THE BONKING ARCHBISHOP DR.K. OF BROADWATER FARM INTERNATIONAL

THE BONKING ARCHBISHOP DR.K. OF BROADWATER FARM INTERNATIONAL

By Nana Afrakoma Ntakrah   Life is as sweet as nectar for the shameless bonking Archbishop Dr. Kwaku of Broadwater Farm International, Tottenham, North London, UK.  His best sermons on radio and in churches are usually about bereavement.  “The lady who touched the garment of Jesus and received healing.” This is often followed by a […]

NDC piles on huge unprecedented debts, but nothing to show for it

NDC piles on huge unprecedented debts, but nothing to show for it

One of the sources of government is borrowing (domestic & external). Since independence to the year 2001, Ghana’s overall public debt stock was $7.5billion. This is what Jerry Rawlings’ NDC left for the Kufuor government.   In the year 2009, the total National Debt left by Kufour’s NPP administration was GHC9.6billion and this amount included […]

Kumasi Will Be A Big Village In 5 Years

Kumasi Will Be A Big Village In 5 Years

Kumasi Metropolis has lost credibility and can no longer be labeled as the ‘Garden City’, but a ‘City of Stores’ characterized with filth, dust and mosquitoes. It is sad to acknowledge that these depressing developments are occurring in the absence of the great minds with dedication and patriotism, which once championed the cause and destiny […]

Aliu Mahama Brings Dignity to Death

Aliu Mahama Brings Dignity to Death

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.               As one who edited both the proposals that culminated, separately, in the establishment of the John Agyekum-Kufuor and Aliu Mahama institutes, I was naturally nonplussed to learn about the death of former Vice-President Aliu Mahama. Needless to say, what I learned while editing the proposal for the Aliu […]

Afriyie-Ankrah’s Lack of Conscience Typifies NDC Political Culture

Afriyie-Ankrah’s Lack of Conscience Typifies NDC Political Culture

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.               I know that it would be absolutely pointless to call for the immediate resignation and/or summary dismissal of Mr. Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, the Campaign Coordinator for President John Dramani Mahama for the 2012 Presidential Election and the Deputy Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, and so I would […]

Re-Name Legon After J B Danquah: A Passionate Re-Appeal

Re-Name Legon After J B Danquah: A Passionate Re-Appeal

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.               The decision by the Judicial Council of Ghana, led by Chief Justice Georgina Theodora Wood, to name a court-building complex in memory of the late President John Evans Atta-Mills is rather curious, to put it mildly (See “Judiciary to Name Court Complex After Mills” Ghanaweb.com 8/1/12). And I […]

Flagstaff House as a Cemetery? No Way!

Flagstaff House as a Cemetery?  No Way!

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.  I know quite well, having fairly closely followed his pontifical and unctuous and histrionic campaign pronouncements, as well as other public statements and declarations, that the now-President John Dramani Mahama thinks very highly of himself and his relatively rarefied ranks of national presidential figures; but that, in of itself, is […]

What Readers Need to Be Told By the Reporter

What Readers Need to Be Told By the Reporter

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.               The report of a 27-year-old galamsey operator having murdered his pregnant girlfriend in the Adansi-North District of the Asante Region, left the critically-thinking reader with several unanswered questions (See “Go For Your Daughter’s Body – Murderer Tells Victim’s Father” Ghanaweb.com 7/21/12).   Among the several unanswered questions is […]

Katakyie’s Message for the Ghanaian Youth

Katakyie’s Message for the Ghanaian Youth

In recent times, news about suicides, armed robbery, ‘sakawa’ (cyber crime), serial killings, spousal murders, and marital conflicts have dominated the Ghanaian media. How could kids (seven year olds) commit suicide? How could a thief behead the owner of a coconut farm just because he had been caught red-handed; and how could a husband kill […]
