Constitutional Challenges for NPP at the Supreme Court (Part 1)

 Since NPP’s press conference on December 28, 2012 to give further particulars on their petition at the Supreme Court (SC) challenging the declaration of President John Mahama as winner of the 2012 Presidential Election, a number of very interesting articles have been posted on Ghanaweb on the legality and or constitutionality of making the President, personally liable in the suit.

 NPP’s Mr Kwabena Agyapong - How the Mighty Are Falling!!


The declaration of President Mahama after the 2012 polls was not without snags as the opposition New Patriotic Party indicted the EC of fraudulently declaring the candidate of the ruling National Democratic Congress as the winner. There was a whirlwind over the country by the claim of the NPP to contend the decision of the EC at the Supreme Court which after days of gathering evidence came to fruition on Friday 28th of December, 2012.

Tsatsu Tsikata’s Legal Blows Revisited

After almost three weeks of fishing for what it termed evidence to prove that the 2012 Presidential results declared by the Electoral Commission was fraught with ‘systemic stealing,’ the New Patriotic Party (NPP), arrived at the Supreme Court with a petition that demonstrates that either the party is mathematically challenged or intends to perpetrate fraud on the people of Ghana.

Inauguration of President Mahama: Will Ex-Prez Kufuor Attend?

 Even though the NPP has filed its case at the Supreme Court to fight the EC over the outcome of the Presidential elections, I am quite certain that the matter will not be determined before January 7, 2013, when President Mahama will be inaugurated into office.

The NPP Shackles Itself By Suing President Mahama

 Now that the NPP leaders have submitted their petition to the Supreme Court to demand the declaration of their defeated flagbearer, Akufo-Addo, as winner of Election 2012, they seem to have made good their threat to pursue their claims of electoral malpractices to the full. They can now congratulate themselves as successful lawyers and politicians who know how to follow the due process to achieve “victory”.

STATEMENT: I’m Tired Of Adwoa Safo’s Childish & Uncultured Behaviour – NDC Candidate

My attention has been drawn to a desperate attempt by Sarah Adwoa Safo to tag NDC as a bunch of thieves. Initially, I didn't take her blatant lies seriously, I thought it didn't warrant my response, and discounted it as juvenile posturing. 

Why NDC won and NPP lost: My Take

When reality hits it hits hard that's why NPP is finding it very difficult to recover and come to terms with their loss of the elections. The fact is after careful analysis of the whole game I believe NDC won the elections hands down. Below is a summary of some observations I made and its region related.

OPEN LETTER To Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo


Why is the NPP seeking refuge in the Asantehene?

The announcement that the NPP will present a petition to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, after a demonstration in Kumasi on Tuesday comes across as part of the intricate scheming by the party’s leaders either to save face and abandon their head-butting with the Electoral Commission or to raise their protestations to a whole new level. Either way, the gravitation toward the Otumfuo has added a new complexion to the matter.


Ghana is referred to as the beacon of Africa when it comes to democracy.There are 10 regions in the country. Ashanti and Eastern regions are the strongholds of NPP, the largest opposition party in Ghana as of now.Volta region and some parts of the Northern region are the strongholds of the ruling NDC party.

The other regions are equally shared and normally decide  which party rules Ghana especially Central region and Greater Accra region.Central region, to be precise Cape Coast was the seat of government before it was moved to Greater Accra region, i.e. Accra.

Machiavelli Bites Dr. Mensah Otabil: When Politics Come to the Pulpit

What issues, if any, in our society could be classified as politics or Religion and if any at all, what difference does it make to the complex challenges that confront us daily as human kinds? Who is a politician and who is not a politician, and if a politician is so “evil” why do we chose him or her to “supervise” affairs that appear to matter to all citizens of Ghana? Again who should be drawn into politics and who should not?

Rockshell Judgement Debt Bombshell



 Having fully examined the 115 pages of the NPP's manifesto for the 2012 elections, we read their latest promise to build 350 new schools, which is not contained in their manifesto, with amusement. The NPP's latest attempt to attract voters raises more questions about the thinking that underlies their campaign than a realistic or pragmatic response to the development challenges facing Ghana's education system. Where is this new promise coming from? What really informed it?
