IMANI Blasts NPP, CPP Over $10bn Korea Deal
Kofi Bentsil, a fellow of IMANI-Ghana, has lashed out at the opposition political parties particularly the New Patriotic Party for their failure to issue a statement on the controversial $10bn deal between the Ghana government and the Korea counterpart. Mr. Bentsil stated this at a forum organized by Danquah Institute in collaboration with IMANI, a policy think tank, with support from the World Bank.
Unlike Danquah Institute (DI) chief Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, I was not the least bit surprised, much less shocked, by the reported backtracking of the Ghana Real Estate Developers’ Association (GREDA) on its initial protest of the NDC-STX $10 billion scam, purportedly aimed at providing affordable housing to middle- and low-income Ghanaian citizens. I wasn’t surprised because in the published statement released by GREDA and signed by its president, Dr. Alex Tweneboah, the national realtors’ organization emphatically let on its rather capricious tentativeness towards the entire saga. In other words while, indeed, GREDA firmly agrees with the think-tank likes of the Danquah Institute and IMANI, to name just a few, as well as other thoughtful and well-meaning individuals, Dr. Tweneboah makes it patently clear in his press release that absent STX, GREDA would be left absolutely clueless in the negotiations process. What the preceding implies is that GREDA’s overriding concern has more to do with the fact that the association had not initially been invited as a junior partner to STX by the government.
Democracy and Africa’s Search for Development
The clamor for democracy all over the globe is not accidental. Those who go about such business of agitating for democratization are convinced that no society truly desirous of development can ignore democracy. The democratic experiences of the developed countries of the world lend credence to the truth of this claim. However, the reverse seems to be the case in many of the third world countries where there has been a huge golf between the anticipated gains of democracy and the reality on ground.

Akufo-Addo offers Transformational Leadership to Build a New, Industrial Economy
Ghana’s main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party, is preparing to launch its 2012 Manifesto on Saturday, August 25. But, before then, The New Statesman can reveal, exclusively, that the document lays out a detailed programme on how to transform Ghana, under “an action-oriented, transformational leader”. The NPP believes the National Democratic Congress has failed and must be changed for hope and confidence to be restored in order to move Ghana forward.
 
Making Water and Sanitation a Reality for All Africans
Dirty water and poor sanitation sicken and kill tens of thousands of people each year in Sub-Saharan Africa, and imposes a heavy economic cost on countries equal to 1.4 percent of GDP in some countries. No one should accept this situation as destiny. We can change it. Since access to potable water and sanitation was first recognized as a Millennium Development Goal in 2000, budgets for water and sanitation has grown in much of Africa. But bigger budgets and more spending have not appreciably expanded access to services in most countries.
REJECT CORRUPT POLITICIANS  –Presby Moderator urges Ghanaians
The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Right Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey, has cautioned the electorate not to make the mistake of voting to entrust their destinies and the management of the nation’s resources into the hands of corrupt leaders. Rev Prof Martey has also drawn the attention of the electorate to the fact that Ghana needs leaders who are men and women of integrity to govern the nation, and not leaders who would not care for the wellbeing of the people but rather use the resources and power of the nation to satisfy their selfish interests.
Why President Mills will be a one-term President
President John Evans Atta Mills has already made history by being the first president to face a primary challenge. It is becoming increasingly likely that he will also become the first one-term president. When he finally becomes a one-term president, the political historians will propound various theories to explain his defeat. I want to go on record as one of those who not only saw the president’s imminent defeat but also put forth seven (7) drivers of the prognosis.
Justice Atuguba Weeps For Legal Aid In Ghana
Majority of Ghanaians are practi- cally denied access to the justice sys- tem because of dire economic needs, and many suspects languish in cells and jails, some as long as 10 years for lack of legal representation. This gloomy picture was painted by Supreme Court Justice William Atuguba, Chair of the Ghana’s Legal Aid Scheme in “A conversation of Access to Justice in Africa: The ex- perience of the Legal Aid Scheme in Ghana February 21 at the Fordham University School of Law, Manhat- tan New York. He conceded that he knew very little of the Legal Aid Scheme until he assumed its chair- manship in 2010.

According to Justice Atuguba the Legal Aid Scheme, constitutionally created in 1987 to benefit citizens
