The very words (almost) that used to ring out of Bawumia’s well researched good intentions before the elections. Why are we being fed the same recommendations one year after Bawumia is now in the economic planning saddle?

Vice President - Dr Mahamudu Bawumia

When I saw the Executive Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), Professor Newman Kusi, making a presentation on ‘Ghana’s growing public debt-implications for the economy’, at a roundtable discussion last Monday, I blinked. I thought I was seeing Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as the presenter.

What is without doubt, is that Nkurunziza, the son of a Member of Parliament who was a provincial governor with royal links, has abbreviated himself, his credibility and the image of African leaders in the 21st century even further. Ghana is talking trade, not aid, this brother is talking forever.

Burundi's soccer- loving President, Pierre Nkurunziza, is born again.

I have not seen the Black Panther film and I don't plan to. Who needs Hollywood's stylised fiction about a non-existent African country when there are 54 to 56 (give or take) real and gripping national stories on this continent to marvel at?

The problem stems from the difficulty of true multidisciplinary thinking. To project well into the future, one needs to understand a vast array of disciplines, scientific and humanities-based, and deeply grasp how findings in one field impact and grow atop developments in other fields ensuring some degree of harmony in technological advancement.

Why talk of AI stealing all our jobs is like bad science fiction

The critical flaw at the heart of all visions of the “future of work” in which artificial intelligence makes most professions obsolete and drives billions out of work may be summed up in the phrase, “internal anachronism”.

In the wildest dreams of the interdicted VC and his scoundrels, they are the only persons qualified to hold public office in Ghana, which I honestly agree with. This is why 'Fool Professor' Avoke, is still the interdicted VC of UEW. There is no question about that.

The brazen denial of any wrongdoing by the interdicted Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) is likely to earn him a much longer company with Abuga Pele

Pleading guilty or accepting that one is at fault at the earlier stages of a trial, in some instances, usually attracts a lesser punishment or sentence. Even though the current litigation in the law courts involving the legally interdicted VC of UEW ('Fool Professor' Avoke), and others hasn't blossomed into a criminal trial yet, it is foreseeable that at every stage of the case, the interdicted VC will continue to live in his state of denial until a Court of Competent Jurisdiction orders that he joins Abuga Pele and Assibit to compare notes.
