In 2001, the NPP administration under Kufuor furtively sold the GNPC’s drill ship and hid the deal from the public. In 2012, the NDC administration appointed the Sole Judgement Debt Commissioner to investigate matters related to the payment of judgement debts.
Now pinned to the wall, those involved in the stinking deal claimed the deal fetched 24 million Dollars and 19.5 million Dollars was doled out to the French company, Societe Generale as judgement debt (the exact amount is even in doubt).
Where did the rest of the money go? That’s the paramount question that the Sole Commission seeks answers for—assuming that what is claimed to have been paid the French company is even out of question yet.

I understand the Arabic-speaking half-Egyptian Mr. Sekou Nkrumah does not speak the Akan-Ghanaian majority language (or any other major Ghanaian language, for that matter), else I would have recited that Akan maxim which roughly translates into English as follows: "The wailing of a mother who just lost her child disturbs the peace and quiet of her neighbor." The obvious reference here, of course, is to the recent appearance of Mr. K. T. Hammond, the New Patriotic Party's Member of Parliament for Adansi-Asokwa, before the Judgment-Debt Commission, vis-a-vis the whereabouts of some $3.5 million, a part of the $24 million reportedly realized from the sale of a drillship formerly owned by the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC).

In any situation of significant human interaction, either professional or casual, there are bound to erupt conflicts and misunderstandings. What matters is how problems are resolved. Tackled constructively, both parties to a conflict are apt to mature emotionally and develop intellectually. Where matters are allowed to degenerate into resentment and enmity, the resulting damage can be physically irreparable and psychologically and emotionally devastating.

You can predict the future of a country without looking into a crystal ball. Just observe those in their teens and even younger; their thought processes, the way they spend their leisure and their healthy practices.

Just before handing over power to President J.A. Kufuor in January 2001, President Rawlings Stated thus “My conviction is that history, rather than the severe and at times, the unkind critics will be FAIR AND JUST TO ME”. Yes, that was Prophet Rawlings, as if he knew what lay in waiting for him and the great NDC after the handover, what was it? The NPP Government planned to kill him right from the day he left office in 2001 but they failed because his security network was always 500 miles ahead of the violent prone NPP-after-all, what do they know? At the end of the year 2000, Ghana had replaced one elected government with another.
