Ghana: Presidential Politics and the Future of Country -

Okyere BonnaAccra

It must be recalled that on December 23, 2007, Akufo-Addo was elected as the NPP's 2008 presidential campaigner at a political party congress, receiving 47.96% of valid ballots (1,096 votes).

Although he drop short of the needed 50%, the second-place candidate, Toilet Alan Kyeremanten, conceded licking and backed Akufo-Addo. He was chosen from among 17 other competent aspiriants to be nominated as the presidential campaigner of the government NPP.

According to a communiqué issued by NPP Elections 2008, the political campaign squad dwells of eight Chairpersons of Specialized Committees of the political party namely: Dr Chester A. Arthur Jack Kennedy in-Charge of Communications; Mr. Dan Botwe in-charge of Electoral Affairs; Mr. Hackman Owusu-Agyeman, Fund Raising; Mr. Alan Kyeremanten in-charge of Identifiable Groups; Dr Kwame Addo-Kufuor in-charge of Security and Mr. Felix Owusu-Adjepong in-charge of Traditional Affairs.

The others are Dr Owusu Afriyie-Akoto in-charge of Manifesto, Mr. Victor Newman in-charge of Research and Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku was named as Political Campaign Director. Mr. Roland Saka was named deputy sheriff sheriff in- complaint of the Northern Sector and Multiple Sclerosis Sophia Horner-Sam, deputy in complaint of the Southern sector. The rest: Mr. Simon Peter Macintosh Manu, National Chairman; Nana Ohene Ntow, General Secretary, Mr. Yaw Osafo Maafo, Multiple Sclerosis Mawusi Awitty and Hajia Rukia Ahmed. Mr. Jake Otanka Obetsebi-Lamptey caputs the 23-member political campaign squad for the New Patriotic Party

One societal and political observer had this to state on after the news was released:

"Dream squad outdoored! Discerning Ghanaians have got heaved a suspiration of alleviation today to cognize that there is truly integrity in the Nice Peoples Party and that the country's existent Democrats are all on board the political campaign squad of the freedom fighter, Nana Akufo Addo.

It is no surprise to happen that all members are winners and born politicians not by-force politicians. The axial rotation phone call of these giants of Ghana's political relation have immediately set a nail on the casket .With the quality of work force to be in complaint of all facets of the political political campaign of Nana Akuffo Addo, Ghanaians will be served with a political campaign based on issues and path record devoid of mudslinging"

Granting that he maintains them and takes them serious and not just to win the elections, this writer is somehow confident Nana Addo will make well.

By every count, this writer expects Nana Akufo Addo to be the adjacent president of Ghana. This writer believes Nana Akufo-Addo volition be a great president. His ground is partly derived from Nana Akufo Addo's long standing experience and initial attempts to unify the Party (NPP). This writer have assurance in the campaigning of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for respective reasons, including but not limited to the following:

Though Nana Akufo Addo have been in authorities or served in public business business office for this long we don't look to hear any bad things or slurs on his occupation or office. While the writer may desire to acknowledge that Nana Akufo Addo have not been seen as a transformational leader, creating new doctrines and ideals (or adding new things), he have stood his land as portion of the status-quo, without tainting his office(s). To the best cognition of this author, Nana Addo have not had struggles of involvements with the authorities he have served under. Even arsenic portion of the Establishment, Nana Akufo Addo have been a good squad participant and still maintained his dignity.

Recently, Nana Akufo-Addo, as the presidential campaigner of NPP, have apparently emerged as integrating some of the critics of his disposal in his core group. He have also brought into his political campaign most of, if not all, his oppositions in the NPP elections. This is unheard of in African politics.

Following his triumph in the December 2007 Particular National Delegates United States Congress Nana Addo have been exhibiting some transformational leading roles. This is a good mark for our democracy. In his first fourth estate conference, Nana Akufo-Addo have announced somes 23-member political campaign squad including most of the personalities who contested the NPP leading race (bitterly) against him in December 2007 and lost (See above).

Albeit, this writer accepts to some extent that our (Ghana's) constitution(s) put(s) tremendous powerfulnesses of authorities on the President therefore one must be careful to pre-judge a possible disposal until work is in process. It is the supplication of this writer that should Nana Addo go our adjacent president he would be willing to negociate some of those powerfulnesses that are keeping Ghana's development backward.

It must be reiterated that the original fundamental law of Republic Of Republic Of Ghana had the aim of protecting a colonial government based on protecting the business office of Her Magesty, the Queen of England. Then one darings not differ with the monarch. We must therefore be careful to back up in unequivocal footing any leading in Republic Of Ghana that is not willing to revisit the renters of our constitution. From his past engagement in public office, Nana Akufo Addo's campaigning may not fall short of this longing transformational leading theoretical account though.

As a strong advocator of the Rule of Law, I would wish to presume that the campaigning of Nana Addo would tap into his experience as once a practician in the European legal system to convey the same degree of regard and pattern of the Western experience in Ghana. I make bold state that until the Laws of our state are enforced by the courts, irrespective of how many mulct and great politicians we acquire there would still be unfairness and corruption, making the economical aims of a government non-effective.

Involvement of such as statesmen as Dr. Jack Kennedy may convey some fresh air and a suspiration of relief, above all, if and when the best encephalons of the resistance are also tapped into by our adjacent president. However, it (the 2009 administration) MUST get with some amendments to the 1992 fundamental law of Republic Of Republic Of Ghana to supply the needful bank checks and balances to curates of state and public officers.

A strong and echt engagement of the young person in the adjacent Ghanaian disposal would be bracing and a echt measure towards development in Ghana in peculiar and Africa's political procedure at large. This author, therefore, happens Nana Addo's gesture of involving many of the young person (who contested against him refreshing. Should he (Nana Addo) be willing to tap into the pizzazz of the youth, especially the likes of Jack Kennedy and Dr. Frimpong-Boateng, Nana Addo's disposal could travel Republic Of Ghana forward and closer to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Relevant Links

Notwithstanding, the procedure must get with a alteration of the 1992 Fundamental Law and do strong lawsuit for an independent bench that would control the surpluses of the executive director subdivision and the legislative branch. I would wish to presume that the adjacent political disposal have got started putting in topographic point some codifications of ethical motive that individual appointees would have to subscribe and submit to. A mere statement of Zero Tolerance will not suffice.

One advice for such as an disposal would be, to set many of the young person in cardinal policy places and not under the shadows (but monitoring device them well). Past disposals have got frustrated the Youth, and failed the state miserably. By ignoring the ideals of the Youth, you turn them into the position quo. Though some have got got been incorporate in the assorted governments, in the past, they have only been suppressed by the Constitution and turned into "mail men" or India rubber postages (and worse looters). To set it simply, great heads and thoughts (of the Youth) have got hitherto been marginalized by the Establishment.

Our adjacent president would make himself some good if he be willing to take the positions of the progressive Ghanaians/Youth with a pinch of salt over and above his egotism or sycophants. Please make not cut down your subsidiaries to "Yes men", it will come up back to ache you

Cameroon: Sustained Interest in Politics -

How often make we hear people state political relation is a soiled game. Others state political relation is a clean game rendered soiled by bad people. Whatever it is Cameroonians have, over the years, been involved in political relation with varied fortunes. From the colonial modern times through the patriot battle for independency till day of the month Cameroonians have got shown passionate involvement in politics.

Going down memory lane, what come ups to mind is the sign language in 1884 of the Germano-Douala Treaty with King Akwa which propelled Cameroon as a state into the human race geopolitical stage. Then came the time period of colonial regulation during which Cameroonians fought along side their colonial Masters against Nazism. Like in many African countries, this time period gave rise to a new sense of political consciousness among patriots who eventually got involved in the battle for independence. This new-found consciousness opened the gateway to the growing of political pluralism a few decennaries preceding independency which came for most states in the late 50s and early 60s; hence the birth of the first political political parties in Cameroon. With the attainment of independency in 1960, political pluralism which had go a world attracted the involvement of many Cameroonian nationalists. Much involvement and monolithic engagement in political relation helped to determine the result of the plebiscite by which Southern Cameroons reunited with the Democracy of Cameroun. After a little time period of multiparty politics, Cameroon plunged into massive administration between 1966 and 1990.

In 1990, Cameroon was caught up by the wind of democratic alteration from Eastern Europe ignited by the Soviet Union's Mikhail Gorbachev's perestroika and glasnosts. The launching in Bamenda of the Sociable Democratic Presence in May 1990 paved the manner for new-found freedom of assembly, address and association and multiparty elections. Many Cameroonian citizens became interested in political relation with the creative activity of many political parties. The authorities carried out many far-reaching reforms with the publication of new textual matters on rights and freedoms under the drift of the Head of State, President Alice Paul Biya. The political scene in Cameroon was marked by great enthusiasm, effervescence and at modern times turbulence. This clip period of monolithic engagement and involvement began to decline with the passing play of time when resistance political political parties came to recognize that it takes more than than absolute rhetoric to capture power. Many have got come up to recognize that the human race of political relation is characterized by machination and manipulation. This have caused some people to develop an mental attitude of indifference or unconcern towards engagement in political action.

Yet the figure of political political political parties have continued to turn with more than than 210 parties known to be in being as at last year. The last council and parliamentary elections of July 2007 proverb an unusually high per centum of abstaintion especially in the urban Centres which could be partly attributed to defeats caused by the failure of resistance political political parties and civil society arrangements to present on their promises. But this abstaintion was not a presentation of the deficiency of interest. In fact, the general concern shown nation-wide astir the argument on the amendment of the fundamental law turns out that Cameroonians are as interested in political relation today as they have got always been.

About Construction Site Accidents

A. Overview

Construction undertakings can be unsafe topographic points to work. Tools and stuffs acquire tossed around. Large, heavy physical objects are moved from topographic point to place. Great military units are unleashed; chemicals are used. Torches and fire and pressure level may be applied. Injuries can happen at even the safest occupation sites.

Accidents at building occupations are divided roughly into two classes - height-related injuries, and everything else. "Everything else" can be lilting over a hammer, or agony electrical shock, or hurts caused by faulty or insecure machinery, or anything that's not height-related. "Height-related" usually intends a fall, or an physical object dropped from above.

Cases for hurts caused by building land site accidents are usually very complex. Usually, there are many companies involved and it's not always clear who is to fault for the cause of an accident and resulting injury. Duty may fall on a company that the injured worker makes not even cognize about, such as as the proprietor of the building site, a sub-contractor, building manager, stuffs supplier, or general contractor. Additionally, there are many different ordinances and regulations intended to vouch a worker's safety, which negligent political parties sometimes utilize adroit defence lawyers to seek to wiggle out of.

Complicating the image is Worker's Compensation insurance, which every employer must have got available to its workers. Whether you're a Mason or carpenter, lineman or laborer, Fe worker or painter, you can not litigate your employer if you're injured. The injured worker can only have Worker's Compensation, which is guaranteed, but be givens to pay a little amount of money for lost reward and other benefits and is usually limited in the amount of clip that it will pay the injury claimant. The lone manner around New York's Worker's Compensation law is to litigate a individual or company that is not the injured person's employer - not a simple matter. This necessitates figuring out who did what, where, at the occupation site.

B. Some Law

One of the best known worker's protection laws is New York's Labor Law, subdivision 240, which is intended to protect workers from height-related risks. That law states:

1. All contractors and proprietors and their agents, except proprietors of one and two-family dwellings who contract for but make not direct or control the work, in the hard-on of, demolition, repairing, altering, painting, cleaning or pointing of a edifice or construction shall supply or erect, or cause to be furnished or erected for the public presentation of such as labor, scaffolding, hoists, stays, ladders, slings, hangers, blocks, pulleys, braces, irons, ropes and other devices, which shall be so constructed, placed and operated as to give proper protection to a individual so employed.

So if an injured worker was engaged in "erection of, demolition, repairing, altering, painting, cleaning or pointing" and using "scaffolding, hoists, stays, ladders, slings, hangers, blocks, pulleys, braces, irons, ropes and other devices" he or she have "super-protection" nether New House Of York State law. But there are respective loopholes, so an experienced accident or personal hurt building law lawyer is necessary in these cases.

For example, defences commonly raised by coverage companies to Labor Law claims are a "sole proximate cause" and "recalcitrant worker."

"Sole proximate cause" happens when the worker sets up equipment incorrectly and may be establish to be entirely responsible for the accident. As you tin imagine, this can be very slippery stuff.

For example, in one lawsuit (Robinson v. East Checkup Center), New York's Court of Appeals addressed a defence to a Labor Law subdivision 240 claim. The suspects claimed that the injured worker's actions were the exclusive proximate cause of his injury. The injured worker was ache while using a six-foot ladder - which he knew was too short to carry through the undertaking he needed to perform. And even though he knew that there were eight-foot ladders available at the occupation site, he stood on top of the six-foot ladder and fell. The work's lawsuit was dismissed because it was establish that he was the exclusive proximate cause of his injury.

"Recalcitrant worker" is when a worker utilizes equipment incorrectly. This usually is establish where a worker disregards safety instruction manual or neglects to utilize available safety equipment, when he or she should have got known better.

A Labor Law subdivision 240 claim was dismissed where the injured worker was provided with proper safety equipment and told how to use it safely, but was injured because he disregarded his supervisor's instruction manual and misused the equipment. (Mayancela v. Almat Real Property Development, LLC).

The consequence of the defences of "sole proximate cause" and "recalcitrant worker" is to bit away at the protections provided by law to New House Of York workers.

C. Conclusion

If you're ache in an accident, confer with a personal hurt or accident lawyer experienced in building land site and work-related injuries. Because of the complex issues and mixture of possible defendants, there must be a thorough probe of the building site, interviews of co-workers and witnesses, and, possibly, taking of photographs. This must be done fast, fast, fast - sometimes even while the injured worker is still in the hospital.

Sell That SUV?

What exactly are we supposed to do? We hear about alteration all the time, but instead of motivating us to make something, our politicians only cognize how to kick - with few existent solutions. I'm afraid that it is up to us to do the moves, not our politicians. But do what moves? This is where we go confused.

Sitting back and waiting for person else to make something is not only a cop-out, but is our cardinal problem. Who can make anything about our state of affairs other than ourselves? If we wait for the politicians to help, we could be waiting a long, long time!

The psychological science is that the jobs are too huge for small us to make anything about them, so we utilize this as an alibi and make nothing, remaining in our small comfortableness zones that are not so comfy any more! We bury about the powerfulness of the masses, which is us, and which is formidable! If each of us cut our gasolene ingestion 25%, for example, that would do a enormous difference on prices. The refiners would no longer have got an alibi of not adequate capacity in their works to provide our insatiate appetite.

But where make we get cutting our gasolene consumption? Well, we get with what we can make individually. We don't wait for person else to make it; we acquire out in presence of the situation. We near it as a precedence instead of an afterthought, and we make this in every facet of our lives. How make we make this? We cut down on our consumption, which wings in the human face of large concern that promotes consumption.

But expression where runaway ingestion have gotten us. The surpluses on Wall Street and the mortgage markets, the rise in nutrient prices, and the rise in trade goods prices; it all have to stop, and only we can halt it, because it is no 1 but us, and our greed and insecurity, that cause the bubbles.

The word is discipline, that repugnant word for which none have a taste. Discipline, obedience, compliance, entry - things that seemingly suppress us and look counter to a free democracy - but subject actually liberates us, and that is the mystery of discipline. Freedom sounds better, to make as we please, but this freedom have led us into purchasing the greatest gas guzzlers that we can't afford, in order to shot our insecure egoes so that we can sit down up higher than the other cat or gal, or expression more baleful in our large Diesel pickup truck trucks. We move like children in school yards.

Or we indulge in consuming just for the interest of the psychological boost, such as as purchasing enough clothing and place to fill up 10 walk-in closets! How to heal this? Stop being unintelligent and indulgent when purchasing things. Bash without for a alteration and see how you feel. After you acquire over the withdrawal, you might be surprised and collect some different values along the way.

We have got the eternal garage sales, and still must lease storage units of measurement to relieve the dozens of material we accumulate. And then kick about terms going up for Chinese commodity (Chinese "bads?")

None of us desires to work in a mill any longer; that's for the less class; all we desire to make is sit down around and pull off our portfolios. But that's not going to work either - everybody managing portfolios! So how to heal this? Fight for higher reward and wellness benefits however you can and as often as you can. Believe me, your big employers can afford it, they just prefer to shot the stock holders.

And if your employer is a little bourgeois who won't pay you a livable pay or supply healthcare because he or she can't afford it, then they should acquire a existent occupation for themselves where they might have got got to work for a life instead of concealment behind the perceived impression of entrepreneurship where they don't believe that they have to work for a boss. Actually, they have got many bosses; all of their creditors!

But to make anything necessitates restraint. Discipline is the first measure of any rehabilitation program, any spiritual order, and any sane manner of life. If we are undisciplined as individuals, our full state will reflect our disorderly conduct, and soon we will have got the type of pandemonium that is now just beginning. Discipline is taking duty for ourselves and sacrificing what we desire for what is good for society.

But few privation to assist anyone except themselves. So how make we heal this? Well, we can meditate to get with. Meditation is the fastest and surest manner to not only go disciplined, but to see what we are doing regarding careless and indulgent actions. And if we can't even sit down quietly for a few proceedings every twenty-four hours in meditation, how can we subject ourselves to make anything?

Unfortunately, non-compassionate, selfish mental attitudes make a dog-eat-dog world, and this is what we see developing here in the good 'ol U.S. of A. We can't even hold to assist the ill and mediocre who can't afford wellness attention or the hideous cost of drugs.

When we collectively turn our dorsums on our chap person beings, believe me we had better begin watching our ain backs, because we will soon go "them." How to heal this? First of all, take a blunt appraisal of your attitudes, and set them if you don't like what you see. Meditation will help.

The delusory mental attitude of large concern can't be demonstrated better than the deceptive P. R. commercial messages now airing by the drug companies. These commercial messages advance a autobus going around the state helping mediocre people who can't afford their overpriced drugs! While the drug companies complaint Americans three hundred percentage or more than than the remainder of the human race for drugs, just because we don't command our drug prices, while other states that have got socialized medical specialty do.

How to heal this? If possible, state your physician that you don't desire his drugs, or the drug companies that funded the doctor's education. And that you have got the subject to regiment your life style and mend yourself naturally. And ballot for whomever have the best socialized medical specialty proposal. And maybe even travel to a physician who advances alternate medicine, you know, that material without side effects!

I just don't believe that we are going to pass our manner out of this one. Our national recognition card, regard of the remainder of the world, is owed for one of those awful letters informing us that our involvement charge per unit have doubled. And it's too late to rupture it up now.

It's clock for different values, other than what we can purchase . . . on credit.

It's Your Right to Refuse a DUI Breath Test
