    It hurts to see young people offering such unquestionable support for very self-seeking, self-perpetuating, and self-aggrandizing politicians and it feels a bit elating to see a few of them, initiating a move to sustain pressure on the government to get the country fixed. If this is a genuine movement that...

    Like many Ghanaians, the events in Ejura in the Ashanti Region this week have left me shocked, saddened and greatly concerned about the present state of affairs in our country. The murder of Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed is a stain on the moral conscience of this country, as is the shooting...

    Marking the First 100 days in office is a political culture that originated from USA and many use the occasion to evaluate the performance of new Presidents.

    I have a very strong conviction that Manifesto-based campaigns will, to a large extent, determine our future elections in Ghana. Taking a cue from the happenings of the 2020 Elections, I believe that whichever party wins any future elections will be as a result that that Party was able to...

    As we approach midnight of January 6, 2021; I am reminded of Karl Marx’s famous edict: “history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” Quite fascinating to observe that the only time since the inception of the Fourth Republic that two persons were nominated for the position of Right...

    On 23rd December, Justice George Buadi, a High Court judge in Ho, granted a strange injunction to stop the gazetting of Peter Amewu as MP-elect of Hohoe. The gazetting had already taken place the previous day. So the injunction was of no effect but still an order of the court!...

    The “Unknown Unknowns” have presented today’s economic crisis, which is mainly attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic ‘a priori’ recession, unemployment, low wages, fiscal deficits etc. The effect of this global pandemic is insurmountable with similar economic weakness witnessed during the Great Depression of the 1930s, which saw the stock market...

    Dear Prof. Opoku-Agemang, You are welcome to the political space where the conducts and statements of political actors are subjected to a critical scrutiny.

    The tragedy of the Akufo-Addo administration is not only the collosal debt it has saddled Ghanaians with. It is not only the huge fiscal deficit he has created even before #COVID-19. It is not only the hundreds of projects he has abandoned causing taxpayers money to go waste. It is...

    The recent allegations against the Jean Mensa and Dr. Bossman Asare-led Electoral Commission of Ghana and Ken Attafuah’s National Identification Authority are gaining basis and evidence.

    Think of this. Every Electoral Commission Chair in Ghana since 1992 has been “in bed” with the Government in power. Fifteen seconds after the announcement of a new EC, there is a dagger at their throat, held by the Opposition. The sharp-edged murder weapon remains till elections are over and...
