TOWARDS 2016, ISSUES MUST LEAD.

Stephen Kwabena Attuh This piece would focus on a litany of issues. As a writer, I would seek to bring the perspective on the issues I would raise based on facts and figures where appropriate for the appreciation of all of you.

Achievements of the “Incompetent” President

Mensah Dekportor, the writer Dr. Bawumia and a host of NPP officials have recently resorted to negative and insulting language in their references to President Mahama as their main political message to Ghanaians going into election 2016.

SO WHO REALLY KILLED YOUR EX WIFE, OBAA YAA NKANSAH DWAMENA ?

My attention has been drawn to what was "supposed" to be a response to the publication in the Daily post Newspaper on the January 27, 2016 edition which accused you of murdering your late wife. 

ADMINISTERING A POLITICAL PARTY: THE LEGACY OF JOHNSON ASIEDU NKETIA

 One does not need to extol the strengths and influence of Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress on the Ghanaian political scene. He simply know his stuff and the public recognises that without hesitation.

Manasseh Azuri is disgrace to journalism

 For a while now I decided to ignore your posts, mainly because of the singular reason that you have the tendency to generalise without basis and to project your opinion as though it is scientific.

BAWUMIA IS BECOMING A DISGRACE TO NORTHERNERS

 We wish to register our displeasure on the consistent immoral and alien attitude of Dr Bawumia to Ghanaians with the intention of scoring  cheap political points at the expense of the masses and integrity.

MANAGING AN ECONOMY

 Well, as a matter of principle, I would want to discuss the issue of managing an economy from a principled point of view; and from managing a home, to the larger picture of a government managing a national economy.

A MESSAGE FOR ALL COMRADES

 Since this is my major piece for the year 2016, let me take the opportunity to wish all of you a happy and a more prosperous new year. We were graced to have made it to this year.

Power minister to be christened Dr Kwabena Dumkor

 For over 3 years it has been the bread and butter of the opposition NPP party. They have haunted and taunted the NDC government and his excellency president John Mahama in particular with many invectives including corrupt, visionless, clueless, useless, dumsor president, and a number of others that are not printable. People have used the power crises to ridicule government and the president.

CORRUPTION INEVITABLE IN POLITICS?

 Many research findings  on corruption give  impression the world is populated by two types of people the 'standers' and the 'greasers'. The 'standers' are of the view that corruption is obstacle to development, while the 'greasers' believe that corruption can( in some cases) bring about or accelerate development.

Green Book Dazzles NPP

 The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been thrown into a state of confusion since the John Dramani Mahama administration unveiled its “Accounting to the People” publication chronologically cataloguing the countless development projects embarked upon by his government.

ARE WE MEASURING REALISTICALLY?

A FOCUS ON PUBLIC SAFETY

NDC Colours Issues of safety must be issues of great concern to developing nations. As nations that are in search of development, they open up their economies to all forms of development proposals some of which are detrimental to the nations. 

Peter Oti stops Akufo Addo in London

 On Akufo Addo's cheduled medical treatments visits to London recently he was taken by a member of NDC UK Chapter Mr Peter Oti. 

He was at a cover-up function organised to raise money for Akufo Addo's medical treatments in The UK. Akufo Addo's dangerouse leadership of the main opposition which has raised the security temprature in the counttry, prompted him to go out and protest against the man said to be the most tribalist leader in Ghana's political history.

Lying in the NPP

Lying in the NPP:

AND THE NDC HAS DECIDED

 In my piece last week, I commended the NDC for taking giant steps to expand its electoral college to ensure the grassroot take hold of decisions on their representatives in general elections.

INCOMPETENT MAHAMA? MAHAMA?

 I haven been thinking. I thought ignoring the invectives of the NPP is the best at this time. But, thinking over and over again, I have resolved to outline what they know as incompetence and what they projected to us as competence over their 8-year rule.

Another Precious And Innocent Life In The NPP Is Gone.

 I don’t know but it’s possible that Abubakr Mohammed, a 30 year old boy resident of Asawasi in Kumasi, might have read my last article I published about the troubles in the NPP and had brushed it off as nonsense. Today, he is not amongst the living. As you read this article and an NPP member, you might also brush it off but be careful you don’t suffer the same fate as Abubakr Mohammed. In the NPP now, no one knows who will be next, because the problems that caused the death of Mohammed still persist.

It Is Either A New Voters Register Or War. Nothing In-between.

 It is very unfortunate that the NPP is gradually making the issue for a new voters register an “all die be die” matter. From the pronouncements by the flag bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, to some “small fishes” in the party, it is beginning to look like it is either a new voters register or war. They think Ghana does not have any other choice or alternative. But should it be so?

Some People Are Not Telling Nana Akufo-Addo The Truth

 I listened to Nana Akufo-Addo made statements and promises on his just ended “Rise and Build” Tour and I can say on authority that some people are not telling him the truth. For example, Nana Akufo Addo was quoted as saying in Kumasi that in the 2000 elections, then-candidate Kuffour achieved some 72% in the 1st round. In the 2nd round, he achieved 79.5%, which round off to 80%. This means victory for him and victory for the NPP. Let us (NPP) understand that 80% of the popular vote in Ashanti must come to us and he is the next President of Ghana.

Do We Know Why Nana Akufo Addo Got 47.74% Votes In 2012?

 Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party got 47.74% votes in 2012 during the Presidential elections. Do we sincerely know why? This same person got 49.53% votes in 2008. Has anybody in the NPP done any proper analysis to know why the votes went down from 49.53% to 47.74% between 2008 and 2012? Or do we still blame Dr. Afari-Gyan and the biometric voters register?

SOCIAL MEDIA NEVER ANSWERS ALL.

 The more people make frantic efforts to evolve in the sphere of technology in providing easy access to information across the world to the billions of people, the more it appears morality and culturally acceptable behaviours are thrown away.

RESTORING OUR VALUES FOR A BETTER SOCIETY

 Gone were the days when one could bring to order, a miscreant behavior of another's child. 

ARE WE SAFE?

 In putting this piece together, I viewed the developments from the Aburi area just from behind the Kemp Methodist Junior High School. Indeed, this is not the first. My observation had gone adjacent  the Peduase Lodge as well as far behind the Hillbury hotel. 

RIGHTS UNDER A DEMOCRACY

 It is important to understand how the electoral commission operates. This is an independent body and a creating by the 1992 Constituency of Ghana. As a matter of fact, the body is given the powers that immune it from the control of any person or group of persons.

FOUNDER'S DAY MESSAGE FROM KWAME NKRUMAH INSPIRED CITIZENS MOVEMENT

 We wish to extend our warm embrace to the people of Ghana across the length and breadth of the country and to all Ghanaians living abroad as well as to all Pan-Africanists across the globe.

EDUCATION AND POLITICS

 Over the years, the educational landscape in Ghana had changed from one system to the other. The Middle School system had given way to Jenior Secondary School which later gave way to Jenior High School.

ARE WE LIVING OUR RESPONSIBILITIES?

 I have observed over the years the attitude with which some people entrusted with positions of responsibility have discharged their responsibilities without any sense of urgency.

THE UNEASINESS OF LOSING AN ELECTION

 Over the years, elections have been fought internally and externally. While a section approached the elections with joy, others approached such elections with much pain.
