The UK and Ireland Chairman of the National Democratic Congress has noted that the negativity of political campaigns on radio and television by the opposition National Patriotic Party has been on the rise, that it is destroying the quality of information getting to the public, that could depress voter turnout and a host of other ills.
It is not uncommon to find disaffection within a human institution. However, what is striking is when this disaffection leads to factionalism because the leadership has been adamant. At this point, damage control if not conflict resolution is mostly the preoccupation of the group to the detriment of the groupÂ’s aims and objectives. But Frank A. Clark says "If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere." He could not have said it better.
Fellow Ghanaians very often you have heard the comment, Â“He or she is a born leader?Â” There are certain characteristics found in some people that seem to naturally put them in a position where theyÂ’re looked up to as a leader
As I listen to the debates and read comments and more literature on the manifestos of the various political parties and personalities engaged in GhanaÂ’s 2012 elections, I become more convinced that the NPP has indeed succeeded in making education the front burner of discussions for the elections.
The National Democratic Congress on Thursday 4th October 2012, presented to the good people of Ghana, the 2012 Manifesto that seeks to renew the covenant the NDC as a Party has with the people of Ghana in pursuance of our common and cherished Goal of "Advancing The Better Ghana Agenda" for all.
President John Dramani Mahama on Monday swore into office Justice Yaw Appau, as the Sole Commissioner of Judgment debt. His main task is Â“to investigate the judgment debt cases the nation has been confronted withÂ” (Myjoyonline, October 8, 2012).
It is rather disheartening that education, the bedrock of development has suffered the severest experimentation in our dear nation in the bid to prepare the human resource adequately to shoulder the responsibilities of the future in the world of work and advancing the politico-socio-economic and technological advancement of our dear country.
I am at pains to come up with this letter, but I think I should still bring it up for the consideration of all concerned, with the hope that the careers of our up and coming young ones will not be unduly disturbed while they grow.
The Commonwealth Human Right Initiative (CHRI), established in 1987 by a group of Commonwealth professional Associations Â“is an independent, non-partisan, international non-governmental organization, mandated to ensure the practical realization of human rights in the countries of the CommonwealthÂ” (Baerg and Hoffmann, 2011).
The mention of small scale mining or galamsey takes everybody's mind to the southern sector of the country. But in Kue a small village situated in the Bole district of the Northern region, small scale mining over the past four years has become that nectar that has attracted beehive of activity in the hitherto quiet village.
The Herald newspaper report that at the launching of the 2012 Manifesto of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta regional capital of Ho, recently, President John Dramani Mahama dared his main political opponent to substantiate allegations linking the former Atta-Mills lieutenant to rank corruption is sheer hogwash.
Jerry Rawlings is arguably the biggest control freaking leader that the country has ever produced. I strongly believe that God will be good to Ghana by never allowing our beloved country to produce anybody that comes close to RawlingsÂ’ control freaking platform because the country may never have the kind of people who were able to put up with him for all these years.
How big an impact did Mitt Romney's performance in last week's debate have? Huge. Mr. Romney not only won the night, he changed the arc of the electionÂ—and perhaps its outcome.

Ever since Nana Akufo Addo announced his now well received and understood, election winning and agenda setting Free SHS Education Policy, which seeks to also prioritise the restructuring of GhanaÂ’s currently failed educational system, Ghanaians have been bombarded with all kinds of laughable resistance to the policy, both from the ruling government and party, the NDC.
It is quite befuddling to hear the Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, talking so tough on the canker of corruption and how he and his NPP number-two government plans to tackle the menace.
