Just chanced on circulation of these two cheques as purported payment of Ibrahim Mahama’s indebtedness to the Ghana Revenue Authority. Much as it’s refreshing that that money has finally been paid, I don’t think that it is proper to have cheques of corporate entities and individuals displayed in public in this manner. 

I have noticed that for some time now, letters addressed to state officials, minutes of meetings, confidential reports, appointment letters, etc are all leaked out into the public domain. Unlike journalists and sometimes whistleblowers who mostly quote the content for their stories without necessarily publishing the documents (except dared), these latter-day party apparatchiks without any provocation whatsoever brazenly display these documents on any available media platforms as are availed to them. In most of these cases, the motive is sheer political mischief and propaganda. It’s gotten to a point where it’s now a game of who is able to throw out as many of such as possible.

This practice isn’t only unethical and backward, but also nation wrecking and must cease. How do we expect to build a nation in this manner. To anyone who has been used to undertake these so-called leaks for sheer political mischief (be they civil servants, public servants or party foot-solders), please stop… Repent! WE CAN’T BUILD GHANA WITH SUCH ATTITUDES… LET US BUILD TRUST AMONG OURSELVES AS GHANAIANS AND CHANNEL OUR ENERGIES TOWARDS SUPPORT THE GOVERNMENT TO BUILD A PROGRESSIVELY DEVELOPING NATION THAT WE ALL CAN BE PROUD OF.

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.
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.
