Campaign Waiver. Critical News, 22nd July 2012

I am weary this week.  The Woyome case is not moving at an adequate pace, and because I am hoping that some big names will be dropped so we can move the democracy process ahead, I am weary with the slowly developing case.  The Supreme Court is also yet to fix a date to hear Martin Amidu’s challenge on the illegality of the case (Woyome) and it looks like we are heading for a limp Parliamentary recess.  Parliament rises next week, due back in October, and we do not have too many calendar days to voting day.  I love it when Parliament recesses with mega issues to close the year so when the Minority in Parliament created a big palaver this week to do with a Constitutional Instrument regarding the creation of 45 new districts, I kind of perked up a bit.  But I am weary.  Water issues, electricity dom so, dom so, judgment debt here today, challenged tomorrow?  I am feeling the grind of non-deliverables.

Belling the “Debt” Cat. Critical News, 15th July 2012

Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi still has a lot to say.  He has said a lot in the past, but now seems the time for him to sing his swan song.  After Mr. Fergusson Darko made it to the Daily Guide newspaper to reveal how African Automobile Limited (AAL) short-changed the country in the 1980s, for Pajero cars, under an investigation panel chaired by the Professor, you must ask the question, “how did it come about that the same Prof. went ahead decades later and awarded an identical contract to AAL?”  I needs to know Prof., which way bloweth the wind in your house?

Tango With Kumbuor, Critical News, 17th June 2012

This has been a difficult week.  Not for me, but for Koku, Betty, Agbesi, Benjamin, Paa kwesi, (the Amissah Arthur version), Fritz and Togbega Gaabusu of the Gbi Traditional Council.  Togbe Sri and the rest of the Awomefia arrived too late to save the ransacking, stealing of regalia and fighting between the Muslim community and the Indigenes of Hohoe.

I am not sure whether we have an ethnic scuffle or a religious war in Hohoe.  Someone or persons exhumed the body of the Imam and triggered a humanitarian crisis for more than 6,000 people who fled Hohoe.  The retaliations have continued throughout the week and suddenly we are not sure whether our religious and ethnic balance is tilting off center.

Critical News, 15th August 2010

Posted by Business in Ghana on August 15, 2010

We are probably as close to a Constitutional crisis as we are going to get.  The Constitutional Review Committee is going around Ghana soliciting views for amendments to the 1992 constitution. We all know the real reason is to see how we can either continue to entrench or remove the transitional provisions granting immunity to PNDC coup makers and their supporters.  We are just going to spend $1.2 billion doing so.  If we fail to remove the provisions, we don’t get another crack at it for a long time.
