“The Results Is flawed”

Written by | August 7, 2019 | 0
2 HOURS AGO  OPINION The 2019 WASSCE results is not a true reflection of the students performance neither is it as a result of the so called interventions put in place by the Ghana Education Service. I just read an article online about GES expressing their impression about the significant improvement in this year’s WASSCE results especially in all the core subjects as compared previous years. They attributed the success to so-called measures put in place to ensure the improvements in the performance of candidates from A1 to C6. I want to state on authority that, there were leakages or examination malpractices as if it was a political agenda to let students have foreknowledge of almost every paper before they were written. As a state we have not done enough to improve our

Matters Of Retired IGP And The Deputy IGP, Is The Problem With The Contracts Or The Contractors?

Written by | October 11, 2018 | 0
David Asante-Appeatu, IGP In the actual sense, I don’t have problems with the president giving retiring police officers contracts or extension of office. I don’t have problems with that at all. It is least among my worries as far as policing is concerned. It is at the prerogative of the president to extend the tenures offices of IGPs, Deputy IGPs, COPs and other ranks that he deems fit up to 5 years and that is very constitutional and nobody can challenge that in any court of competent jurisdiction. We can only challenge the appointing authority of the president if those he has given extension of office stay beyond 5 years but for now, all the commentaries being ran are sheer hypocrisy based on personal and parochial interests. I am not interested in those spineless arguments. I also

Our Nurses and Teachers Must Be Profitably Trained for Labor Markets Abroad

Written by | October 5, 2018 | 0
The constant and tiresome run around for the retroactive payment of stipends and allowances for our nurse and teacher trainees ought to creatively inspire the government to devise profitable and productive ways of making our allied health services worthwhile professions in the country (See “Delayed Allowances: Trainee Nurses Threaten to Boycott Class[es]” CitiNewsRoom.com / Modernghana.com 10/4/18). The government and the leaders of the allied health professions in the Philippines, Cuba and elsewhere have been doing this for decades, if not generations. I am talking about the practical possibility of having some of our best trained nurses, and others in the allied health professions, contractually shipped abroad for service and/or practice in countries in dire need of these

Photo credit- Keenesata.com Move #1: Straight punch If someone is in front of you and you’ve ID’d him or her as a threat (read: you’ve used verbal communication to try to get this person out of your personal space, or his or her hands are on you), a straight punch can be very effective. Push from the ball of your foot and thrust your hip and fist forward at the same time, which will maximize your strength, says Campbell. “Really drive from the ground, and don’t let your elbow flip up; your contact area should be the pointer and middle finger knuckles, not your ring and pinky finger knuckles.” Also, keep in mind that aiming your punch for a vulnerable area—for example, your attacker’s eyes, nose, or throat—will be most effective, says Campbell.

Baba Jamal Must Not Push His Luck Too Dangerously, Else…

Baba Jamal Baba Jamal, the former National Democratic Congress’ Member of Parliament for Akyem-Akwatia, has every inalienable democratic right to harbor any sort of weird or bizarre loyalty and opinion about former President John Dramani Mahama. But the former Deputy Labor and Employment Minister has absolutely no right, whatsoever, to cavalierly presume to insult the intelligence and dignity of the indigenous people of Akwatia and Okyeman, in particular Akyem-Abuakwa (See “I’LL Defend Mahama’s Legacy with My Blood – Baba Jamal” Abusuafmonline.com / Ghanaweb.com 4/24/18). I don’t know how much Mr. Jamal thinks that his blood may be worth, but it bears sternly pointing out to him that the township and people of Akyem-Akwatia and Akyem-Abuakwa owe him and his democratically

Written by | January 15, 2018 | 0
Four people have been injured in Diisah, a community in the Northern Region after some ‘warriors’ from a neighbouring community, Wasipi, allegedly burnt down the entire community. A resident of Diisah, Bavak John, told Joy News the warriors alleged to be coming from the quarters of a rival chief invaded the community Saturday evening and perpetrated crime. Joy News’ Northern Region Correspondent, Martina Bugri, reports that due a lack of medical facilities, “local residents who are into extracting bullets from peoples’ bodies” have been contacted to remove the pellets of bullets from the bodies of the four victims. The police are still in the community but are yet to speak on the conflict. Cause of attack A long-standing chieftaincy dispute between the Gonjas and the Tampulmas
