I have always believed that for Ghana to truly live up to the ideals and vision of the founding father Dr. Kwame Nkrumah that “the independence of Ghana is meaningless unless it is linked to the total liberation of Africa,” the masses must be educated.

The National Science and Maths Quiz NSMQ has been able to capture the hearts of Ghanaians, in the way and manner only the Blackstars were able to, and I would like us to think and reflect on these issues suitable for this moment before the fire dies out.....

The potential of mankind to live as rational beings is one most amazing blessing. The rationality of man aids in decision making and problem solving. As a lecturer in both Problem Solving and Decision Making, I came to terms with the meaning of introductory quote "NOTHING grows in its value unless it has (communal) UTILITY".
We live in a society where citizens are not ready to face the consequences of their actions and inactions, yet they do what they ought not to do and absent from doing what they are obliged by law to do.
