  • Foresight Africa: Implementing a New U.S.-Africa Policy -

    2013 ushered in the most significant change in the United States’ Africa policy since the passing of PEPFAR 10 years ago. The unveiling of investment-focused initiatives—Power Africa and Trade Africa—reflects not just a change in how the Obama administration views the continent, but also how foreign investors have prioritized it. But policy rarely achieves its objectives without equal attention to implementation. A number of implementation barriers—old regulations and new policies working at cross-purposes, and limited on-the-ground capacity—threaten to undermine America’s new approach to the continent in 2014. If 2013 was marked by change in U.S. strategy towards Africa, 2014 will be marked by the recognition that 90 percent of the success of that strategy is implementation.

  • NPA’s 10% reduction in Petroleum Prices – “Too Little” or “Too Late”? -

    NPA’s Arrogance or Economics?

    On the eve of the New Year, 2015, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) announced a reduction in ex-pump prices of petroleum products by 10% across board. This was not without drama. Most of the headlines that followed the announcement pointed to price reduction under duress. A number of civil society organizations and political parties put pressure on NPA to reduce the prices due to reasons such as the oil price crush and relative stability in the value of the local Ghanaian currency. Some of the organizations threatened public demonstrations against NPA and the Government; a situation that was expected considering that petro-politics is a feature of petroleum pricing in most parts of the world.

  • NDC RIGGING MACHINERY IN MOTION …. as DI raises red flags over suspicious NHIS registration numbers -

    Public policy and governance think tank, the Danquah Institute has expressed grave concern about the Electoral Commission's decision to register all persons in the country who, simply, are in possession of identity cards issued by the National Health Insurance Authority.

    At a press conference organised by DI last week, a fellow of the institute, Mr. Boakye Agyarko, explained that “one of the objects of the National Health Insurance Authority” as captured on the NHIA’s website which states that “persons not resident in the country but who are on a visit to this country” can obtain NHIS cards is deeply worrying.

  • GHANA MUST WAKE UP, SHOUT FOR A NEW REGISTER AND SHAKE UP THE EC -

    FITCH Rating’s latest report on Ghana lays particular emphasis on the importance of Ghana’s democracy and stability to the country’s economic prospects. Whiles it gives a negative outlook based on how the economy is being run, Fitch makes the point that Ghana’s credit rating has not, however, fallen below ‘B’ because of the country’s “strong governance record and recent democratic history,” and that, this is “reflected in Ghana’s ability to attract foreign direct investment, which at 7% of GDP is well above that of Nigeria, Gabon, Zambia, Kenya and Angola.”

Vote NPP for better life; not because I’m a northerner – Bawumia

PDF Print E-mail

The Vice-Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, has stated that politicians who resort to the politics of divisiveness, ethnicity and sectionalism are those that have lost touch with the problems of the Ghanaian and who have no plan to make Ghanaian earn a decent living whether they live in the North, South, West or East.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia made the comments in Zangum, a community in his home constituency of Walewale in the Northern Region on Thursday.

Speaking to a highly expectant crowd in Zangum, made up of the chiefs and people of the town and various others from neighboring towns who had traversed to hear the NPP Vice-Presidential candidate for themselves, Dr Bawumia said “as the time nears for the elections, it is increasingly becoming clear that there is a big distinction between the options available for the Ghanaian people. On the side of the NPP, we have maintained a clear consistent message of transformation. We have spelt out a very clear vision of where Ghana ought to be and the steps we are going to take to get us there in the shortest possible time.

“On the other side of the divide, we have a ruling party, which after failing to deliver on its promises and mandate despite the huge resources available to it, has resorted to several desperate schemes to win our mandate again. Unfortunately, one of such schemes lately has been open propagation of division, segmentation and ethnicity. Though it’s regrettable and very unfortunate, the loudest message it sends is the fact that the NDC has lost the debate on the issues because only those who have lost the argument on the real issues affecting the Ghanaian people would seek to confine the people of the North and Ghana into negative politics which focuses on where one is from and other such trivialities,” he said.

Dr. Bawumia stressed that with relatively little to show for in terms of development and improvements in the lives of the overwhelming majority of Ghanaians despite the huge inflow of resources, it should not be hard to understand why the NDC would adopt divisive politics as a major campaign strategy.

The NPP Vice-Presidential candidate called on the people of Walewale and the Northern Region to vote massively for Nana Akufo-Addo as he was the only true leader committed to ensuring that the resources of the nation are used to make life better for all Ghanaians by investing in critical sectors like education, health and agriculture.

“I ask you to vote for Nana not because I am a northerner but because Nana and I have the vision, competence and incorruptibility necessary to solve your problems”.

Dr. Bawumia called on the people to also vote massively for the Parliamentary candidate of the New Patriotic Party in the constituency, Dr. Sagre Bambangi as well as all other Parliamentary candidates of the Party in the region.
