Politico
The Ghanaian republican constitution guarantees the freedom of thought, conscience and speech of every Ghanaian. In 2000, Ghana took great strides in securing this all important freedom by repealing the criminal libel law which had been used to incarcerate a number of journalists in the past. Some twenty years after the repeal of this law, the Ghanaian media space has seen great strides. We have set up a politically focused news and analysis organization that will cover politics and policy in Ghana. The site and other platforms will be the go to for everything politics in Ghana in a bid to give readers a rare insight into the inner workings of Ghana’s political setup. Politicogh aims to be the dominant source for news on politics and policy in power centers across this country with an eye for reliable journalism.
