Business News of Saturday, 21 October 2017Source: www.ghanaweb.comLet's portray Ghana well to the outside world - Lucy Quistplay videoLucy Quist, Co-Founder of Executive Women Network (EWN)Co-Founder of Executive Women Network (EWN), a non-governmental group, Lucy Quist has admonished women and entrepreneurs to be people of high integrity as it influences the perception of foreigners about the country. “Somebody may meet me as the only Ghanaian they will ever meet in their lifetime and what they think of me is going to set their view about brand Ghana forever everything else will add to that or take away from it,” she said. Speaking at the EWN annual conference Thursday, October 20, 2017 at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra on the theme, “Rebranding Ghana to drive business growth: The perspective of women leaders”, the former Airtel Ghana CEO said the negative tag given to Ghanaian citizens affects Ghana brand. According to her, Ghanaians have been branded by the outside world as people who lack integrity because citizens themselves keep labelling each other as corrupt.

Feature Article of Saturday, 21 October 2017Columnist: Kwame Okoampa-AhoofeIs Spio-Garbrah’s wife even a Ghanaian citizen? It is very interesting to observe here that Mr. Spio-Garbrah is not even married to a bona fide Ghanaian woman with an organic Ghanaian citizenship. What this means is that even if he were elected President of Ghana, Mr. Spio-Garbrah’s First Lady would not have been able to vote in the very election in which her husband had contested for the presidency. You see, Mr. Spio-Garbrah cannot eat his proverbial cake and have it, too. The NDC operatives have absolutely nothing worthwhile to brag about, thus Mr. Spio-Garbrah’s silly resort to the benighted politics of the tribal-baiting of his ideological and moral superiors of the ruling New Patriotic Party.
