, hatred, tribalism and s ... more
  • 3 weeks Should A Bi-Partisan Parliamentary Enquiry Probe The Alleged Fraudulent PDS/ECG Management Contract Scandal?  ModernGhana -Opinion
    As a people, can we draw any useful lessons from the controversial U. S. Millenium Challenge Corporation 39;s-sponsored Power Distribution Services (PDS) management contract, with the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG)? Clearly, it is now obvious to many discerning Ghanaians that it is a classic case study in how not to solicit private-sector participation in the running of state-owned enterprises, with the view to making them more efficient and profitable. In the sense that to ensure ... more
  • 3 weeks Prioritize Bolga- Bawku- Pulmakom Road; Youth Activist to Government Priority! ModernGhana -Opinion
    The Bawku Municipality in the Upper East Region until renewed conflicts in the early 2000s has been the gateway for economic and commercial hub to Northern Ghana. The people of Bawku have smoked the peace pipe and are now once again the ever-loving and friendly people. From Gingande to Kpalwega; from Sabungari to Natinga; From Mognori to Manzema; one does not panic or fear the sound of a gun. The peace in the Municipality is indeed refreshing. Worryingly, the Bawku Municipality has becom ... more
  • 3 weeks The Badu Kobi Meltdown – Part 2 ModernGhana -Opinion
    In the wake of his rather ungodly preaching of pejorative ethnic stereotypes in his church, recently, during which the founder and leader of the Glorious Wave Church International disparaged Fante women as having a unique propensity towards ldquo;stupidity, rdquo; he did not explain precisely what made the Fante Woman uniquely ldquo;stupid, rdquo; and the Asante Woman ldquo;pathologically greedy, rdquo; that is, incurably greedy, Mr. Badu Kobi has come under heavy criticism. But even as I not ... more
  • 3 weeks Preventing TB is rooted in medical ethics and human rights ModernGhana -Opinion
    With quarter of world rsquo;s population infected with latent TB (not active TB disease), and in the light of scientific fact that every new case of active TB disease comes from this pool of population infected with latent TB, the writing on the wall is clear: we cannot put TB prevention on the blindspot anymore if we are to eliminate TB globally. ldquo;TB is the biggest infectious disease killer worldwide. With 10 million people with active TB disease every year and 1.6 million deaths (300, ... more
  • 3 weeks NPP Has Gained Notoriety In Signing Dubious Agreements  ModernGhana -Opinion
    It rsquo;s said that ldquo;a leopard ?? can never shed its spots rdquo;. In the same way, ldquo;NPP 39;s unquenchable appetite for signing dubious agreements that ultimately lead to the looting of state resources can never diminish . Ghanaians will recall that even during President Kuffuor rsquo;s first term precisely in 2002, Ghana was hit by unprecedented scandals i.e CNTCI $300m and IFC $1bn loans respectively. These scandalous loans were cooked by Ex-President Kuffuor ... more
