Dear GhanaWeb reader,
Election is upon us in a few days and tension is brewing between the two major political parties - the ruling NPP and the opposition NDC - who are bent on leading the country in the next four years.
Language has become an issue in this critical period of campaigning where leaders of both parties and their supporters use colourful words in the media and in public to describe each other. The use of insults is unjustified and needs to be totally kicked out of our politics for cooler heads to prevail.
The love for awards has left some Ghanaian personalities in an embarrassing situation after news emerged that a self-acclaimed Dr Kwame Owusu Fordjour’s United Nations Award scheme was indeed fake. Over the years, the suspected fraudster has awarded scores of Ghanaian personalities including entertainers, academics, politicians, media personalities among others with a certain Global Blueprint Excellence Award.
He was exposed last weekend after he organised an award ceremony in Accra which saw rappers Sarkodie and D-Black; media personalities Nathaniel Attoh, Berla Mundi and Johnnie Hughes receive the fake UN awards. It all ended in disappointment and lessons on background checks.
The Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll has been launched as we prepare to release results of the Second Wave of the poll. Click here to take part in the Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll.
Our best wishes for a positive week ahead. Please send any comments, suggestions, criticisms and ideas to editor@ghanaweb.com. You can send your news to newswires@ghanaweb.com and follow us on all social media platforms at @theghanaweb for updates throughout the day.
