THE day arrived. I was ready and nicely dressed. My feelings were all mixed up.
My inclinations leaned towards the expectation of exactly what I had prayed for. Occasionally, a thin film of doubt would rise and fly cross my mind.

DESPITE the hue and cry associated with the number of ministerial nominees President Akufo-Addo has presented to parliament for vetting, it is my firm conviction that he left out one other ministry that is critical for turning around the fortunes of Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana.

THE Fielmuo Community in the Sissala West District of the Upper West Region is appealing to the government to upgrade the local clinic to a polyclinic to cater for the health needs of the people.
BORN March 29, 1944, in Swalaba, Accra, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was raised in Accra, Ghana’s capital. His father's residence in Accra was effectively the headquarters of the country's first political party, the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), after it was formed at Saltpond on August 4, 1947.
Three of the Big Six (founding fathers of Ghana) were Nana's blood relatives: J. B. Danquah (grand uncle), William Ofori Atta (uncle) and Edward Akufo-Addo, who became the third Chief Justice and later ceremonial President of the Republic from 1970-72, was his father.

GROWING up, many of us have participated in discussions relating to sex. Besides stressing on abstinence, many adults reminded their adolescent girls of the moral and religious obligations with regards to sex.
Unfortunately, peer pressure and curiosity has led many of our youth to participate in sexual acts and the worrying trend in this regard is the use of aphrodisiacs - ‘local’ or traditional aphrodisiacs.

WOMEN are working an average of four years longer than men during their life, largely because of their greater role in housework and caring for children, the sick and elderly - according to new figures released today by ActionAid. Around the world, governments are failing to take action to deal with the causes of inequality for both women and men. This finding is part of new ActionAid research into how countries are preparing to meet the promises they made on tackling inequality in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) one year ago.
