May the fleas of a thousand Afgan camels infest the *ass* of all who wish you evil in the coming year, and may their hands grow too short to scratch. Wish you a blissful X'mas and a new year of divine protection.

On this special day in my life, I give an unmeasurable gratitude to God for his guidance, favour, mercies, grace and blessing in all these years. I appreciate how far He's brought me and pray He takes me higher and higher because I know for a fact that He's not through with me yet.

What is wrong with my brother?

Image
This is from a DOCIA'S NEST (DN) reader:

My older brother got separated from his wife two years ago and decided to live with his two sons (8 years and 6 years) whiles his wife lives with the only daughter (4 years). Even though he remits them VERY REGULARLY, there are no signs of his wife coming back into the marriage. Even though he cooks very well, he decided to go in for another lady to run the home for him whiles he concentrates on his business. The second lady who is now cohabiting with my brother does virtually EVERYTHING in the home - cooking, washing, scrabbing, in fact everything.
One day I sat my brother down and advised him to customarily marry the second lady since his wife has no intention of coming back. To my dismay my brother said he will never make such a mistake of marrying her, in fact HE HAS NEVER DREAMT of and does not even dream of marrying her, all that he needs is someone to run his home for him and also sleep with. This has been going on for almost two ye…

But for God's intervention

I owe it all to Jesus, I owe it all to Jesus If I am ever anything, all the praise to Him I bring I owe it all to Jesus, I owe it all to Jesus This song of love from deep within, I owe it all to Him
My lil girl who celebrated her 3rd birthday last month was nearly knocked down by a speeding saloon car yesterday just some few meters away from my parents home. Because I work and school at the same time, they spend most of the afternoon with their grannies. Yesterday after taking her lunch, her 10 year old cousin decided that they take a stroll around the house. Not long had they gone out than the car came speeding by, the driver had to immediately apply the brakes to avoid hitting my angel. 
As if that wasn't enough, today in the office I decided to boil some water in a kettle for my medication because my driver came earlier than the normal time, I had to rush to the office without preparing it at home. After boiling the water for about 8 minutes, I tried adjusting my swivel chair so I…

Ghana's Election 2012 - Electoral Commissioner Declares Winner

Image
At exactly 9:55 pm, Sunday December 9, 2012, the Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan declared John Dramani Mahama as President Elect and winner of this year's election. The atmosphere preceding the declaration of the election result was very tense as supporters of the New Patriotic Party complained of rigging of some results at some Constituencies.

Congrats to him anyway.

Ghana's Election on-going

Image
Ghanaians all over the country are today voting to elect a new President and Parliamentarians to steer the affairs of the country for the next four years. As early as 10pm last night, people had already queued up at the various polling stations anxious to cast their ballot. I woke up this morning and decided to take a walk to some few places to observe what was going on. To my dismay people used all sorts of objects to queue, items like gallons, benches, chairs, stones and buckets were used to stand in for persons yet in bed.

Today being a public holiday, some busy streets in Accra have virtually been deserted as only a few cars were seen around. The Osu Oxford street, one of the busiest street in Ghana was totally empty with no business going on.  At the Ministries area, the roads were completely empty-neither humans nor vehicles were in sight. *Giggling* I pray the traffic situation continues till after Christmas.

I took a few pictures for you to see. Do continue reading I will be up…

One day more to election 2012, all eyes on Ghana

Image
With just 1 more day for Ghana to go to the polls all global eyes are firmly fixed on Ghana. Ghana has been described as the beacon of Africa's democracy, a country that has witnessed 5 peaceful polls after a referendum to return the country to democratic rule in 1992. The West African sub-region has witnessed a few political instability for some years now, nevertheless, Ghana has stood tall among them but, the time has come once again for Ghana to prove her ingenuity towards a peaceful political transition.

PEACE!     PEACE!!     PEACE!!!   PEACE!!!!

A confused husband needs your advice

Image
Hi good people of blog ville,
One of my readers inboxed me to seek advice on an issue that is bothering him.
Lets call him Alvin, he's been married to Brenda for almost eight years now with a 3 year old girl. Initially, Alvin was diagnosed of low sperm count and erectile dysfunction which he made Brenda aware of before they got married. According to Alvin despite his condition he is able to *satisfy* his wife who seldom complains of short duration of sexual intercourse.

Alvin's headache is that for a few years now Brenda has started sleeping around with other men. He says there are occasions where Brenda will seek permission to visit her father and will end up in another man's house. Her co-workers and even school mates have entered her. Her attitude has made her shed her matrimonial responsibilities that Alvin lays the bed, cook for the family, bath their 3 year old girl and take her to school. The most annoying part of it all is that Brenda even does it with some of her …

Make Ghana Proud - Kofi Annan tells Ghanaians

Image
A former United Nations Secretary-General, Mr Kofi Annan, has called on Ghanaians to make the 2012 general election further proof that the country is a true African success story whose best days are yet to come. He said, “Beyond party differences, there is the greater national interest at stake. After the elections, we shall have to work together across party lines to pursue the development of our country. Much remains to be done to ensure a better future for our children. We cannot afford to let them down.” He explained that since 1992, Ghana, above all its electoral issues, had conducted five elections and seen two peaceful transfers of power between parties and made the country become a by word for electoral success and political stability in Africa.
Shalom!

Former Vice President of Ghana laid to rest

Image
Thousands of mourners thronged the Independence Square on Sunday 18th November to bid farewell to their departed former Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama, who passed away on Friday 16th November 2012.  The mortal remains was conveyed from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital clad in the national colours to the venue.

Members of the opposition New Patriotic Party, under whose ticket he served as a Vice President were there in their numbers to mourn their departed fellow.
His body was later flown to Tamale, his hometown in the Northern Region where he was buried in a grave dug in the center of the compound of one of his homes at Kalpohini Estates.

He was a man of few words, but full of action.

May he rest peacefully in the bosom of Allah.

Fare thee well.

Ghana's Former Vice President is dead

Image
A former Vice President in the Kufuor led NPP Administration, His Excellency Alhaji Aliu Mahama has been called to eternal rest. He passed on after a short illness at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra. Information about his health was made public after the President, John Dramani Mahama called on all Muslims to pray for him when he had gone to worship with them at the just ended Eid-Ul-Adha celebrations.

Ghana has really suffered a lot this year with the passing on of its sitting President, John Atta Mills and we hope nothing of this sort happens again.

He will be buried according to Islamic customs. Stay tuned for more updates.

May Allah grant him eternal rest.

Happy Birthday to my lil girl, Teresa Maame Afua Obiri Asare

Image
One day I walked into a mother-care shop to buy some clothes for my son, as soon as I entered, a baby girl's dress caught my attention that I stood and sheepishly stared at the dress till the shop attendant asked me why. It was then I realised how anxious I was getting with the issue of having a baby girl. Not long atfer, I took seed and when a scan confirmed a baby girl, I felt like entering my womb to see my little angel, mehn! that day the Heavens kissed the Earth.

Today 13th November 2012 as you celebrate your 3rd birthday, all that myself, Caleb and daddy wish you is God's blessing, favour and power as you sojourn this world. May you live to be that courteous, beautiful and smart lady that we will always look up to.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Wait until we are in crisis

In 1998 Ghana experienced an unprecedented load shedding all over the country. During the period, government came out to promise a lot of interventions to curb the situation. This was after a lot of businesses had layed off their workers and people lost their homes to fire as a result of power fluctuations and its associated mishaps. This motivated me to write an article under this headline for publication in one of the weekly newspapers.  The said article never was because after my father read it, he lamented he wouldn't be responsible for any issues that may arise if certain issues I've addressed are made public. Dependent as I was, I decided to do away with my article with the hope that later in life, the need may arise.

Wednesday 7th November will forever remain in the history of Ghana and Melcom Group of Companies as a five-storey building housing the Achimota branch of Melcom Stores collapsed to the ground. As of the time of writing this article, 76 people have been resc…

The Melcom building collapse - Death is Inevitable

Image
Death they say is inevitable, but how one exits this world is what really matters. We wake up in the morning and bid good bye to our families and loved ones with the hope of meeting with them again in the evening, but some of the good bye end up being the last of such a gesture. Yesterday my eyes couldn't believe what it saw as trapped bodies cried for air and water. Those whose cries could not penetrate the thick concrete  pillars to the Rescue team and onlookers gave up their ghost. Oh! man born of a woman is but of few days.


May their innocent souls rest in peace.

And Melcom Store Came Tumbling Down

Image
At least three people have been confirmed dead and several others injured when a four-storey building housing the Achimota branch of Melcom Stores came tumbling down on Wednesday morning. Several others are feared to be trapped in the debris of concrete blocks, household goods and some food items.

Information reaching me indicate that some unscrupulous young men are taking advantage of the situation to loot items at the scene but for the intervention of security personnel from the Army, Police and Fire Service.

My condolence to the bereaved families.

Shouts out to OBAMA

If someone had prophesied in the 14th century that a negro will rule America in the 21st century I would have doubted him/her. But here we are witnessing President Obama's victory over Mr Romney, isn't God good?

Micheal Essien to wed Akosua Puni

Image
But for the postponement of Real Madrid’s match with Rayo Vallecano at the Vallecas stadium on Sunday night, former Chelsea star, Micheal Essien, a Ghanaian football star would have tied the knot with his new-found love, Akosua Puni yesterday.

I was reliably informed that Essien would have flown to London to join specially invited friends and football stars for the wedding.  It is also rumoured that the lucky lady at the centre of the wedding, Akosua Puni, is carrying Essien’s second child.
Will actress Nadia Buari be at the wedding?

Lucky you, Akosua.

Amber Rose And Wiz Khalifa Announce Pregnancy At VMAs

Image
Looks like MTV's annual Video Music Awards has now become the venue du jour to announce that one is expecting a new arrival. Following in Beyonce's footsteps from last year, hip-hop luminary Wiz Khalifa confirmed on the VMAs red carpet that fiancee Amber Rose is indeed with child.
It wasn't too hard to guess--rumors had already been flying for several days about the pregnancy, plus Rose was sporting a visible bump in her close-fitting lace dress--but the news was received with much excitement.

Deputy Minister writes Letter to Late President Atta Mills

Image
Dear Sir, In adding my voice to the numerous befitting tributes occasioned by your untimely departure from this ‘terra firma’, I evoked this Roman Catholic prayer for the dead translated from Latin into English as: “May the angels take you into Paradise, may the martyrs welcome you on your way and lead you into the Holy City Jerusalem. May the choir of angels welcome you, and with Lazarus who once was poor, may you have everlasting rest.”

I am convinced Jehovah heard and answered our prayers. Please prepare a place for us; for here is still hot and the unreasonableness and the political chicanery continues unabated. Sometimes I wonder whether this whole calling – politics, is worth it.

Prof., for the purpose of this first letter I will not bore you with too voluminous a piece because I am aware you are a fresher (‘homo’) who has just joined the Dr Hilla Limanns, Munufies, the D.F. Annans, the Ala Adjeteys, the B.J. Da Rochas and many others who went long before you, so you must be giv…

This was preceeded by a mamoth burial service attended by Heads of State of 18 countries across the world. Countries which could not make it sent high-powered delegation to grace the ocassion. Notable among them included the U.S Secretary of State, Mrs. Hillary Clinton and former U.N Secretary General, Kofi Annan.

One common word that run through his tributes was humility.

H.E John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills, rest peacefully in the bossom of Abraham till we meet again.



Shalom!
