Arguably Quata Budukusu is one of the best rappers and energetic stage performers of our time. After missing from the stage for some time and also for the fact that the fans have missed his magical stage craft, he is set to put up a come back stage performance during the Rush Energy street carnival at Wa, the capital city of the Upper West Region in the northern part of Ghana on Wednesday, 10th February, 2016 at the Nima Street.
Also on the bill to perform is Akyerekyerefo and Kwame Seseben and a number of artistes from the northern part of the country for the Rush Energy Wa Activation. The following will also be on the bill; Raphius, G.Kliff, Ras Badingu, Kawute, B.M.B, Wuchare, PH 1, Sumaya, and T.I.P.
According to Quata’s management, they are not doing this only for the people of Wa because it is a nationwide tour so obviously from Wa, Quata Budukusu will be storming other regions. They are therefore urging all the fans in the various regions of Ghana to keep their fingers crossed because Quata will soon be at their doorsteps.
In a reaction to a question on the motive behind the choice of Wa, spokesperson and the personal manager for Quata Budukusu, Mr. Tengol Kplemani stated “well, honestly speaking after serious deliberations by the team we ended on Wa for the reason being that Wa is the starting point of Ghana so we decided to begin from there and then later end in Accra’.
The concert, Rush Energy Wa Activation, is sponsored by one of the best energy drinks in the country, Rush Energy Drink in collaboration with Bakus Entertainment, the management of Quata Budukusu and Akyerekyerefo.
The producers of the Rush energy drink maintained they took a critical note of Quata’s previous performances and the kind of energy he exhibits on the stage hence the decision to support his nationwide tour.
Meanwhile, they also had a thought that if such an energetic person like Quata will perform to satisfy his fans then he needs a drink that will provide the energy and that is Rush Energy Drink. “We call on everyone in the Wa Township to come out and support Quata and friends as they thrill fans with the best of performances and remember, it is going down on Wednesday, 10th February, 2016 at Nima Street from 6pm till you drop” a closing remark from Rush Energy drink management team.
Wa Polytechnic had its general assembly meeting on Friday 11th of December 2015,many people were in attendance including observers. It was a very horrendous night as the SRC President by name Dapilah Samson from Jirapa Of Accountancy 3 who was also the chairman of the day and a Cashier at Wa Co-operative credit union was autocratic in decision making in the house. People were furious about his approach towards people who got up to contribute to a point on the floor to be debated upon. If one gets up to talk against a point then the person is asked to hand over the mic. Which was strange as the budget which had it’s figures inflated by the incumbent SRC Board was being questioned, no point made by the house was considered a valid point even to the extent of a broom being bought for GHC3.
The President in an angry tone replied to the Assembly:
“ I am here to take my HND And SRC Certificate and go away, we are not colleagues, to those my mates who meet me in class and behave towards me as if we are colleagues wait till you meet me in my hometown Jirapa, in a pool there you can compare yourself to me, if any one should interrupt a conversation here the next place you will find yourself is in your house very soon I will be the deputy director at Wa Co-Operative Credit Union”.
This Annoyed The house, a Reviewed constitution introduced to the house full of grammatical errors was amended without assembly approving it.

The Interior Ministry has disclosed of plans to allow inmates across the nation’s prisons access to their relatives and legal counsels as part of efforts to improve the welfare needs of inmates. The move, according to the sector minister is also to facilitate communication between inmates and their relatives while in custody. Many have been cited as the challenges facing inmates in the various prisons which some believe have partly contributed to reducing the confidence in the ability of the prisons to reform offenders. Some of these challenges include; issues of overcrowding, inaccessibility to legal services, among others. Although some interventions have been put in place by the state and other Civil Society Organisations to address such issues, there is still more to do to improve the situation. Announcing the new directive which is currently on a pilot basis, Mark Woyongo also indicated that use of the technology will be closely monitored. He however maintained that the mechanism comes at no cost to government.

The Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Henry Wampah has dismissed media reports that the country’s current debt stock means the country has declined back to a Highly Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) status. Dr. Wampah insisted that though the country’s debt stock has reached an alarming rate of GH¢ 94.5 billion, more than 70% of GDP, it still does not mean Ghana is now HIPC. Dr. Wampah explained that it is only
government that can declare Ghana HIPC. He said “to go in HIPC is a conscious decision by a country” and not just on assertions. “You can say that it [Ghana’s debt] has reached levels of pre-HIPC levels but you can’t say we are HIPC. To go HIPC is a decision by government, it’s not automatic that at some level you should go HIPC.” Dr. Wampah said a lot of analysis go into a decision by a country to go HIPC saying, “its not based on GDP analysis.” He was speaking on Monday at the central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee press conference.
