Ghanaians are expected to observe today as a National Day of Fasting and Prayers to seek God’s intervention in the fight against COVID-19, following the appeal from President Akufo-Addo on Sunday.

All of Ghana’s borders – land, sea and air – have been closed to all forms of human traffic for the next two weeks, effective from midnight Sunday into Monday.

The Minority in Parliament has waded into the debate over the intended closure of Neoplan (Ghana) Ltd, set for 31 January.

What was supposed to be a civil and peaceful protest yesterday, led by the National Democratic Congress to demand that the Electoral Commission rethink its decision to compile a fresh voters’ register before this December’s general election, turned into an orgy of insults hurled at key figures in the Electoral Commission (EC), as well as President Akufo-Addo and other leading members of the governing New Patriotic Party.

The Federal Republic of Germany, under its “Compact with Africa” programme, has given the Government of Ghana €250 million to upgrade and expand the country’s electricity transmission infrastructure.
