I took this picture (of a portion of the La township) after voting as I drove through the La-Dade-Kotopon constituency last Monday. Just like hundreds of other constituencies, the voters here queued to cast ballots so they can enjoy the very basic essentials of life.

Ghanaians are generally not sophisticated people and their demands are largely basic except for a certain 5-10%. This kind of life will flow from the passage of Laws International Agreements, Bills and others. These legislations are expected to lead to the bettering of their lives in a very efficient manner. That is why the days of ‘hear hear’ when MPs did not read, let alone scrutinize documents before their approval, should now be consigned to history.

My prayer is that members of the incoming Eighth Parliament will appreciate this fact and be solely guided by that in the consideration of everything that is brought before them in the exercise of their legislative functions.


I pray that the next Executive and Parliament will in all sincerity be guided by that wish of DrKofi Busia that,

To every GHANAIAN, a JOB; to every WORK, SECURITY; to every FAMILY, a
DECENT MEAL and a DECENT HOME; to every PERSON, EQUAL OPPORTUNITY and SOCIAL
JUSTICE; to every INDIVIDUAL, THE ESSENTIAL FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION,
FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT and ASSOCIATION, FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE OF WORSHIP; and
to all GHANAIANS, PROGRESS.

It is for these that we queue to elect governments and we expect that they will just fulfil this and over 90% of the Ghanaian people will be very happy.
God bless our homeland Ghana and make her great and strong!

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.
