The Improvement of HealthCare Delivery & Managing Its Cost Is Everyone’s Business.

Posted by Business in Ghana on July 28, 2013

By KwakuAdu-Gyamfi (Voice of Reason), Asuom, Kwaebibirem District.

Can our fragile NHIS withstand the pressure and demand of its services?

Ghanaians certainly have more choices of food than ever before. We now also have relatively more access to hospitals, clinics and medicines, and therefore should be a healthy society. But, Ghanaians’ health has been declining and our average life-span is reducing over the years.

To promote and improve on health care delivery and health wellness the people and government of Ghana need to think of healthcare system in a holistic approach, by  looking at the interrelated elements that affect the health of our people.

First, the food we consume has a major effect on our health. For example, the sugar, salt and fat content of our diets are perhaps  accelerating our speedy journey to the health facilitates and grave yard prematurely due largely in part to our blissful ignorance of what is actually killing us so sadly.

When will the Melcom Store’s disaster become a teachable moment?

Posted by Business in Ghana on November 22, 2012

Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi, Asuom, Ghana.

THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF those articles when the subject needs to be approached gingerly and with due respect for our fellow citizens’ loss, lest, I’ll be accused of ‘hardheartedness’. With that firmly  in mind I’ll  delicately go ahead and attempt to shed some much needed  light on where deep darkness have occupiedfor weeks.

 While the Melcom supermarket’s disaster has certainly tested our resilience and togetherness and our security services’ agility and the citizens’ patriotism, the nation has to be proactive and get busy—ASAP! Read the rest of this entry »

The Other Side Of Free-SHS Education Equation That You Don’t Want To See.

Posted by Business in Ghana on November 20, 2012

Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi, Asoum, Ghana

Universal SHS tuition-free education is nice but Universal access to a quality education is much better because the problems of education are not confined to tuition affordability.

FAR BE It from me to get in the middle of the Ghanaian “politiricking” (a combination of the words,”politics” and trick”) debate. But, I’d like to add my two pesewas to the tuition free-SHS education  debate because I don’t think the  proponents of it are  just pandering  to  education enthusiastic  parents…I hope not!.

The tuition – free -SHS -education is very feasible and enticing proposition, but we need to dissect it a little to see the quality of its contents, long- term financial sustainability, and effectiveness in solving some of our emerging educational and socio-economic problems in Ghana.

Ghana: A Nation Of Greedy, Evil, Dwarf Bastards

Posted by Business in Ghana on October 23, 2012

By Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi. (Voice of Reason), NJ, USA

Power concedes nothing without demand”—Fredrick Douglas.

This is extraordinary and humongous…This is a head- scratching moment!

THE YOUTH OF GHANA SHOULD arise todefend and protect the environment and the nation’s health and its resources.

Yes, the young people of this nation should be screaming from the rooftops of the Parliament House, OSU Castle, District Assemblies and Chiefs’ Palaces across the land right now; for many man -made problems that could have been avoided, or controlled and managed with simple initiatives and empathy.

The Moneycracy And Political Pimps: Who will Speak Up For Kwaebibrim District?

Posted by Business in Ghana on July 3, 2011

By Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi, Voice Of Reason

“In Germany they first came for the communists and I didn’t speak up then because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for Catholics and I didn’t speak because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me and by that time no one was left to speak up”.-Pastor M .Niemoller

Who will speak up against the MONEYcracy and political pimps?

You can’t miss them: Like the rest of the country, every election cycle  we allow political pimps of every political    kind to descend  on our  communities,  villages and towns ;and  throw a little ,money around like so much  chum or chicken feed…..but, pay scant attention  to our  basic needs , desire   and aspirations.

By Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi (Voice of Reason), NJ, USA

For Ghanaians to get real equity, please list these companies on Ghana Stock Exchange Market, anything less is just a joke.

The Jubilee House For A Museum; What Are We Smoking?

Posted by Business in Ghana on October 18, 2010

By Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi (Voice Of Reason)

Are we serious?

I’m not happy. And you shouldn’t be either.

What has me incensed is the fact that two former ministers are talking about wrong issues.

Oh lordy, our vision- impaired and ideas- deficit   politicians never cease to surprise me with their diatribes and time- consuming insinuations.

It’s beyond astonishing to me  that two former ministers  devoted their time  to stir-up  a debate –which doesn’t give the country any dividend—instead of  tackling some of our  everyday  issues .  They’re  yakking while the   plastic bags have  choked up our sewage system, schools are  mis-educating  our  children and  unemployment is stealing  our  youth’s  desires and  aspirations.

BURN, BABY BURN – NIGER DELTA GHOST!

Posted by Business in Ghana on October 17, 2010

By Kwaku Adu-Gyamfi, THE VOICE OF  REASON

ONCE UPON A TIME, the Niger Delta was calm until the oil find

Making the politicians’ bank accounts feel like fluid

Swimming in money like Tsunami flood

Eating, drinking and partying like no tomorrow

While the citizens go to bed with empty tummies

You wonder   why Delta is burning Read the rest of this entry »
