Dear GhanaWeb reader,
This past week hasn’t been pleasant for the nation after losing the Member of Parliament for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah Hayford, who was shot dead by suspected armed robbers during a campaign trip. This is coupled with a series of fatal accidents that have claimed Ghanaian lives including politicians who are currently on the road fervently seeking reelection in December.
These incidents have again raised the long-standing debate on security and safety of our roads which are notoriously covered with heart-wrenching potholes and totally go dark at night due to non-functional streetlights. There are not less than five police checkpoints on the Cape Coast-Accra road at night, however, the suspected robbers who ended the life of the MP managed to carry out their operation successfully.
We are at the mercy of campaign promises that give hope every other four years after three years of heartbreaks. Development cannot be complete without an all-inclusive non-partisan national development policy framework that will be followed by every government to the letter to achieve our national goals.
Meanwhile, success in achieving goals became the hallmark of the Presbyterian Boys Secondary School, Legon (Presec) which beat Opoku Ware and Adisadel College in the finals of the 2020 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) to lift the enviable trophy for the sixth time. Congratulations!
The Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll has ended and the results would be released in piecemeal this month. However, the Fourth Wave has started and hundreds of people have already participated. Click here to take part in the Fourth Wave of the Ghana Election Poll.
