The New Iamaghanaian Dot Com 2

Just a stone throw away from achieving the greatest feat amongst many others, your immediate visit to the new iamaghanaian website shouldn’t be a waste of your time. You would notice amongst many new feats a new chat bar ( which I’ve been dying to inform you) which features an online game with tons and tons of challenging GAMES arranged under different categories.

I will be very reluctant to talk to you about other new additions to the website but what i am dying to spill out is iamaghanaian wouldn’t just be your normal ghanaian social network but a place to search and post jobs, play & chat with friends, meet other ghanaians via our dating application, listen or upload ghanaian music etc. etc. etc.

The team is very much overwhelmed with their work improving the old website into a new dynamic social portal for ghanaians both home and abroad. But did i mention their courage grew when user visite continued to increase? I guess i just did.

Out of the old comes the new so we left some old features unchanged including the online market now called “Markola”. E-shopping: Shop online even overseas.

We are inviting you to spread the word as we build a better Ghanaian through a greater online presence. Join iamaghanaian now or tell your friend if you are already a member.

Meet you there!

This appeal went out from the Ghana Hotels Association at the recent National Executive Committee Meeting. I once sat at this table. I wish I did now, because would I have ever voiced my disapproval. In essence the Association requested that the government “review the 5% revenue authority tax on hotels and release the members of the multiple taxes imposed on them.”

The 5% revenue authority tax is the income tax paid here in Ghana!

The reason? Hotels apparently are having a hard time paying all the required levies, taxes, rates etc. as well as maintaining their establishments.

Can ya believe it? No, not the 5% representing the total income tax paid, but the part about being exempted from taxes!

Taxes represent a social contract between government and the people; and for a whole industry to plead for exemption indicates just how poorly most establishments are doing and how little…

Death! The President Of the Republic of Ghana: Prof. Evans John Atta Mills is D E A D

Prof John Evans Atta Mills, President of the Republic of Ghana is dead according to reliable information reaching Image
The President died on Tuesday afternoon after suffering from a long battle with sickness.

His death occurred at the 37 Military hospital in Accrca.

Prof John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills was born on 21st July 1944 and was Sixty Eight-years-old (68-years-old).

He was the third and current President of the Fourth Republic of Ghana and was inaugurated on the 7th of January 2009, having defeated the ruling party candidate Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2008 election.

He was Vice-President from 1997 to 2001 under President Jerry John Rawlings, and stood unsuccessfully in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections as the candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He recently returned from a nine day medical check-up in the United States.

Prior to his trip to the U.S of A on June 16th, questions had been asked about the whereabouts of the president after he had not been seen in public for close to two weeks whilst communal violence ravaged parts of the country.

After a successful routine medical checkup in New York, H.E the President of the Republic of Ghana arrived home at about 12:45pm on Monday 25th June, 2012 to a rousing welcome.

Before his departure to the USA, President Mills quashed rumours of his death when he addressed the media. He also stated that he is going for a “routine check-up” and will be “away for a few days.”

In a formal notice to Parliament, President Mills said he will be away in the US until June 25, 2012.

Details of the Presidential notice were read to MP’s during Tuesday’s sitting of the House by the first Deputy Speaker, Hon Edward Doe Adzaho, who presided over proceedings.

The President’s letter read: “In accordance with Article 59 of the Constitution of Ghana, I write to inform you that I shall be away in the US from Saturday, 16 June to Monday 25 June, 2012 for a routine medical check-up.

“During my absence the Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E John Dramani Mahama, shall in accordance with Article 60 (8) of the Constitution act in my stead. Kindly accept, Right Honourable the assurances of my highest consideration.


Prof. John Evans Atta Mills,

President of the Republic of Ghana.

This was his last letter to parliament prior to his “routine check-up” in the United States of America.

Condolences to all Ghanaians and his family from
