Things have to change- Messi reacts as Barca concedes title to real

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi says "things have to change" at the club as they lost their La Liga title on the night their 30-game unbeaten home run in the league came to an end. Even a win would not have been enough for Barca, as Real Madrid beat Villarreal 2-1 to win the title. Jose Arnaiz put Osasuna ahead before Messi levelled with a free-kick. The visitors had Enric Gallego sent off for elbowing Clement Lenglet before Roberto Torres' close-range winner. Messi, who is La Liga's top scorer on 23 goals with one game to go, said: "We didn't expect to finish in this way, but it sums up the year for us. "We are a weak team who can be beaten with enough intensity and enthusiasm. "We have lost a lot of points which we shouldn't have done. We have been very inconsistent. ...

PNC’s Bernard Mornah attacks system after registering

Mr Bernard Mornah, the National chairman of the People's National Convention (PNC) has registered for a new voter’s ID card to enable him partake in the forthcoming December 7, general election. Though Mr Mornah registered successfully, he blamed the EC for gambling with people's lives. He said it was also wrong for the government to camp final year students in schools who were now contracting the Covid-19 disease while refusing their parents to visit them, but allowing the EC to register them. He said the posture of government and the EC towards handling the spread of the Covid-19 in schools would make the public conclude wrongly or rightly that it's because of votes that they were keeping the students. Mr Mornah speaking to the GNA after receiving his new voter ID card doubt...

The Electoral Commission (EC) is to conduct a mop up registration exercise for eligible students on Saturday July 18 in all Senior High Schools without registration centres.

This was in a statement issued and signed by Mrs Cassandra Twum Ampofo, the Head of Public Relations for the Ghana Education Service and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra. The statement advised political party representatives observing the voter’s registration of students not to use the campuses for partisan politics. It also urged all who would take part in the exercise to strictly observe all COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

Let’s condemn the tribalists in our midst- Togbe Afede

Togbe Afede XIV, President of the National House of Chiefs has said tribalism must be equally condemned as racism. He expressed worry over the growing tribalism in the country, and called for peace and increased opportunity for all, saying “this is not the time for anyone to claim to be better than the other.” Togbe Afede, who is the Agbogbomefia of Asogli State, disclosed this at a meeting of the Volta Region House of Chiefs in Ho. He said the recent anger meted out to systemic racism across the world must also be directed at domestic tribalism, adding that while racism was being urged on by distinctive skin colour, tribalism had no basis. “While we attack racists elsewhere, let us not forget the tribalists in our midst. It is worrying our country has never been so tribalisti...

Parliament moves motion for Private Members’ Bill

The Majority Leader, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on Thursday moved a motion in Parliament for the adoption of a proposal to enact a Private Member’s Bill (PMB). The adoption of the motion would mark a watershed in the annals of Ghana’s Parliament where a Member of Parliament (MP) who is not a minister, that is, a non-government member, can initiate a bill to the House. Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, in moving the motion for adoption, argued that Article 93(2) of the 1992 Constitution vested legislative power in Parliament and Article 103(3) in particular provided that Parliament used its committees to generate proposals for bills. Also, the combined effect of those two Articles were  that Members of Parliament (MPs) could initiate the passage of laws by submitting proposals for bills, ...
