There was once a country called Ghana

Commentary, Aug 21, Ghanadot - Let's call it like we see it. Ghana is a totally dysfunctional state. Once we stop denying the reality with thin - skinned defensiveness, we will come to an accurate diagnosis and have a decent chance of repairing the damage we have done to our country.

 

We should do this because our youth will have no future and the country will implode if we don't. We owe it to so many before us, who toiled honestly and endlessly for the success of this human development enterprise called Ghana. We have squandered so many proverbial goal chances, the latest being oil, our newest resource. We have also failed to progress beyond simply being an exporter of raw materials... ............

AN OPEN LETTER to DR. KWADWO AFARI-DJAN, GHANA’s ELECTORAL COMMISSIONER
Commentary, Aug 22, Ghanadot - There are three areas that I think you can do as a service to the nation before you retire, and that is if you are not too tired and can take this one or set the ball in motion and let others continue...The first is helping get Ghana organized with street addressing system so that individuals will not only have a picture ID but also have an address system that goes with their ID. This is long overdue and every civilized nation today has a way of identifying people that can be computerized.. More

   

Mahama-Led NDC Gov’t “Suffering Seriously Under A Climate Of Corruption” - Rawlings

PeaceonLine, Aug 22, Ghanadot - Mahama-Led NDC Gov’t “Suffering Seriously Under A Climate Of Corruption” - Rawlings

An incurable critic of the John Kufuor and the John Mills administrations, his rampant outburst against these governments and others, even earned him a nickname 'Mr. Boom.'....Indeed, it has almost become a cliché that the former president will take it upon himself to always beat the anti-corruption war drums, criticize past governments save his administration for their little or no role played in the fight against the canker.
