The rampant demonstrations and agitations over appointments of MMDCEs: Who is to blame?
This year has been a challenging year to the president, his Excellency John Dramani Mahama over the appointments and rejections of MMDCEs. The question is, should these ‘foot soldiers’ be blamed for their actions even though they are becoming lawless? Should the constituency executives be blamed?

Victoria Hammah has done nothing wrong - she’s only human
Last week, I heard some people calling for the resignation of Victoria Hammah, a deputy minister of communication. Her crime, she went to a public function, could not find her speech and decided to read from her head or deliver a speech extempore. People were not happy that she made the situation public. In their words, this is immature.

Red Alert! Cleanliness is next to godliness?
The rubbish in Accra has created a truly filthy environment.

Away with these prophets of doom!!
If any war should destabilize Ghana, it won’t start from ‘afar” but from within the country, probably engendered by the senseless rabble-rousing that these men-of-God will do in collusion with their disappointed political diehards.

Ablakwa's "Comic Relief"
The fact of the matter is that the key operatives of the so-called ruling National Democratic Congress have a scaldingly hot case on their hands, which has driven President John Dramani Mahama into a screaming state of hysteria.
