Kotoko offers contract extension to Emmanuel Gyamfi

Reports in the media reports that Ghanaian giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko have handed in form forward Emmanuel Gyamfi a new contract extension. The pacey attacker has warmed himself to become an integral part of the Porcupine Warriors set up since joining in 2016 . His dedication and performance for the Reds since his arrival both has convinced the club's management to reward him with a new deal to keep him out of the market. Kotoko is eager to have the forward in their team and according to sources wants the player to sign an initial six months contract extension deal before negotiating a long-term deal at the end of the season. Emmanuel Gyamfi and his representatives are studying the improved deal and are yet to make a decision.

In 2016 when Afro-Jazz singer Adomaa came into the limelight with her terrific mash-up of Stonebwoy’s Baafira, the hype around her was huge with many enthusiasts touting her as the next big thing.

Fuel price increment unjustifiable – IES

A research analyst with the Institute for Energy Security Fritz Moses has described the latest fuel increment by the government as unjustifiable. According to him, the move is unnecessary, adding that citizens must be made to understand the nuances surrounding an increment before carrying out the action. Fuel has gone up by some 4.4%, a move experts say will cause an increase in transport fares thereby triggering a hike in commodity prices. Speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr, analyst Fritz Moses said “we are seeing an increment in per liter of fuel of about 4.4%  What we are saying is that an increment in the margin is unjustifiable from government and very unnecessary.” “We don’t think it’s justifiable because before you do an increment, you have to tell Ghana...
