Weed Is Not A Hard Drug, It’s A Powerful Medicine Which Cures Blindness, HIV, Cancer And Other Sicknesses — Paa Kwesi Dobble

I happen to believe the legalization of marijuana is something that’s not as scary as people like to put it. There are many people who smoke marijuana and function properly in society, and honestly if alcohol is legal there’s no reason marijuana should not be since they both effectively alter the chemical composition of your brain to make you feel ‘high’.

Aside my personal belief it also looks like the legalization movement is gathering steam in Ghana, considering not only the artist throwing their weight behind it but even ‘respected’ personalities such as Kwesi Pratt and Kwame Sefa Kayi.

On Captain Mahama’s Murder: ‘Why Send Our Soldiers to Protect Foreign Mining Companies in Ghana, Is the Role of the Army to Protect Foreign Mining Companies?’–Kwesi Pratt Jnr Asks

From what the Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr is saying, Captain Mahama and other soldiers were stationed at Obuasi-Denkyire to protect a foreign mining company–perhaps, the reason why his mission out there still remains sketchy.

Speaking on Radio Gold yesterday, Kwesi Pratt said:

What we are discussing is a national security situation; it’s a major challenge for national cohesion, a functioning state. What we are discussing is a sliding into a banana republic…what we are talking about is impunity; the lack of faith in our security establishment. The refusal of state actors to punish crime, that’s what we are talking about…and we should focus attention on that in order to deal with the problem”

The announcement by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that in order not to burden the country, costs for the Ghana @ 60 celebrations would not exceed Ghc 20m has been roundly condemned by Ghanaians on social media and via other mediums.

The attached announcement that the money would be raised from corporate Ghana has not been received any better, with people wondering, rightly, what these companies would be getting in return for pumping their money into our celebrations.

Kwesi Pratt Asks: Why Can’t NPP Launch Their Manifesto?

kwesi-pratt
Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr who many have accused of him selling his journalism conscience to the ruling NDC has asked why the opposition New Patriotic Party [NPP] has delayed in launching its manifesto–considering the ample time they’ve had in opposition.
Speaking on radio Gold’s political talk show ‘Alhaji & Alhaji’ over the weekend, he said: “When it comes to launching of manifesto, at least three or four parties have launched their manifesto and the NPP cannot launch its manifesto. What was the purpose of their early congress then? How did the NPP use that early congress in other to move ahead of the competing parties? This baffles me.”
“What did early congress do for the NPP? These are serious questions to ask,” he added.

Non-Achievers’ Money Made You Rich—Kwesi Pratt Tells Duncan-Williams

Archbishop_Duncan-Williams

 

This seems to be the only TRUTH I have heard from Ghana this year…

How can a man of God who does not WORK but lives on the offering of a congregation ever open his mouth to say this—and yet no one has the audacity to tell him the plain truth?

Kwesi Pratt just told Duncan Williams the hard truth and I hope he sits down to reflect on things….This is like taking people’s money and then turning around to tell them they are useless/poor…

According to PeaceFm;

The General Overseer of the Christian Action Faith Ministries (CAFM), Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has been chastised for his comments that non-achievers and under-achievers were not qualified to criticise him.

According to the Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, the archbishop should note that it was through the offerings of his church members that have made him what he (Archbishop Duncan-Williams) was today.

Expressing dissatisfaction over the archbishop’s comments as a panelist on Peace FM’s Tuesday morning show, Mr Pratt said, “If I attend a church and the pastor talks to me like that I won’t attend that church again.”

Prayer Alone Won’t Take Ghana Anywhere Says Kwesi Pratt

Driving In Ghana (2)
Ghana

Believe me or not, there are certain people in Ghana who refuse to go to the hospital when sick, rather they run to the church. Similarly, there are people who expect to be fed the way the Israelis were fed straight from heaven and there are those who leave everything to God while doing nothing…

It is great that most Ghanaians are God fearing but without engaging in what will bring productivity ( which prayers can’t bring), our country will continue to struggle.

We must know when to leave God alone and take up the mantle…

According to PeaceFM;

Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper has bemoaned the country’s inability to improve on the economy despite its vast resources.

Speaking to the issue of the downward trend of the economy, Kwesi Pratt Jnr told Suhiyini Alhassan of Radio Gold that the decline in the economy can be based on two factors: low levels of productivity, and the lack of control of the country’s resources.

Low levels of productivity

During the time of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s First President, the country produced lots of items which brought development into the country, according to Kwesi Pratt.

POLITRICKS OF THE DAY: Kwesi Pratt Jnr. Says NPP’s Deceptive Lawyers Are Bound ‘To Face A Boomerang Like Others Have Faced Hurricanes And Tsunamis’

Kwesi Pratt

Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. seems piqued at the conduct of some leading members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) saying their deportment sometimes leaves a bile in the mouth of Ghanaians and undermines the very democratic principles they claim to espouse.

His umbrage at their behaviour stems from the reassurances some NPP bigwigs have been giving their members that it is likely “Nana Akufo-Addo will be sworn in as president of Ghana” very soon.

According to him, he was completely taken aback to read in one of the newspapers that Ms. Gloria Akuffo, a member of the legal team representing the NPP Petitioners; Nana Akufo-Addo, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey and Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, had told NPP sympathizers that the Supreme Court is likely to rule in the NPP’s favour.

Mr Pratt, in his view, believes the NPP’s “unrealistic” petition challenging the outcome of the just ended presidential elections could “technically” travel for fifteen years.

He therefore warned those engaged in that deceptive act to desist from it saying “when that boomerang occurs; they would be facing it like others have faced hurricanes and tsunamis”.

“Quite apart from the fact that it is prejudicial, it is also not based on any realistic examination of the case before the Supreme Court”.

“…So if a lawyer, in the face of all of this is telling NPP members that ‘in a few weeks time or very soon, Nana Akufo-Addo would be declared the President of Ghana’, that person is engaged in an act of deception, and is engaged in heaping up unrealistic expectations which may boomerang.”
