    Covidnomics: Ken...

    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...

    Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu has penned down his second critique of the Professor Ahwoi book – Working with Rawlings – describing it as full of errors. According to him, key details of the book are contestable while some are inaccurate “I have not read any of Kwamena Ahwoi’s previous works....

    I have avoided reading books written by my former colleagues reporting on their observations or experiences in the Governments I served with them lest some contents in the books put temptation in my path to attempt a rejoinder or critique of the book and earn the displeasure of such a...

    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. Examining the utterances of political figures ensures that leaders are held responsible for what they say and do. It also serves the purpose of preventing persons...

    John Mahama:...

    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...

    New register:...

    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. Even though the two-state institutions deny the allegations, clear data from the NIA itself from the recent citizenship (Ghana Card) registration it carried out...

    Why NPP...

    Insisting that Ghana’s electoral register is bloated with names of Togolese, Burkinabe and Ivorian citizens, commentators of New Patriotic Party (NPP) have justified the elimination of some 1,111,472 voters in the Upper East and Upper West regions, from the electoral register. The NPP commentators maintain that the current voter’s register...

    It is undoubtedly clear that the COVID-19 pandemic has made us accustomed to different ways of living even though it has brought lots of glitches to our daily lives. Such glitches include the ban on public funerals, ban on school conferences, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies, church activities, and other...

    Did EC...

    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...

    OPINION: Jean...

    Jean Adukwei Mensa, I am told I can’t vote by virtue of a New CI being laid in Parliament. I have to vote on 7th December 2020 at all cost. My vote is my RIGHT. Some of us have been registered voters since 1992 until 2016. Where did we go...

    Has Akufo-Addo...

    Nana Akufo-Addo and Jean Adukwei Mensa don’t care about Ghanaian lives. Chuku Chaka , Chuku Chaka Chuku Chaka. I hear the sound of a locomotive train from a distance that is moving slowly to 7th December 2020. Will it bump and grind to its destination safely? Over 4700 cases already?...

    Enimil Ashon:...

    As a cesspool, the foul odour Ghana exudes is now equal to or worse than Nigeria, once the most corrupt in Africa. Today, Ghana has become a “lavender hill” onto which hundreds of cesspool emptiers dump 250,000 gallons of untreated human excreta daily. The corrupt in our society are so...

    Why the...

    The absence of an effective legal mechanism at ​par with the current and dynamic trends of business, particularly in the area of corporate insolvency, fueled a lot of hostility towards the growth of private enterprises, their development and the economic wellbeing of the country as a whole. However, the promulgation...

    As Covid-19 marches relentlessly into Africa there is one man who has sat at the centre of another similarly urgent health crisis. John Mahama was President of Ghana then. The lessons he learned there and the hard political, social and economic decisions he had to make are now a foundational...

    Lockdown begins. I thought, going to work that I would see a ghost town. I did not. The traffic has definitely reduced, but there are still people on the streets. The shops are closed, or closing. The police stops are increasing. The first day, I was underwhelmed. I did not...

    The ultimate measure of a man, the late great Martin Luther King Jnr said, is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy. If this maxim is true in the lives of ordinary men, it is especially true...

    The Coronavirus scare is real! Ghana has so far confirmed 21 cases –  comprising both imported and community level infections. Unfortunately, one of the patients with an underlying health condition died on Saturday. The global figures are mind-blowing! The disease inspires fear in most Ghanaians who get to know not...

    I have read a response to my remarks about the Amendments recently made to Aker’s South Deepwater Tano (“SDWT”) and Deep Water Tano-Offshore Cape Three Points (DWT-OCP) Petroleum Agreements by the Ministry of Energy (“MoE”). The statement is issued in name of the MoE but represents the agenda not of our...

    There has been so much talk about the fight against illegal mining in the last few months. This is partly because of how concerted the effort to rid the country of the menace was. Then, in recent weeks, how apparent it seems now that the battle against illegal mining has...

    In August 2019, Toyota and Suzuki became the latest companies to formally commit to setting up car assembling plants in Ghana. This was after the Toyota Tsusho Corporation signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the government of Ghana following a March 2019 announcement. Toyota and Suzuki (of which Toyota Tsusho is...
