It horrifies me to hear Nkrumah fanatics like Mr. Bernard Mornah, of the People’s National Convention (PNC), make a boastful claim about how the neo-Fascist regime of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) was righteous in its virtual enslavement of democracy-loving Ghanaians and murderous prosecution of its ironic cause of continental African unification. One also wonders why Mr. Mornah has been allowed to live in Ghana and enjoy the full benefits of a democratic political culture to which he and his ideological associates have contributed zilch, even while recklessly, unconscionably, sacrilegiously and incessantly pretending as if the Danquah-imbued democratic dispensation of Ghana’s Fourth Republic was the worst thing that ever happened to our beloved nation (See “Nkrumah Should Have Shot J. B. Danquah” Ghanaweb.com 2/24/11).

The purpose of this short paper is to assess the challenge of regional unity like the East African Community (EAC) from the standpoint of pan-Africanism. We use the term ‘regional unity’, or regionalism, to refer to include both economic integration and political association. As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the second-generation East African Community, it is opportune to stand back from the dominant debates on forms of integration – common market, monetary union, fast-tracking or snail-walking of the East African Federation etc. – and ask certain core questions: What exactly is the vision, the lodestar, so to speak, of the regional project? What is its historical genesis? What are the driving forces of the project, in whose interest and for what purpose? How does the project relate to the larger global forces, and in particular, to the changing world hegemonies? It is only by asking these bigger questions that we can critically assess where we are going and chart the possible way forward. It is not my intention to enter into a debate on the merits or demerits of the forms of economic integration or the speed of political association. Rather I wish to pose the question as to whether we are asking the right questions. more >>>

The modern state of Ghana was formed in 1957 from several territorial units administered under British colonial authority. These included the Gold Coast Colony, the traditional state of Ashanti, the Northern Territories Protectorate, and the Trust Territory of British Togo land. Early nationalist movements were active primarily within the Gold Coast Colony, which had achieved some measure of indigenous participation in governmental organs by 1946. Prominent in the movement for self-government was J.B. Danquah, instrumental in the founding of the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC) in 1946 and Kwame Nkrumah, who formed the Convention People's Party (CPP) two years later.
AFRICA MONEY-Ghana's weak currency costs country dear in election year
To hike or not to hike? That is the question facing shop-owner Baldwin Goku as he weighs the prices of the Chinese electrical goods in his shop in Accra's Okaishie market. His problem is that Ghana's cedi currency has weakened during an oil-fuelled boom which is sucking in capital and consumer imports and driving up demand for dollars to pay for them. If he hikes his prices to match rising costs he loses customers. If he holds prices to keep customers he makes a loss.
