Kevin Taylor on fire sends a strong message to Former President Kufour

True my brother. If this man who has ruled Ghana before will talk like this, Ghana is a broken rotten egg. What did he do when he was a president of Ghana? If what he is calling rush development like Akosombo Dam and others were not in place before he became president what will depend on when he was a president?

Why was Nkrumah overthrown in 1966 ?

Under the leadership of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, the Gold Coast has gained its independence with a new name known as Ghana. At the day of independence in 1957, Dr Kwame Nkrumah triggered the fact that the independence of Ghana remains meaningless without the total liberation of the whole Africa. By this language move, Nkrumah he inspired the rest of the African continent to attain independence. He also triggered gigantic developments like Akosombo Dam and the rising up of Tema as a modern industrial city.

The Simplest Way To Solve Ghana's Sporadic Power Cuts (Dumsor)

In my opinion, the Dumsor problem Ghana now faces is caused by mismanagement.When Ghana's population begun to rise, our leaders did not add enough power to the already existing power source.It is no hidden secret that the power sector generates lots of money and it is one the sectors with the highest paid jobs and so funding it would not have caused any harm or difficulty until now.

Is National Policy Not Worth Trying Than Trusting Party Manifestos?

Politics is and has become a major ingredients in our lives and day to day actions whether we like it or not, whether we are interested in it or not. The names we call it does not matter; people call the dirty game, business for cheaters but whatever name we might call it and how corrupt we think it is, politics affects us directly and indirectly wherever we find ourselves.

Check Out The Cost of Akosombo Dam In The Volta Region

Our visit to Akosombo Dam was eye-opening. It’s amazing what humans can do when really determined. But it’s equally amazing how careless humans can be about their actions. Creating a massive lake is certainly a formidable achievement! And creating that massive lake without really weighing the potential consequences… well, that’s just human. Before visiting, we had thought that, sure, constructing the world’s largest reservoir is a dangerous thing. But at least they’re bringing power to the people!
