Debilitating depreciation
06 Feb 2014 | 02:21 PM
The signs were on the wall The cedi had started to fall The cedi, once appreciating the dollar The cedi, now depreciating against the dollar The dollar is scarce and the cedi is scared The free-fall laid bankrupt thinking bare Yet no one seemed to care Until the stench hit the roof Now the moment ...

Komla Dumor: Irreplaceable broadcaster, unbeatable trailblazer
23 Jan 2014 | 03:31 PM
I was never a part of Komla Dumor’s inner circle. He never called me out for a drink. And he didn’t share any secrets with me. I am just one of those guys who enjoyed the privilege of working with him. That was more than I could ever ask for. ...

10 Dec 2012 | 07:43 PM
Dear Mr. President, congratulations on your victory over Nana Akuffo-Addo in the elections of December 7. Not only am I surprised that you won but I am also quite anxious about the future of my two little toes, which I wagered that you would lose. As I write, I don’t ...

Indecision 2012: My prediction
05 Dec 2012 | 09:06 PM
The first time I came into close proximity with John Mahama, he was Communications Minister and I was graduating from the Ghana Institute of Journalism. It was a bright, sunny afternoon in August 1999. When I say “close proximity”, I mean he was on the glorified dais and I was ...

Why I haven’t been writing
04 Dec 2012 | 06:28 PM
Someone recently sent me a message on Facebook, seeking to know why I “just abandoned ship”. Let’s call her M but I will be quick to add that she’s not James Bond’s former boss, who recently died in Skyfall. This particular M is a Ghanaian who wanted me to explain ...

Frimpong-Boateng: A true Ghanaian hero
30 Aug 2011 | 10:30 AM
Dearest Prof, I have seen and heard all that is going on. I am sorry they are treating you so shabbily. But if you know these people, they are an extremely “buga-buga”, seldom thinking before acting. If they say you should go, please, don’t fight them. Leave them to their ...

Libya: The monster flees
28 Aug 2011 | 10:34 PM
“The universal pursuit of dignity and freedom is far stronger than the iron fist of a dictator.” That was how Barack Obama welcomed the entry of rebels into Libya marking what many see as the end of the brutish regime of Muamar Gaddafi. Obviously, Obama is happy that the tyrant ...

Show us thy men, Oh God
17 Aug 2011 | 10:59 AM
Dear Lord, I know you say your ways are not our ways but sometimes I can’t help but feel that you deliberately make it impossible for us to understand your ways. After all these years, don’t you think it’s about time you demystified some of the things you do? For ...

15 Aug 2011 | 11:03 AM
Information Minister, John Tia, has responded to suggestions that the information ministry should be scrapped. Obviously, he cares about his job. It’s only human. But as you can see from the following Ghana News Agency report, besides doing what anyone whose job is threatened would do, Mr. Tia just doesn’t ...

Jamal est très malade
11 Aug 2011 | 10:49 AM
There is something very wrong with deputy information minister, Baba Jamal. It could be that he suffers from a very bloated sense of his own intelligence or he thinks most Ghanaians are idiots. It’s a very serious disease and the earlier he’s cured the better for himself, his government and ...
