And lo and behold, there comes one Professor Samuel Ato Afful telling us what those of us who have been engaged with the academy for decades already know and have always been well aware of. AUCC, of course, is the Kojo Yankah-founded, owned and operated African University College of Communications, located in the Greater-Accra Region. What this means is that Prof. Gyampo, whose paternal grandfather, the Rev. We also learn of other targeted predators caught at the University of Lagos. *Visit my blog at: kwameokoampaahoofe.wordpress.com GhanaffairsBy Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., PhDEnglish Department, SUNY-NassauGarden City, New YorkOctober 9, 2019E-mail: [email protected]
The fact of the matter is that the notorious Chinese national did not invite herself into the country, as we all learned during the so-called Galamsey Queen’s legal run-ins with the government, prior to her quite auspicious deportation. What we critically need here is a radical change in our attitude towards our country and its rich environmental resources and the imperative need to preserve the same for our younger generations and posterity. And on the latter count also, I am referring to Mr. Owusu’s claim that he had solid evidence implicating some Akufo-Addo government officials in the predatory activities of Galamsey. You see, glibly telling patriotic citizens like Mr. Owusu to simply pass such information or evidence on to some nondescript authorities in Ghana was not very helpful. *Visit my blog at: kwameokoampaahoofe.wordpress.com GhanaffairsBy Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., PhDEnglish Department, SUNY-NassauGarden City, New YorkOctober 9, 2019E-mail: [email protected]
The Ghana Chief Justice, Mrs Sophia Akuffo, recently admonished court judges not to give tips, thus money, to senior or junior judicial staff for facilitating the payment of their allowances etc. There must be no "thank you" money paid to them for facilitating their (judges') work whenever they decide cases. I am certain most of Ghana court judges may harbour the feeling that their salary does not commensurate the amount of work they do. The judge will for real, not continue to give money to the court workers from his own meagre salary. However, he can give to the court workers money that he or she has earned illegally.
This evidently clinically troubled moral reprobate is highly unlikely to go away anytime soon; not that any of us progressive democrats really give a hoot. Indeed, it is only a politically opportunistic fanatic who would so miserably fail to recognize the uncontestable fact when it comes to the subject of diplomatic conduct and democratic decorum, Nana Akufo-Addo has absolutely no rival among his generation of Ghanaian leaders and politicians, least of all in former President John Dramani Mahama (See “The Rutgers Question: Disgrace in America!” Ghanaweb.com 10/4/19). The rather cheap and tawdry attempt to play former President John Agyekum-Kufuor against his former Chief Diplomat and Foreign Minister and, before that, his Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, will never wash. Not in this generation or the next. I would later be summarily kicked off the New Patriotic Party’s USA Communications Team and shortly thereafter jackbooted from the party altogether. *Visit my blog at: kwameokoampaahoofe.wordpress.com GhanaffairsBy Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., PhDEnglish Department, SUNY-NassauGarden City, New YorkOctober 7, 2019E-mail: [email protected]
Shocking revelation by Auditor-General Daniel Domelevo that the Ministries of Works and Housing, and the Interior together spent some GHȻ 1.5 Million on cars that were never delivered to these ministries occurred under the criminally wasteful watch of former President John Dramani Mahama, and not the current Akufo-Addo-led government of the New Patriotic Party (See “Interior, Housing Ministries Spent Ȼ 1.5 Million on Never-Delivered Cars – Auditor-General” MyJoyOnline.com / Ghanaweb.com 9/30/19). We are not given the specific number of paid-for vehicles that were never delivered to these institutional purchasers. The NPP’s Communicators must painstakingly and meticulously remind the general public that the Akufo-Addo-led government of the New Patriotic Party did not assume residency at Jubilee House until January 7, 2017. This amounted to an overpayment of some $ 8 Million (USD), which comes up to a little over 30-percent overpayment. *Visit my blog at: kwameokoampaahoofe.wordpress.com GhanaffairsBy Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jr., PhDEnglish Department, SUNY-NassauGarden City, New YorkSeptember 30, 2019E-mail: [email protected]
Mrs Ofori, who was astonished at the level of encroachment on the catchment areas of the Barekese and the Owabi dams in the Ashanti Region, said it was high time citizens resisted private developers who were posing a threat to all. According to her, the problem was not peculiar to the Ashanti Region but cuts across the whole country and said it was time the public stopped the clandestine activities of people who destroyed the environment. She said all the illegal activities were adding up to the cost of production of water, which was eventually passed on to the consumer. He said the situation was worse at Owabi, where the people had virtually taken over all the land within the buffer zone and built on it. Even though the GWCL currently produced enough water to supply consumers in the metropolis, Mr Tulasi said, the situation might change during the dry season.
