Gamal Nkrumah Is Irrelevant To Ghanaian Politics

Gamal Nkrumah Is Irrelevant To Ghanaian Politics

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D. Naturally, I read the article titled “Nkrumah’s Son Slams Nana Addo” (See Ghanaweb.com 6/30/12) with utmost contempt. First of all, while he vainly copycatted the statally planned economic strategy of the erstwhile Soviet Union (USSR), i.e. the so-called Seven-Year Development Plan, in reality, President Nkrumah’s attempt to industrialize Ghana’s economy […]

The Arrogance of President Atta-Mills

The Arrogance of President Atta-Mills

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D. It is called “Canine Humility” and its original Akan/Twi translation is “kraman ahoberase.” It is the kind of Machiavellian Humility that is strictly and invariably tailored towards the flash achievement of narrow and transient goals. And because it is not a critter and/or organism of civilized society, it sports the […]

Editorial: What is this Government Communications Team?

Editorial: What is this Government Communications Team?

What is this thing they call Government Communications Team? It is beginning to look like a creation that has no place in the Constitution of the Land, but is rapidly replacing the Ministry of Information and its Information Services Department (ISD), through the back door.

Why Rawlings Must Not Campaign For Mills

Why Rawlings Must Not Campaign For Mills

The frantic efforts by some Ewe chiefs and some prominent members of the NDC trying to reconcile the ex-President Jerry John Rawlings and his protégée, President Attah Mills, will be fruitless.  If Rawlings is a man of principles, he should not entertain any delegation from anywhere on this planet to his residence, whose only aim […]

Let’s leave Rawlings alone to thrive on risks, not peace…

Let’s leave Rawlings alone to thrive on risks, not peace…

It is disgraceful that the strained relationship between former President Rawlings, on the one hand, and incumbent President Mills and former President Kufuor, on the other hand, persists and continues to dominate public discourse because it hasn’t yet been resolved amicably.

How Can Akufo-Addo Even “Shockingly” Endorse Prof. Doo-Little, the Insult- Supervisor, Mr. Bature?

How Can Akufo-Addo Even “Shockingly” Endorse Prof. Doo-Little, the Insult- Supervisor, Mr. Bature?

By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.               In its giddy desperation to hang onto power by hook and/or crook, the Mills-led National Democratic Congress government appears to have hired unconscionable mercenaries like Alhaji Iddrisu “How-Much-Did-Woyome-Give-You” Bature, the notorious pathological liar and editor-publisher of the Al-Hajj newspaper, to mislead their readers by the use of sophistry […]

Ludwig Hlodze Is a Mentally Retarded Comedian By Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., Ph.D.               For those of our readers who may not quite remember the National Youth Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress, Mr. Ludwig Akpene Hlodze is the rambunctious young rascal whom former President Jerry John Rawlings accused, within weeks after the election […]
