Defining the Ground Rules for Political Party Activities

Saturday, April 5, 2008

Africa is fast gaining notoriety for running flawed elections. Cameroun, Nigeria, Kenya and Zimbabwe have exhibited the most atrocious violations of citizen’s right to freely choose who should direct their desires. Many countries on the continent are awaiting their fate as elections are planned for the end of 2008. Ghana, an oasis of peace and tranquility is one such country. Are Ghanaians waiting for the ominous nemesis visited upon by leaders of the aforementoned countries? Or would Ghanaians warn their presidential hopefuls to literally, store water to put out their potential burning beards? editor and IMANI’s Executive Director, Franklin Cudjoe speaks again to TV Africa’s host of "Matters Arising", Dr. Niyi Bi Alarbi, one time Speech Writer of Ghana’s Current President. The other discussant is the Director of Public Affiars of the National Council on Civic Education. This is the fourth TV Africa apearance in three weeks.

Also, contributor and IMANI’s Director of Development, Bright Simons continues to urge civil discourse over political invectives on Ghana’s most popular local language programme, "OMAN YI MU NSEM"( translated, National Issues). This is the third TV Africa appearance in one month.
