My Voltarian Friends, Don't Deny Yourself of Coming Massive Social Infrastructure
My Voltarian Friends, Don't Deny Yourself of Coming Massive Social Infrastructure Bala Ali Writes I am moved by poor infrastructural development in the Volta Region to appeal to them to justify themselves for jet propelled infrastructural development in Nana Addo's second term.

How Gizella Politely Embarrassed Ali, the Satirist Bala Ali Recounts His Experience With Gizella I received the shock of my life when I attempted to lampoon Gizella Tetteh-Agbotui, the NDC Parliamentary Candidate for Awutu Senya West Constituency.

On a more serious note, I usually take the politicians on with factual issues. With my propaganda prowess, I also undermine

The Brand, Eugene Arhin: the Way Forward for Awutu Senya West
The Brand, Eugene Arhin: the Way Forward for Awutu Senya West By Bala Ali Eugene Arhin is a clear reflection of the biblical saying that "As a man thinketh so he is."

Just as Power, Money Corrupts
Just as Power, Money Corrupts By Bala Ali My critical examination of people's attitude towards money makes me believe that it can corrupt those who chase it. I have come to hold the view that "money corrupt, plenty money corrupt absolutely." That is, my view on money is the same as Lord Acton's on power. Lord Acton, a 19th century British historian, observed that "power corrupt, absolute power corrupt absolutely. By this, he meant that a person's morality decreases as his power increases. Based on this postulation,
