Church 'Too Dangerous' For Politicians

With the 2016 general elections drawing, it wouldn’t be long for the two major political parties to hit on the ground to campaign for votes.
 
In an attempt to win the voters to their side, our famous politicians will not spare our churches with the deception they have to offer.
 
It is without doubt that Politics made in Ghana is about the showcase of the talent of trickery; mastery in the dubious art is a clear indication of readiness to handle power.
 
Inasmuch as the majority are well aware of the nature of some of our politicians, one can’t risk voting for a candidate with a minimal chance of winning.
 
Since dishonesty seems to be in the blood of our politicians, it is only appropriate to give a word of caution to the deceptive ones who are hoping to preach politics in the church.

It Is Ghana’s Oil!

The uniqueness of oil and gas determines its approach by government and the citizens of a state, especially when it is mutually agreed that precious minerals and natural resources under any territory belongs to the sovereign state in which they were discovered. Four years after production of oil in commercial quantities Ghanaians are searching for answers to two questions; Do we own the oil, if yes why do we receive only 10% of the oil proceeds?, and Does Ghana truly share the oil with neighbouring ivory cost?
1. Do we own the oil, if yes why do we receive only 10% of the oil proceeds?

NIB To Open 22 New Branches

The National Investment Bank is to open 22 new branches across the country in the next three years.

Mr Ernest M. Agbesi, Managing Director of the Bank, gave the hint at the dedication and commissioning of the Ho branch building on Friday.

He said the “strategic plan” was to create jobs and take banking closer to the public.

Mr Agbesi said six of the new branches would be opened in the next five months, eight in 2015, and the remaining eight in 2016, by which time the total number of branches would be 50 in 50 years.

He said the Bank had re-positioned itself with enhanced and upgraded Information Technology infrastructure to “meet competition head-on,” and asked its customers to keep faith with the institution.

“We have shown remarkable strength in the face of competition, and I urge you all to continue to patronize our services,” Mr Agbesi said.

5 Really Bad Reasons To Leave Your Church

Let’s be honest, while there are some good reasons for leaving a church, there are a lot more bad ones. As a pastor, I hear some of them every now and then as people walk out the door. As a church planter, I hear them constantly as people walk in the door.
If you’re thinking about looking for a new church home, please don’t use one of these five reasons to make the jump:

Mr President, Please Stop Playing Tribal Cards Amid Offering Flimsy Excuses!

I find it absolutely awkward President Mahama's fondness for resorting to playing tribal cards whenever his integrity and competence come under scrutiny. He seems to have found a safe haven in tribal cards that he can quickly shuffle to daze his critics. Right from 2012 electioneering campaign with its concomitant election promises that still remain largely unfulfilled, President Mahama has always been playing populist tribal cards so effectively to prop his position.
Knowing that he can easily whip up the sentiments of a group of people to sympathize with him, President Mahama will forever remain the obstinate 'Yen ntie obiara', most incompetent person in whose hands the fate of Ghanaians has been entrusted.

A ship on troubled waters ...but it is all we have

Over the past few months, you have literally felt the economy sink its teeth into your flesh—biting so hard. The situation may not be much better the world over, but the Ghanaian situation points to a state of hopelessness that we are being driven into by our leaders.

I’m not too sure whether ours is a problem of incompetent leadership or leadership bereft of ideas. Either way, we are at a crossroads that could determine the country’s destiny—that is, if you believe in destinies.

There are no jobs for university graduates, not to talk about the high number of people who are not able to make it to the tertiary level. Research has shown that at least 80 percent of people who start basic school are not able to make it to the tertiary level—very alarming figures, if you asked me.
