It is highly improbable, if not all together impossible, that the Northern Regional Minister has no knowledge of these violations at the Nakpa Naa’s palace. We wish to bring to the notice of the public and all well-meaning Ghanaians about the sad development in Bimbilla with regards to Nakpa Naa’s burial. For the avoidance of doubt, you are to desist from acts such as the installation of a regent, drumming and dancing and any related activities that have not been cleared by the Regional Security Council. The Bimbilla Naa palace, in light of the above, has reason to suspect the involvement of some government appointees who hail from the area. The culpability of the Regional Minister whose orders are being flouted as the chairman of REGSEC comes to the fore.

Feature Article of Monday, 16 October 2017Columnist: Joel Telfer JnrNational Service Personnel and matters arisingFile photoDear Sir, It's 16th October, as per NSS regulations all monthly duty forms must have been submitted by now for processing of allowances due personnel of the scheme. Service personnel hope for the second month running, this submission would carry some weight and see to it that payments due them are duly made by the end of the month. Some were posted to areas they had no ideas existed, others are serving in organizations that have no use for their degree/HND qualifications. The same batch had massive cases of reposting since organizations they were initially posted to had no space for them. This has left a lot of NSPs in a state of despair and great discomfort.
