IS GHANA SET TO JOIN THE OTHER COUNTRIES WITH FEMALE LEADERS?


In the news, the former First Lady of Ghana and wife of former Ghana President Jerry John Rawlings has been cleared by the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana to run for the 2016 General elections in December. She is the Flag Bearer of the Opposition Party National Democratic Party (NDP) and she has declared to be the First Female President in Ghana.

The EC of Ghana has cleared six Political Parties to contest in the December Polls and they include; the NPP, NDC, CPP, PPP, NDP, PNC and Independent Candidate Jacob Osei Yeboah. 

Does she have the Political Experience and Will Power to be Ghana's President? 

 Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings came into the Political Scene when her husband became Ghana's Head of State in 1979. She was First Lady of Ghana for 19 years and had strong political influence during those years. This is not the first time that she had an eye for the Presidency. In 2009 during the second term of President John Atta Mills she was the First Vice Chairperson of the National Democratic Congress. She contested to be her Party's Flag Bearer but lost to John Atta Mills in 2011. 

She has been the President of 31st December Women Movement (31st DWM) based in Accra Ghana since 1982 till date. The Mission of 31st DWM is to empower women in all areas of human and national development to enable women make informed choices. She is the most politically exposed Ghanaian and one who is never intimidated.  

Globally, Women and becoming Political Popular and Strong-Willed. The whole World just witnessed a strong battle for the White House between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump. If Ghana is ready to join the rest of the World to elect her first Ghana President the I think it is a welcomed development. 

What is her Motivation? 
Is it about Good Leadership or about being the First Female President of Ghana?
Will Ghanaian Vote her in?
Won't she be a recycled Politicians (Like the case of Hilary Clinton)?
Is it not time the Younger generation take up Leadership Position? 
We are watching to see her join the rest of the World's Female Leaders as shown below;

We wish her the best of lucks in her campaign and in the polls!

FALLEN

Our Land was pure. The grass was green. Our Water was clean. The leaves could cure. We drank from the stream With leaves bridged to the rock as cups. As we laved our body under the heavy drops, Our body needed no cream. We were at peace The Palm wine tasted like honey. The village square was our group chat. Words were strong and laughter from the heart. Love was not bought with money. Our Farms yielded with interest. We had enough to eat and ship. Our eyes are closed when we sleep. We worked, worked and had our rest. We were not at war Our Merchants traveled South, West and North. With products of trade for exchange of coins. Women were married not just for groins. Deals were made, no one was fought. Then came the experts with hats and guns. They took our lands and made us Roomers. They deceived our neighbors and made us brothers. Our rights were taken and we became their puns. We were just neighbours They joined No

HOW THEY ALMOST WASTED MY LIFE IN LAGOS

This thing called life. On this edition of Everyday People I am talking about the story of a young life that would have been carelessly truncated. But God saved his Unique Life. Yes! This Life is Unique! It is Unique because of you. There is no other you. No where in this whole life. Yes Uniqueness. That’s what I am talking about? What makes a life unique is what the individual is. What attracts people or a market to you is that niche that distinguishes you from others. What is your unique selling point (USP)? There must be something you should be known for. I don’t know what it is but you have to think about it and create that uniqueness for yourself. What are you ready to be known for? What did Jesus die for? What did the apostles of old die for? What did Martin Luther die for? What did Ghandi die for? What did Idahosa die for? What is Adeboye living for? What does Oyedepo exist for? What is Kumuyi preaching for? The list is endless. What is Dr. Omalu sacrificing for

OPERATION SAVE OUR DISPENSARY

THE RENOVATED SCHOOL DISPENSARY So, we all left FGC Okigwe in 2000. Wow! That was 16 years ago! We were known as the Millennium Set. The Y2K Set.  16 Years down the line we have seen other sets hold Reunions and Parties and nothing for our Set due to the mindset that we were not united. Although, we had been meeting each other in tranches and batches at various Universities, Cities, Countries and everywhere. Of course, clicks maintained their clicks, friends maintained their friendships and people also went different ways. With the advent of cellular phones and social media (especially Facebook), hooking up became less difficult. As we began to reconnect among ourselves through the various FGC Okigwe Groups and Pages on Facebook, memories began to rewind and flashbacks became real.  The major consequences of these Flashbacks were a mixture of anger, revenge and “yabbings” that resulted from the numerous punishments, extortion, heart-breaks and what have you that hap
