Documentation on the newly inaugurated Wa Regional Hospital does not support the claim by the National Democratic Congress that the project was initiated and executed while the party was in power.

Ghana is going to hell in a handcart, we are told. Good governance has become a show of power by the state or strength of partisan political will. The rule of law, transparency and accountability have become merely technical questions of administrative procedure or institutional design. Our politics and democratising processes are increasingly driven by indiscipline and an unbridled quest for power, not committed leadership. The masses’ involvement and expectation, fractured by a stagnant economy and a corrupt political class, still bear traces of an expansive view of government and unsustainable demands based on a sense of entitlement.

The world is producing over 300 million tonnes of plastic every year, 50 per cent of which is for single use, meaning it can be used for just a few moments but lasts several hundred years.

More than one conference is held every month in Ghana by governmental and non-governmental bodies on ways and means to end deforestation and fight climate change.

The Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, says the government probably will not ban the use of plastics in Ghana in the short term, as it will not be in the country’s best interest.
