I was going through an old journal the other day and found some notes i took at Dr. Samuel Koranteng-Pipim and Dr. Joyce Aryee‘s lecture on excellence which was delivered at the national theatre. The lecture was to launch their book “The Transformed Mind” which the two authored. Although i have not read the book yet, it is definitely on my “to read list”. I decided to share the notes i took from that lecture here because first it struck a chord for me, i believe i discerned more from it now than before. Second,… Read Article →

This is a post i wrote on March 6, 2015 (Ghana’s Independence Day) after attending the Pan African Congress.

On the whole, Africa faces a myriad of developmental issues, yet  very few countries have defined a common vision or inspired a sense of urgency to which all citizens should work towards. What we often see and hear about are complex development plans that are not properly interpreted nor easily accessible by citizens. Shrouded in secrecy, civil servants who are supposed to work to realise them… Read Article →

It’s an early Sunday morning and I have been awoken by my grandfather’s knock on the door. Having found the couch a most comfortable place to sleep, I am almost always the first to open the door and know of his presence. This also comes with being the first to get the sweets which his pockets never seemed to be empty of. Those rare Sunday mornings formed the early memories I had of my grandfather. And those rare Sundays were how he spent his last years, he tried visiting the families of each of his… Read Article →
