My dear friend, "I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live." – George Bernard Shaw. Over the last couple of years, I’ve dedicated a bit of my time to join the struggle of helping to raise the younger generation. This has been to ensure that they are well positioned to take over the reins of this country and improve on its lot.

Back at school, one of my Quantity Surveying Lecturers remarked that, anytime a government provided infrastructure in Africa, anytime State authorities provided freebies, anytime State entities provided services, the motivation underlying the provision was most likely the inherent benefit to be derived by the entity and not necessarily the service or infrastructure being provided. Many years down the line,...
Power, it is said abhors vacuum and in all political power arrangements, it is critical that political vacuum is avoided as much as possible. If what was exhibited by our Members of Parliament last Thursday dawn in the Chamber with all the ancillary events is anything to go by, then our governance experts need to immediately set in motion systems...

Having come from the background of a general election that had witnessed a majority of either imposed candidates losing their bid...
I vividly remember how the Ghana government led by President John Agyekum Kufuor behaved in the run-up to the 2008 General Elections. The government had done so much with respect to the economy, putting in place social interventionist policies, etc and thus believed that there was no way the party was going to lose power in the medium term....
In his inauguration address delivered on January 7, 2017, President Akufo-Addo pledged to protect the public purse. He declared, “We must restore integrity in public life. State coffers are not spoils for the party that wins an election, but resources for the country’s social and economic development. I shall protect the public purse by insisting on value-for-money in all...

Being a committed Christian, I have for the better part of my adult life been inspired by the philosophy, ‘Omnibus Omnia Factus Sum’, a Latin phrase adopted from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians 9:22 where he wrote that he became all things to all men that he might save some by all means.
I have therefore, utilized all manner of approaches to help influence positive change in the attitude and orientation of our people for the overall purpose of nation building. To this, I welcome you to my blog. Enjoy my take on issues espoused through the scripts as well as my brief thoughts on issues as they play out daily and news stories on various endeavors that I may play a part in.
Feed back is always critical for improvement and I would thus appeal to you to always leave a note after reading any piece on this blog.
Welcome and enjoy browsing the pages.
