THE political campaign season is heating up. Pledges and promises are starting to come in thick and fast. One of those is by the New Patriotic Party. Its flag bearer has promised to set up a factory in each district, if voted into power.
We wish to draw the attention of the Police Council of Ghana and the President of the Republic of Ghana to the continuous disregard for the legal instrument of the National Accreditation Board (NAB) by no mean a person of the land than the current Inspector General of Police (IGP) (Dr.) John Kudalor and his associates.
Vice-President Amissah-Arthur is right; if short people in Ghana are having a hard time recognizing the purportedly “massive achievements” of the tall robber-barons and baronesses who run the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress’ government, very likely such “massive achievements,” as the Vice-President would falsely have Ghanaian voters pretend to exist, have yet to reach and touch the ground, or the Earth, where real Ghanaians live (See “Short People Need to be Carried to See Mahama’s Achievements – Veep Teases” MyJoyOnline.com / Modernghana.com 9/23/16).

Kayayeis (head-porters), are mostly young women and men – sometimes below 18 years, who carry loads for fellow Ghanaians, after they have finished shopping in our various markets to their destinations or, to where they can pick vehicles to their destinations.

Folks, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen is a damaged politician by virtue of the internal wranglings within the NPP and his own lack of traction. He is not a politician, which he must acknowledge and look elsewhere to remain in the public sphere. Whether by design or accident, he has lost grounds in the NPP and shouldn’t deceive himself that he will laugh at the right side of his mouth, probably after Akufo-Addo has faded away.
The flagbearer of the NPP for elections 2016, Nana Akufo-Addo, is reported to have said on his campaign tour of the Northern region that "the NDC will steal my ideas." It is only fair that this statement is subjected to a small fact check, so as to see who is stealing the ideas of the other.
As at the time of writing this article, Ghana has 98 days left to go to the polls to either retain President John Mahama or elect the next President to rule the country for the next four years.
