hat seems highly impossible to some fully grown men with strong muscles looks like an early morning tea to young Adabla Edudzi, a KG1 female pupil of Wuxor D/A Basic School in the Akatsi South District of the Volta region.

On Thursday, July 12 2018, the staff and pupils of Wuxor D/A Basic School embarked on an educational tour to explore the tourism potentials of the Volta region.
The management of the school made it an obligation to take students on educational tours at the end of every academic year and this year too is of no exception. Over the years the school have made visits to many tourist sites and state institutions across the country. Among the many places they have visited over the years are Kwame Nkrumah Museum, Parliament House, the Supreme Court, Kotoka International Airport, Tema Harbour, Air force Base, etc.

 The places they visited this year are, Afadjato, Wli Waterfalls and Tafia Tome Monkey Sanctuary. When young Edudzi heard her school will be hiking one of the tallest mountains in the world, she was determined to go. She cried to her parents and teachers to let her be part of pupils that will embark on this historic journey. Her teacher, Mr Ahedor Oscar finally gave in to her request and agreed to take her and keep her under his protection through out the journey.


The school finally took off early Thursday morning and Afadjato was their first point of visit. After few briefings, they started hiking. A lot of pupils even some teachers started given up midway into the hike but young Edudzi was determined to get to the top. At some points, she fell on the assistant of her teacher Mr Ahedor Oscar. She couldn't hide her joy when she finally made it to the apex of the tallest mountain in West Africa. To her, it was like a dream come true.


Wuxor is a very deprived small village in Akatsi South District of the Volta region of Ghana. For a female pupil of the age of Edudzi Adabla from a deprived school which lack lots of facilities to achieve this height is enough motivation for both young and old to be determined in achieving their aims in life. For this reason Edudzi Adabla need commendations and encouragement.

he Director of the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards (PIS) Bureau, COP Nathan Kofi Boakye, has advised media owners to provide protective cloths for their reporters who join the police to cover events such as protest and demonstrations. He said it is important for the police and the media to have meetings before and after operations to brief and debrief each other for mutual understanding and teamwork.

resident of the National House of Chiefs, Togbe Afede, is demanding an immediate apology from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and its National Chairman, Freddie Blay, for “insulting and disrespecting” him.

Togbe Afede’s request comes on the back of a story published by a news portal; Mynewsgh, claiming that Freddie Blay had described him [Togbe Afede] as an ignorant person who talks like a palm-wine tapper, following his comments on the acquisition of 275 mini buses for 275 constituencies by the NPP’s newly elected Chairman.
The story, titled ‘Stop the ignorance and “palm-wine business talk” – Blay replies Togbe Afede, did not specifically indicate where Freddie Blay made the supposed comments, except to say that Mr. Blay questioned if Togbe Afede was a palmwine tapper when he made huge money as a Chief and a businessman.


A statement signed by Secretary of the Asogli State Council, Stephen Tetteh, said the Council takes “strong exceptions to the statements, names and comments in this reply as they are insulting and disrespectful.”
They threatened to take the next line of action if the party and Mr. Blay fails to apologize for the offensive comments. These alleged comments from Mr. Blay came to the fore after Togbe Afede waded into the controversy surrounding the acquisition of the 275 buses. 
Togbe Afede, a businessman who is also the President of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs, said the move by Freddie Blay deepens the corruption perception. He thus urged chiefs to help address the worsening perception and incidence of corruption in the country.
“Let me say that the frequency of corruption at elections is worrying; because that sequence itself suggests the lack of trust and lack of transparency…. And I think that we all have to work hard to minimize the frequency of perceptions of corruption and corruption.
Nananom [Chiefs] should lead the fight and should talk for transparency. Sometime ago, it was one party building a multi-million dollar headquarters, we all sat down and did not complain. And recently, an aspiring chairman of a party buying several 275 vehicles. These are matters that should attract Nananom’s attention. 
And I’m very happy that at least the latest one has attracted the attention of the special prosecutor. Unfortunately, the canker has spread so deeply” the Cheif said about the 275 buses controversy.

Freddie Blay
It’s foolish to question timing for my 275 buses – Freddie Blay
The Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay has described as “foolish” the questions about the timing of his purchase of 275 buses for New Patriotic Party (NPP) constituencies across the country.

 
Speaking in a Joy News interview, Freddie Blay said arrangements for the purchase of the minibuses were several months ahead of the NPP’s delegates conference and was before he sought reelection.
“Why now? If yesterday I didn’t do business and today I do business, [they’ll] ask why now. It is a very foolish question for people to ask. If some people have done it yesterday and today I am in the position to do it. That arrangement was not started two weeks to election, not one month to election… It’s about 11 months [ago]. I had not even decided to contest,” he said.

ear after year public surveys carried out indicate the perception of Ghanaians relative to the performance of Ghana Police service. 
Majority of Ghanaians see Ghana Police Service as the most corrupt and inept institution in Ghana.
This perception has been reinforced by the actions and inactions of the Ghana Police Service. However, reforming Ghana police service is not in the realm of impossibility. What we need is a radical institutional reform and paradigm shift from the narrative. 

The following are necessary and very crucial steps that must be taking to make GPS the number in the world. These steps are foolproof meaning that implementing them will surely lead to positive change.
The first step in reforming the GPS is depoliticizing its leadership. This defect is attributable to how the constitution has structure the appointment of the IGP and the constitution of the Police Council. The IGP is appointed by the President of Ghana.

The constitution must be amended to change this arrangement. The position of IGP must be one that is either elective in nature or must be meritorious in nature (based on ranking and number of years in service). Also the police council in which the vice president serves as the chairman needs serious reform. The council is politicized based on the fact that majority of its members are appointed by the president.
The council going forward should be constituted by only the regional commanders, IGP, heads of various departments at GPS and a sole representative of the president. Either the veep or the minister responsible for security and internal affairs being the sole rep of the president. The IGP and rep of the president serving as CO-chairs of the council. This would mitigate the influence politicians have on the GPS. The service is a professional body and must be kept as such.

The second step in reforming GPS must be focused on how to hold police service accountable relative to the conduct of the police personnel. Police personnel are human beings and a bound to make mistakes and commit crimes.
It is no secret that some recalcitrant personnel in GPS engage in taking bribes, abusing the right of citizens etc. Internal structures such as the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards (PIPS) have been put in place to investigate police personnel and take disciplinary actions against them if found guilty. This arrangement is highly flawed.

Most at times PIPS either fail to ensure completion of investigations thereby killing the process or they fail to make sure that victims are given true justice. An example is the recent case of brutality against joynews journalist Latiff. This particular case is being delayed in order to discontinue the process.
This is purely due to issues of conflict of interest. What we must do is to set-up independent body with it branches at district, divisional, regional and national police stations. This body will be made up of Ghanaians who will be picked by the public service commission on volunteering bases.

They will serve for a stipulated period of time and be replaced by next budge of appointees at the end of their tenure. Complaint desk must be established to receive public complaints on the bases of anonymity. Members of this body should be provided with necessary logistics and knowledge relative to their work.
The third step that needs to be taken to reform the GPS is the adoption and use of Body Cameras in law enforcement. This step has been acknowledged by govt. On 6th December 2017, the dep. Minister of Communication George Andah said that the GPS will be equipped with body cameras to help fight corruption in the service. Use of Body cameras by law enforcement has been fully adopted in the US at both state and federal level. Studies have showed increase in both officer and citizen accountability due to its use. 

Most developed countries have adopted use body cameras as part of law enforcement. Ghana must adopt this reform.
The fourth step in reforming GPS must focus on decentralizing the service. The tradition of IGP and regional commanders transferring their subordinate must be scrapped. This tradition gives too much power to officials at the top of the police hierarchy. Transfer was designed to help curb corruption and promote efficiency in the service. However, with the reforms coming into place this makes the tradition obsolete. Also regional and district commanders should either be elected by the indigenes of the regions or districts or they should reach those positions based on their ranking in the service.

The last reform process is what I term miscellaneous step. Salaries of the personnel should be relooked at to correspond with level of productivity. Necessary logistics and infrastructures must be provided to the personnel. A well-resourced service will perform to its best ability. Internationally standardized processes must be adopted in training and recruiting personnel into the service. That means that minimum educational levels should be set, minimum IQ levels and cognitive status should be considered, protocol list should be abolished.

urses at the Akrodie Health Centre in the in Asunafo North Municipality of the Brong Ahafo region are forced to use torch lights to deliver pregnant women due to lack of standby generator when there is power outages in the area. 


The health officials and patients rely on lights on mobile phones to administer health care anytime the area is hit by power cuts. A Nurse in charge of Akrodie Health Center Maternity Ward, Madam Victoria Pormaa Keremaa told Success News, the situation is affecting quality health care delivery at the facility. “Our main problem here is our lighting system, in case there is light off you have to use your phone light for delivery, which is very bad and unacceptable in the profession.

 We don’t do delivery in darkness, in case there is a problem with the client you will not know, there should be adequate lighting before you attend to a patient, its headache I’m going through as a midwife” She bemoaned She therefore appeal to authorities to support the facility.
