Your Excellency,

Today, in Ghana, a woman was beaten up by a spouse or family member. She is part of the 24% of women in Ghana who are victims of domestic violence, according to UN Women. She struggled past the obstacles of silencing, shaming and stigma, to report the violence to the police. She sought medical care, and at that point, she encountered yet another obstacle.

The people of Tarkwa are suffering because of the very poor nature of the road on the outskirts of the municipal area from Tarkwa Senior High School to Wassa Agona.

Open Letter to the Ministers of Highways and Railways

As a concerned citizen of Ghana, I am compelled to draw the attention of the Minister of Highways and his ministry to the following observations.

The call for Ahmed Jinapor’s promotion to Associate Professor because his brother is a staff at the Office of the President, is as absurd as Hilda’s case.

An Open Letter to Afenyo-Markin

 Let me start by asking Afenyo-Markin this simple question: If the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni, has actually carried out a single illegality at UEW, why is Afenyo-Markin not taking the matter to court, but rather engaging in a needless and counter-productive media war? One need not even be a lawyer to go down this simple and clear route.
