Evangelist Collins Darko, who is known by his popular Professor DJ Collins name, has sparked a controversy insisting that, reincarnation is real. In his view, when one dies and you have loopholes, you get the opportunity to come back to life and correct your mistakes. In his explanation, the award winning DJ told DJ Slash, sit-in host on the Away Bus Show that, in the olden days we had we called the law of karma. In every action, there is equal or opposite reactions. The Law of Moses was the karma. When you die and you go to Heaven you will still come back to this earth. The bible he indicated gives strong evidence to reincarnation. Using the story of John the Baptist as an example, he said, the prophet came to lay the foundation for Christ Jesus. He was later beheaded. You read the book of Malachi 4:5, it was said that, Elijah would come and pave the way for God to come (“See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.( NIV Version). ‘’What I want to state is that, when you die, your soul goes for judgement but the body rots here on earth and when you have not lived a perfect life, you are given a second chance to come and correct the wrongs,’’ he added. Elijah was a reincarnation of John the Baptist and made reference to Matthew 17:10-13 (10 The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?” 11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist. NIV Version). According to him, modern day prophets, evangelists, preachers are not teaching Christians the true reflections of the word of God. Meanwhile, Sheik Ali has disagreed with him stating that, reincarnation is not accepted in Islam because it is appointed unto man to die once and after death judgment. He has indicated that evil spirits and witches are responsible for manipulating the system to make it look as if the dead individual has returned back to life. ‘’The devil is responsible for evil manipulations. The devil uses the images of the dead and makes them appear as if they are the ones who died,’’ he added.

Chairman of the Subsidiary Legislation Committee of Parliament, Mahama Ayariga, has posited that, there is nothing to celebrate about cabinet's approval given to the Right to Information Bill (RTI). The MP for Bawku Central told Rainbow Radio’s Kwabena Agyapong that, the key thing is to commit to the passage of the bill. He also noted that the passage of the bill will be possible for passage by parliament in 4 four days under a certificate of urgency if indeed President Nana Akufo-Addo, is committed to ensuring the bill is passed into law before Parliament rises. He stressed that, parliament can pass the legislation under a certificate of urgency. It is possible. They should show enough commitment.'' He was however quick to warn that, should the amended bill fail to address corruption and help fight it, then the bill, will be meaningless. Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has announced that cabinet has approved an amended RTI bill and has forwarded same to parliament for passage. Speaking at the Norway-Ghana Business and Investment Forum in Accra on Monday, the second gentleman of the land added ‘’it is our hope that this will be an additional feather in our cup in the fight against corruption.’’ ‘’Ghana has taken cognizance of the mistakes of others. Since coming into office, President Akufo-Addo has deployed some bold initiatives aimed at curbing the corruption menace in order to assure the investing public of the safety of their investments.’’ Meanwhile, the Speaker of Parliament is advocating for the bill to consider the private sector. Commenting on that, the legislator wondered why the private sector should be forced to disclose information about their businesses. He said, what we are entitled to as citizens is about public information and not private. ‘’We are entitled to information on what our tax payers money is used for and not what a private businessman does,’’ he said. He also added that if government should award a contract to a private individual, Ghanaians should be able to have details about the number of beneficiaries of the contract.

The 2016 presidential candidate for the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), Dr. Henry Lartey, has taken a swipe at those attacking the president following the decision by National Security to evacuate shop owners and traders near his private residence. He asserted that the continuous stay of the traders and shop owners was a security threat to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Director of Operations for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Nana Ofori Owusu has said the decision by the president to compensate the traders from his own pocket was wrong. Nana Owusu believes it was an irrational decision by the president to pay from his own pocket and has hinted of a possible legal action. But Dr. Henry Lartey says there was nothing irrational about the president’s decision to pay the compensation packages from his own pocket. The agronomist said, it was a decision the president took and nobody could have stopped him because he felt for the traders. He made reference to the White House in America and the seat of government for the United Kingdom and quizzed if traders sell near these facilities. ‘’The place has been declared a security zone and so the traders could not have stayed there. Can you go and sell near the White House or the Buckingham Palace? It is not possible. The security force declared the place a security zone and so the traders had to be pushed out and through his [president’s] compassion, he has decided to compensate them from his own pocket. There is nothing wrong with that,’’ he added.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Samamiah Enterprise, Mr. Samuel Amiah, has pledge to donate 20 computers to the selected schools visited by Rainbow Radio on Monday March 19, 2018 and reported about the poor ICT infrastructure in the school. Reporters on Monday morning visited some selected schools across the country and reported about the unfortunate situation pupils and students have to go through in order to study ICT. Daniel Asuku, visited the Richard Akwei Memorial Basic school where he reported that, the size of the ICT would could be the size of a two single room joined together. According to him, the school received some 24 laptops courtesy the Ghana Education Service in collaboration with RLG in 2013. However, only three are functioning with the rest broken down. The school also has access to a portable printer that they use for other purposes. He noted that the three laptops are used to train students in the Junior Department by the ICT teacher who double as the teacher for the primary department. The primary section he revealed also shares the same three laptops and has access to Vodafone Internet services but added that, it was not wide enough. Rashid Obodai Provencal, reported from the Adabraka Presby Schools where he said, the school only have access to one laptop which the teacher uses to teach the entire school. Despite an ICT centre which also serves as a library, the school did not have a single computer but was stocked with books. Nana Yaw Adjei visited the Aplaku MA Basic Schools (comprising three separate schools) did not have access to enough computers. The population of the school is over 700 but have only 4 computers out of an original number of six donated to them under former President John Dramani Mahama., Thirty (30) students, who are preparing for the 2018 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), are facing serious challenges, he added. The second school he noted was serious because the students have not seen a computer before and the ICT teacher draws on the board to illustrate to the students when it comes to parcticals. Kwame Amoako reported from the Ojorbi DA/B Basic School in the Gomoa East District in the Central Region. The school which was under the Millennium Development Schools lacks access to computers and accessories although it has an ICT centre. The ICT teacher told him that he draws and demonstrates ICT on the chalk board due to the challenge the school was facing. The situation was not different from the Islamic Basic School in the Bolgatanga Municipality. Justice Issah Anthony who reported from the school said, the school with a population of 382 has two ICT teachers but do not have access to computers. The pupils he said have not seen a computer before and have to draw on the board to illustrate to them. According to him, the pupils see computer mouse as a crocodile that lives in water. The CEO who was listening to the show pledged to donate 20 computers to the schools that we visited. ICT he stated is important and enough investment should go into helping yo

The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC), has given a hint that they will petition the Special Prosecutor to investigate allegations of a shady crude oil transaction between the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) and an unlicensed private oil firm, BB Energy. COPEC at a press conference which was addressed by its Executive Secretary, Duncan Amoah said he deal, which cost the country a revenue loss of GHc30 million through the sale of 1.8 million barrels of crude oil to BB Energy, was avoidable. According to him, “These were avoidable losses, completely avoidable and we have said that these monies could have come to the state. BOST would need to come again. All they’ve tried to do are gymnastics…and that is the more reason we have decided as a chamber to pursue this matter to the logical conclusion through the Special Prosecutor’s office. A lot of questions remain unanswered. We released a single report and BOST have had to somersault seven times in one week.’’ “It is not surprising that BB Energy wrote two months after the shameful purchase of the crude from BOST for license from the NPA which was declined. Our checks further indicate that BB Energy as of today is still paying for the crude. They have not finished paying six months after the transaction. What we gather further is that when TOR processes the crude, BB Energy picks and makes payments to BOST. So like we’ve said earlier, what really changed is the ownership and giving of the product to BB Energy. Nothing useful, nothing purposeful, no gain ever came to Ghana as far as that crude is concerned.” “When BOST engages in these inefficient transactions that leave BOST with huge debts, it is not the BOST managing Director or anyone at BOST that is paying for it. It is the average Ghanaian who will be asked at a later day to pay it. As we speak, BOST is reeling under a debt of almost GHc900 million,” Duncan Amoah added.
