CPP set for transformation-Newly elected party Chair

The Convention Peoples Party (CPP) is set for transformation to challenge the current duo-political system, which has covertly established undemocratic structures inimical to the development of the country. Nana Akosua Frimponmaa Sarpong-Kumankumah, the CPP Chairperson-elect and National Leader, said the Party was on a mission to completely overhaul Ghana’s democratic system.

Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick makes U-turn over Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool transfer

Champions League-winning Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick kept the assembled media on their toes when he discussed the future of Thiago Alcantara immediately after the Bavarians' victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

The former Barcelona midfielder does still have one year left on his contract in Munich, but there has been an acceptance at the club that he will leave for quite some time now. Liverpool are the front-runners for the 29-year-old's signature, with the Premier League champions now expected to ramp up their efforts as Bayern's season comes to a ...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on Sunday said it authorized the use of blood plasma from patients who have recovered from COVID-19 as a treatment for the disease, a day after President Donald Trump blamed the agency for impeding the rollout of coronavirus vaccines and therapeutics for political reasons. The announcement from the FDA of a so-called “emergency use authorization” also comes on the eve of the Republican National Convention, where Trump will be nominated to lead his party for four more years. A day before the FDA's announcement, Trump tagged the agency's Commissioner Stephen Hahn in a tweet and said, "The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines...
