“No Ko Fio” Band: Marking Time To Paradise

The typical Ghanaian has earned the philosophy of faineance. Our indolent proclivities are a palpable quantity. As one quote I came across reads, “In a society where average is exalted; genius is usually questioned and disdained.” To such punch of wisdom, I may surmise that the status quo cannot remain for a country serious about meaningful and radical development.

Did KKD Go Against His Own Morals?

We are well-trained in a country like Ghana. Most families instil cherished morals in their children from a very young age. And someone like Mr. Darkwah would be no exception. On this sound premise, it is rather unfortunate the turn of events in the last few days. Tragically, a case like this threatens to ruin a reputation that has taken years to forge in the searing anvil of life.
It is appropriate to plead using this medium that we do not become a jury when the case is yet to be decided. The firm presumption has to be that he is innocent until proven guilty. After all, a charge is not the same as a sentence.

NPP, NDC, PPP, CPP, or even DDT they are all the same in different shades of colours.

So, Kufuor and his government functionaries stole official documents too?

 

Dr. Michael J.K. BokorSometimes, I find it difficult to believe the utterances made by some public officials, particularly when such statements are good only as a demonstration of frustration or uselessness.

Rethinking University Accreditation in Ghana – The NAB Disruption at Central University College

central uniThe National Accreditation Board, according to its website, is the regulatory agency of the Ministry of Education that ensures the country’s tertiary education system continues to be responsive to a fast changing world and to make its graduates progressively competitive in the world of work.
