The 2016 presidential candidate for the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), Dr. Henry Lartey, has described the yet to be sworn-in Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu as the ‘angel against corruption’.
The agronomist says some people refer to the former attorney general, as a saint but he will describe him as an angel who will stage a serious fight against corruption.
He was hopeful the citizen vigilante as he is affectionately called, will put in place the needed structures to fight corruption.
According to him, Mr. Amidu has assured the public that, he will not be interested in arresting people but put in place structures that would close the loopholes and prevent people from being corrupt.
The GCPP leader said we should not allow people to rob the state and make citizens poor when the same money could be used to develop the country.
Martin Amidu may not be able to fight corruption entirely but he is going to do something that will narrow and block the loopholes of corruption that exist at the moment, he posited.
‘’He is going to use people who will know what to do. He wouldn’t want to entertain or live with criminals. We need him to put in place the structures so when he is out of office, we can still corruption,’’ he said.
In his view, Martin Amidu has immense experience and will deliver as expected.
Dr. Lartey believes Amidu has the integrity and cannot be politically motivated or persuaded by any individual.
He commended Nana Addo for his good decision in appointing Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor because he [Amidu] is an honest person.
''You cannot influence Martin Amidu from the way I saw him. He was not persuaded in the NDC. When things were not going right, he resigned. They call him citizen vigilante because he has a sense purpose for what is right and what is wrong. And when its wrong, he will fight it...He is going to put in a situation where you don't have to come and tell him you are corrupt but he will be looking to see people who are corrupt.''
Lawyer (rtd) Nkrabea Effah Dartey, has called on the General Legal Council (GLC), to give the authority and power to various universities running law courses to graduate students in their respective schools as professional lawyers.
Speaking to Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he said the GLC should break the monopoly and take a look at the way examination is organized at the law school.
He asked, ‘’if the GLC can give University of Cape Coast, GIMPA or for that matter, a particular institution power and authority to teach law and to graduate students in law, then why can’t they allow that same institution to produce professionals in law at their own school?
‘’Why should law school be a monopoly of Makola or a particular set of people? It is a problem,’’ he said further.
He said law is a degree course and anyone with a degree course should be able to pass to become a lawyer.
He made the remarks in reaction to the 81 percent of law students failing their 2017 exams.
In his view, the failure was unacceptable and could also mean that, the questions were unrealistic and unacceptable.
He said practicing law, does not depend on paper qualification but your output. ''If I need a lawyer, I will not go to one with a Phd but someone who can defend me,'' he added.
At least,135 needy students have been awarded with a scholarship packages to enable them further their secondary and tertiary education by the office of Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South Constituency in the Upper East Region, Dr Clement Abassinab Apaak.
The Scholarship set up by the MP through his shares of the Members of Parliament Common Fund, incorporated in the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) is to complement parents efforts at providing quality education for the deprived, marginalised students in the constituency.
A total of 355 needy students applied for the MP scholarship, but the office was able to approved 135, of which 96 students drawn from various tertiary schools and 39 from the second cycles institutions across the constituency.
The beneficiaries received between 300 to 400 scholarship financial packages which is subjected to scrutiny by a five member scholarship committee set up by the MP, Dr Clement Apaak.
Dr Apaak told THE REPUBLIC, the objective of setting up the scholarship committee was to first identify the most marginalized and underprivileged students, their level of education and subject of study to help inform the office the appropriate package.
The MP said those students who had gone through their secondary education and had gained admission to tertiary institutions but without financial support would be major beneficiaries.
However, students at the tertiary level who are on government pay roll or have had some private enterprise sources of income are not eligible under the scholarship, unless the circumstance is beyond control.
This, the MP said would bring down the numbers of school drop-outs in the Builsa South communities, adding that, the award of scholarship was also to enable the constituents to acquire secular education better.
Dr Apaak who is passionate about the educational needs of the constituent further noted that, students who applied but could not receive disbursement would be prioritized in subsequent batch of scholarship .
While assuring the constituent of his resolve to improve standard of education in the Builsa South, the outspoken lawmaker also entreat parents and guardians to take interest in their children education, for education remained the backbone of development.
He however advised the beneficiaries to take their studies seriously because they have been selected among the many applicants, saying “this shows you are blessed, so work hard and you would achieve your aim.”
He further entreated the beneficiaries to make good use of the money they had received to sustain the foundation.
Officers of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) have arrested a Tanzanian woman, BasaidaZenaJafary with 2.3hk of speedball, a mixture of cocaine and heroin with street value of $ 70,000.00, a statement from NACOB has stated.
According to the statement, the suspect, ‘’Ms. ZenaJafary, a food vendor in Tanzania, arrived in Ghana recently at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) onboard Rwanda Air flight number ET 200. She was busted whilst going through arrival formalities.
The statement added: ‘’A search conducted in her check-in luggage revealed a concealment of two (2) parcels in false compartments of her luggage. The content of the parcel proved positive for narcotics substance during preliminary test conducted in her presence.
The statement continued: ‘’The suspected narcotic substance were further forwarded to the Ghana Standards Authority for confirmation, which tested positive for narcotics weighing 2.3kg.
‘’Ms. Zena on interrogation admitted ownership of the parcels, and confessed that they were given to her by one Mandanje Omari in Tanzania to be delivered to someone in Accra for undisclosed amount of money.
When arraigned before court, Ms. Zena pleaded guilty to her offence and was subsequently handed a 5 years prison sentence.
NACOB admonishes the public to desist from delivering parcels on behalf of others, as it has been the conduit for trafficking narcotic drugs,’’ it concluded.
Private legal practitioner, lawyer Captain (rtd) Nkrabea Effah Dartey says to say that 80 percent of law students failed their exams was most unacceptable.
Out of o total of 474 law students who sat for the 2017 final Bar exams at the Ghana School of Law, only 91 have passed and are qualified to be called to the Bar.
The number of students who have failed completely and would have to repeat the entire course afresh is 206, while 177 students have been referred in one or two papers.
But reacting to the figure, the lawyer said it is most unacceptable and either the questions were unrealistic or the marking scheme was poor.
He insisted the percentage of failure was unrealistic and never has the figure been recorded in the history of law school and any average student would pass if that student is serious.
The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the Ghana School of Law, has called for the examination scripts of the Ghana Law School students to be re-marked following the revelation that over 80 percent of persons who wrote the May 2017 exams failed.
The President of the school’s SRC, Sammy Gyamfi, said the results did not accurately reflect the performance of the students who sat for the exams.
He also called for the scrapping of the exams board and lecturers to be allowed to set their own questions.
Lawyer Dartey admonished the General Legal Council (GLC) to take a second look at the way an exam is organized.
He also quizzed why law school should be a monopoly when the GLC can give power and authority to schools including GIMPA, Cape Coast to run and graduate their own law professionals.
‘’Why can’t Cape Coast Law School graduate their students and pass them as lawyers?
A chartered economist, Emmanuel Amoah Darkwah, has indicated that the decision by the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS), for the establishment of a single currency will not be feasible in 2020 as proposed by member states.
Macro-economic indicators, trading within the member states he said does not have the strength to make the establishment of the common currency possible.
He also referred to fiscal deficit which he noted shouldn’t exceed 4 percent of GDP for member states who have agreed to the establishment of the common currency.
President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday said the introduction of a single currency in West Africa will, amongst others, help remove trade and monetary barriers, reduce transaction costs, boost economic activity, and raise the living standards of the peoples of the Region.
But the economist said the major question we need to ask ourselves is what major thing we are producing in Africa to establish a common currency and described the move as an ambitious one.
He stressed, none of the 16 countries can meet the criteria in establishing a common currency.
He said we have failed to improve infrastructure, trade within the member states and if we do not get the fundamentals right, we will create problems for the Monetary Union.
Regional integration efforts that required political and economic projects, fiscal discipline, combined with fiscal transparency and a regional independent Central Bank are some of the criteria for a common currency.
He added, to achieve this goal, all countries are expected to achieve a single digit inflation of 5% or less, which is a difficult task.’’
The regional economic body requires all member countries to achieve budget deficit to GDP ratios of 4% or lower before the single currency is launched, he told the host.
According to him, budget shortfalls should be 4% or less of the total market value of all goods and services produced in the respective member countries. And so the target or proposed date to launch the currency in 2020 is an ambitious project.
One sad thing he also observed was that Africa does not trade with itself.
According to the 2017 half year Economic and Monetary Corporation Programme, economic activities in ECOWAS was estimated to accelerate at 2.1 per cent in 2017 from 0.1 per cent in the preceding year.
The West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA) and WAMZ were projected at 6.8 and 1.4 per cent compared to 6.6 per cent and 0.9 per cent recorded in the previous year, while inflationary pressures had also moderated in the region.
An estimated US$4.4 million dollars outstanding funds is needed to support the implementation of the single currency Roadmap and that member countries were supposed to contribute towards its realisation.
The decision to create a single monetary zone for West Africa was reached by the heads of state of 15 member countries at a summit of the Economic Community of West African States(ECOWAS), the region's economic commission, in Lome, Togo in 1999.
All Labour Unions of Technical Universities and Polytechnics in Ghana have appealed to the president, Nana Akuffo Addo to intervene and withdraw sections of a proposed amendment laid in parliament by the Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, that seeks to amend certain sections of the acts the governs Technical Universities ( formerly Polytechnics).
At a press conference in Accra today to press home their demands, the General secretary of the Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana(TUTAG), Mr.David Worwusi Brown said the Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, laid the amendment bill before parliament for certain sections of the Technical Universities Act, 2016 Act (922) that converted Polytechnics to Technical Universities to be amended without recourse to stakeholder consultation emphasising that, certain sections of the acts if amended would among other things take away academic freedom from the Technical Universities.
According to the General Secretary, the amendment also seeks to take away the functions of the Governing Councils of the Technical Universities and subject the running of the Technical Universities to the control of National Council for Tertiary Education which does not occur in any of the Educational Institutions that were converted to Universities.
He further stressed that if the National Council for Tertiary Education is given such powers to be responsible for the internal organisation of the Technical universities, it could render the Governing Councils irrelevant. They also raised concern about the amendment seeking to categorise Technical University Teachers as Interim Employees which cannot be found anywhere in the labour acts. The Unions therefore appealed to the president to act immediately else they will advise themselves.

The NDC Member of Parliament for Bolga Central, Mr. Isaac Adongo, has said members of the umbrella family are ready to face it off in court with the ‘’prodigal son’’ Martin Amidu.
According to him, the appointment of Martin Amidu, who he referred to as ‘’super star’’ of NDC will amount to nothing because he would be working with a bunch of incompetent persons at the Attorney General’s office.
He was however quick to add that, although Amidu is a ‘’super start’’ the party have other super stars who are far better than Amidu.
Using football and the signing of footballers as an analogy, the legislator said when you sign Christiano Ronaldo who is a player with Real Madrid to Stock City- a team with average players, he will underperform.
‘’So they caME to NDC and signed one of our super stars forgetting that, for one Martin Amidu, we have thousand…But unfortunately Martin Amidu is going to work with a team of incompetent people.’’
He said, when the NDC meets Martin Amidu in court, the results would be interesting.
Martin was approved by Parliament few days ago after the Vetting Committee presented its report before the House following over seven-hour grilling of the ‘’foundation member’’ of the NDC.
The right to criticize a fellow citizen, however vigorous, cannot be defamatory of that citizen or even in contempt of court when it is kept within the limits of reasonable courtesy and good faith.
As Lord Justice Salmon said in R v Metropolitan Police Commissioner; Ex Parte Blackburn at pages 155-156:
“…The criticism here complained of, however rumbustious, however wide the mark, whether expressed in good taste or in bad taste, seems to me to be well within limits.”
It is in this spirit that I have taken comments and criticism arising from my responses to the Appointments Committee of Parliament at my approval public hearing on 13th February 2018. Since I met the President on 9th January 2018 for a nomination confirmation discussion and accepted the potential nomination for consideration for approval by Parliament, I considered myself a potential public servant and stopped my citizen’s constitutional defence activism under Article 3 of the Constitution by not responding to unconstitutional comments and criticisms about my constitutionally mandated activities. As I put it at my approval public hearing, the nomination gagged me from speaking or writing in the press as a private citizen would.
From the moment I take my oath of office, I will be a quasi-judicial officer enjoined to act impartially and independently in the execution of my duties. My voluntary acceptance to be appointed Special Prosecutor imposes upon me strict compliance with the Code of Conduct and Ethics of the legal profession in which I am viewed as an officer of the court, whether in or outside the court room while I remain in office. In view of my acceptance, there will of necessity be a change in the way I will exercise the plentitude of my cherished rights as a citizen in accordance with Article 3 of the Constitution.
Before then I wish to say my response at my approval public hearing that some of my articles are based on my perceptions and opinions does not mean that they were not based on fact or reality. An in-depth acquaintance with the Philosophy and Methods of Research will show that perceptions and opinions need not be based on conjecture or non-facts or illusion. Those learned in research methods and intelligence know that my answers were intended for the protection of my sources and collection methods giving rise to the conclusions I arrived at in my several articles on corruption and abuse of power for private gain.
Article 3 of the 1992 Constitution would be hopeless if constitutional activists could not protect their sources and collection methods of information disclosing breaches of the Constitution and suspected commission of crime, and in particular corruption offences. I could not have given facts of corruption allegations in my articles to a partisan questioner without revealing or naming my informants and other sources and collection methods as a Citizen Vigilante. Safeguards in the rule of law enable investigators and prosecutors to use intelligence and sensitive law enforcement information as evidence, in a manner that protects sources and collection methods and that maintains the suspect’s right to a fair trial. In the protection of my sources and collection methods as Citizen Vigilante under Article 3 of the Constitution, I used the words “perceptions” and “opinions” to stand for the intelligence acquired from my sources and collection methods; my perceptions and opinions were formed from real human sources and other real collection methods and therefore could not have been based on conjecture.
I am writing these parting thoughts because the hearing was widely publicized, and many viewers and readers may not be well versed in the philosophy of research, research methodology, security and intelligence studies, and conflict resolution studies. It is therefore important to dispel in the matter of the debate whether perceptions and opinions are necessarily based on only speculation, or illusion or non-reality or non-fact.
These parting thoughts are in recognition of the fact that as a quasi-judicial officer, after my appointment I will have to behave as a justice of the superior court will do and will henceforth be unable to answer to several unfounded criticisms. I would have to adhere to the admonition of Lord Atkin in delivering the judgment of the court in Ambard v Attorney General  AC 322 when he stated at page 335 that:
“The path of criticism is a public way: the wrong headed are permitted to err therein: provided that members of the public abstain from imputing motives to those taking part in the administration of justice… Justice is a cloistered virtue: she must be allowed to suffer the scrutiny and respectful, even though outspoken, comments of ordinary men.”
I will also live by the dictum of Lord Denning in R v Metropolitan Police Commissioner; Ex parte Blackburn (N0 2)  2 QB 150 at 155 where he said:
“It is the right of every man, in Parliament or out of it, in the Press or over broadcast, to make fair comment, even outspoken comment, on matters of public interest. Those who comment can deal faithfully with all that is done in a court of justice. They can say that we are mistaken, and our decisions are erroneous, whether they are subject to appeal or not. All we would ask is that those who criticize us will remember that, from the nature of our office, we cannot reply to their criticisms. We cannot enter into public controversy. Still less into political controversy. We must rely on our conduct itself to be its own vindication.
Exposed as we are to the winds of criticism, nothing which is said by this person or that, nothing which is written by this pen or that, will deter us from doing what we believe is right; nor, I would add, from saying what the occasion requires, provided that it is pertinent to the matter in hand. Silence is not an option when things are ill done.” (For the words “a court of justice” substitute the words “the Office of the Special Prosecutor”.)
There is no need for any citizen to go into exile as some are alleged to have done, or to contemplate or fear my approval and pending appointment as Special Prosecutor, so long as that citizen has not seriously violated any law worth investigating or prosecuting in the national interest under my remit. The 1992 Constitution protects every citizen from capricious exercise of discretion and I will ensure strict compliance with the letter and spirit of the 1992 Constitution in protecting the citizen’s rights and as well as any abuse of the public purse.
Former Deputy Chief of Staff under the Mahama led administration, Madam Valerie Sawyerr, has lambasted Martin Amidu, the Special Prosecutor nominee in her latest article.
The article titled ‘Bird of the Night Part 1’ took the former attorney general to the cleaners and slammed him over his responses at his vetting recently.
Read Below the full Article
Vilified even in death, Professor Mills stands taller than the vilifier!
Lied about even in death, Professor Mills stands higher than the liar!!
Indeed, he who God has blessed, no man can curse!!!
In Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’, Casca said in Act 1 Scene III
‘And yesterday the bird of the night did sit
Even at noon-day upon the marketplace
Hooting and shrieking’.
On the evening of February 13, 2018, the day of Martin Amidu’s Parliamentary vetting, I lay down to sleep. I tossed and turned! Then I prayed:
“God, the Bible says you are no respecter of persons. I know that you allow mortals to get away with so many things because of your mercy and your grace. But I also know that when the time is right in your estimation, you mesmerise and confound us with your wisdom in exposing what should be exposed for the betterment of mankind. Your will is supreme Lord – may it be done according to your wisdom knowledge and judgment.
… Because you are a God of truth, I know you will not use ‘perceptions’ to judge us … because you are a God of truth, I know that you will not use information from ‘open-source methods’ to condemn us … because you are a God of truth, I know you will not use ‘unconfirmed intelligence’ to sentence us.”
I drifted into sleep, then I heard the voice of Professor Mills from far away – illusion or reality, I cannot say – “Remind Martin Amidu that God has mastery over his soul and that he will account for all evil. Encourage him to repent before it is too late because God is still a God of grace … but judgment day will come”.
I woke up seeking answers to questions:
a. Martin, for a while now you have been saying that you fell out with President John Evans Atta Mills because he tried to prevent you from pursuing the Woyome case. On Tuesday, I heard you say that you fell out with the good Professor because of a ‘breach of trust’. Which is the truth please?
b. Martin, on Tuesday I heard you say that you made allegations about the former Attorney-General Betty Mould Iddrisu to President Atta Mills. He then arranged a meeting where she was present for you to recount your allegations. This is what you considered ‘breach of trust’ because her husband was your ‘brother’, so he should not have called you to recount your allegations in her presence. Did the wise Professor arrange that meeting so that Betty would have a chance to respond to your allegations, please?
c. Martin, one of the basic tenets of Natural Justice is the audi alteram partem rule. I know you are very much aware that this Latin phrase means ‘listen to the other side’ or ‘let the other side be heard as well’. It is the principle that no person should be judged without a fair hearing in which each party is given the opportunity to respond to the evidence against them. As a self-proclaimed Citizen Vigilante and Defender of the Constitution, do you believe in application of the rules of Natural Justice please?
d. Martin, did you think you could make such strong allegations against a fellow Minister and the learned Professor would keep them secret and strike her a blow without giving her a chance to be heard? Kindly help me understand why? Are you above the law… or is it that when you speak no one else should speak? Are you the be all and end all… the beginning and the end?
Indeed, all who knew the astute Professor knew that he did not suffer bullies and cowards lightly. You could not get away with any backstabbing allegations without him arranging a meeting between accuser and the accused. He was a man who walked the talk.
Many a time, appointees had the shock of their lives when after making allegations against others, they would be in Prof’s office when the other party would be ushered in by his ADC, and Prof would ask them to recount their allegations in the presence of the person they had accused. That was one of Prof’s ‘fair-play’ tactics. It made him unique in a vicious political environment riddled with backstabbing, petty accusations, major allegations and ‘wizardry witchcraft’.
So Prof called Betty to respond to your allegations in your presence and all of a sudden hell broke loose? There was screaming like a barn owl (Tyto Alba), shrieking like a bobcat (Lynx Rufus), wailing like a banshee (some call it Ignis Faatus), prancing around like an orangutan (Pongo Abelii/Pongo Pygmaeus), use of language and gestures unbecoming of an appointee towards a sitting President, even attempts in chimpanzee (Pan Troglodytes) style to physically assault a sitting President?
Why? Because it is against your custom for him to call the wife of your elder brother (Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu) in your presence to listen to your allegations and defend herself, even when the wife of that elder brother is the same person you were accusing of the most horrible crimes? So because of your ‘custom’ the rules of Natural Justice should be disregarded?
You are lucky that quintessential gentlemen like Mr. Bebaako Mensah and Mr. Martey Newman were the ones in the room and you know they are unwilling to break their silence. That is why you can provocatively brandish Bebaako’s name all over the place with bravado saying – ‘Ambassador to the Vatican, call him and ask him’. You are very lucky! But one day, even the quintessential gentlemen will speak. Do not push them too far!
What about the security men who had to be restrained by Mr. Newman because they burst into the room knowing the sitting President was under threat? Were they also hallucinating?
I don’t blame you Martin! You can afford to be brash and brazen when dealing with ‘nice democratic’ Presidents like Egya Atta and Baba JM. I dare you to do it to President Akufo-Addo and you will ‘see your how far’, since he has made it clear that he will ruthlessly devour anything in his path.
I will wait patiently for that day, because that day will surely come. Imagine the look of shock on your face when the President does not wait for his security personnel but he himself lands a solid punch on your ‘bofrot’… after all… All Dieeeee Be Dieeeee! Even Papa J will not be able to save you that day. Pardon me for laughing so hard. Visualising the scene tickles me pink – President AA lands solid punch on SP’s bofrot as JJ tries to separate the two. Saayooooo, onukpa b? dz?m? lo?
By the way did you know that Wikipedia lists Ghana’s ‘bofrot’ as an ‘imported doughnut product’. In Ghana, I guess we could describe it as a round ball of dough (flour, sugar, yeast, nutmeg, salt and water) deep-fried in hot oil to a golden-brown tint – crispy outside, full of dough and air inside.
So all hail the new Special Prosecutor designate! King of kings! Boss-less appointee! He who serves as deputy to an Attorney General and the Attorney-General is not his boss? He who serves as Attorney-General to a President and the President is not his boss? Even when he proclaimed himself the Shadow Vice-President he still did not have a boss?
If you are a ‘man’, tell J.J. Rawlings that he was never your boss. Please let me know the day and time so I will perch on the wall like a fly. I chuckle as I ponder whose defence I would come to. That’s a difficult one! Since I can’t make up my mind, maybe I will just ‘boot’ both sets of balls and run quickly before both turn on me, happily forgetting that they are the two wrestlers and I am simply a humble spectator… oops ‘citizen’.
The Bird of the Night is defined as a ‘nocturnal bird of prey with hawk-like beak and claws and a large head with front-facing eyes’.
In Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Ceasar’, Casca speaks to Cicero on the eve of the Ides of March describing bad omens he had witnessed – hearing an owl hooting and screeching in the middle of the day – which he considered a bad omen. Cicero dismissed Casca’s omens, insisting that natural explanations exist even when things appear to be unnatural. Later Casca met Cassius and they discussed the omens. Cassius said that the bad omens meant trouble for Julius Caesar. The Bird of Night was a warning to prepare for a tragedy that would soon befall Caesar.
Did you know that the Flammulated Owl is also known as the Psiloscops Flammeolus and the Night Hawk, Chordeiles Minor?
Papa Alamisi, at your vetting, you dodged the question about your NDC membership with dexterity. Your answer seemed to be that as a nominee for the position of Special Prosecutor, the law enjoins that you must be neutral, so you will be neutral. What exactly does that mean please? Are you still a card-bearing member of the NDC or not? Are you a card-bearing member of the NPP or not? Who are you kidding? Does President Akuffo Addo think it is acceptable to appoint a Special Prosecutor who holds a Political Party membership card?
It is a reasonable and legitimate expectation of the citizenry that the Special Prosecutor is not a card-bearing member of any Political Party in the country. Indeed, it behoves on Parliament to ensure your resignation as Political Party member before your confirmation as Special Prosecutor, instead of hiding behind the skirt of Chairman Osei Wusu.
Please do not bring up the matter of the NDC Council of Elders’ directives that no member of the NDC should engage in any public or media tango. As far as I am concerned you are no longer in a position to be a member of the NDC so the directives of the Council of Elders no longer apply to you. Unless you are saying that since you have not given up your card or officially resigned, you are still a member of the NDC. Hehehe Hehehe!
Talking about our revered Council of Elders, I sent them a complaint last year September about some persons who had flouted their directives in relation to me. In October, I received a nice letter thanking me for the mature manner in presenting the matter to them and promising that they were looking into the matter. I have not heard from them after that. NDC! NDC! NDC! The disciplinary structures of the Party must work without fear or favour, if we intend to send Mr. Promise & Fail and Mr. Arrest the Cedi into retirement in 2020.
Bird of the Night! The Great Horned Owl is known as the Bubo Virginianus. It has a repertoire of sounds, ranging from deep booming hoots to shrill shrieks.
In Ghana we call the owl Patu, Petuo, Adzexe, Vigu, Vixu, Viuk!
Hahaha! We fear not!! Holy Ghost Fire dey!!!
I am for peace!
