  • Our penchant to give it all to God is a phenomenon that does not lend anything to proper scrutiny.

    Ghana has introduced a new phraseology into medical practice - the ‘no bed’ syndrome. The syndrome does not exist anywhere, not in any textbook of medicine or nursing so where from this that has resulted in the setting up of committees of the Ghana Health Service and Parliament? What have beds got to do with anything?

  • In prehistoric times, such persons roamed the whole world until various civilisations put up rules and regulations governing the keeping of livestock.

    Written By Prof. Agyeman Badu Akosa - Why should it get to killing of innocent Ghanaian farmers, raping of farmers’ wives and children and wanton destruction of people's livelihoods, all in the name of finding pasture? Nomads are persons who have no settlements and move from place to place, usually alongside their livestock in search of good pasture and water.

  • Let me refresh everyone's memory. NHIS was created to replace the 15 per cent cash and carry contribution to the health budget and not to pay for the entire service. The latter has put incredible strain on the account.

    Written by Prof. Agyeman Badu Akosa - Health financing is not cheap and as a country, we must confront the issue of looking after the health of all Ghanaians with boldness, creativity and innovation.

  • Many Ghanaian pensioners do not survive more than five years post-retirement. Many are dead from poverty and misery and this includes middle class persons, yet elsewhere pensioners have become the new group to be wooed. Most of them through flexible home mortgages are able to acquire their homes early in their careers and finish paying for the house before they are 55 or 60 years old.

    Written By Prof. Agyeman Badu Akosa - Ghana is now 60 and attained its own retirement age on March 6, 2017. She would have received a letter indicating she was to retire about six months ago and would have gone through Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) processes to begin the working out of Ghana's Pension.

  • Ghana's renaissance can rely on its professionals being professionals and serving once again as the eyes and ears of the society. We owe it to our country and to ourselves.

    Ghana suffers from poor professionalism across the board and all is, very recent. Men and women of the professional class in Ghana as late as the 1970s stood up for their beliefs and many suffered and some paid the ultimate price for it during the military eras.

  • The IGP's attribution to the Commission that the security breaches and violence was due to the lack of coordination and collaboration between the Ghana Police Service and the National Security Council of which he is a member baffles me.

    Proceedings of the Emile Short Commission of Enquiry into the Ayawaso West Wugon by-election violence is what has precipitated this article.
