Quotes

"The shortfall in total revenue and grants was partly as a result of low disbursement of grants from our development partners and, mainly due to the lower than anticipated performance of domestic revenue" said Minister of Finance, Seth Terkper
...Photograph: NIC BOTHMA/EPA "What continues to handicap Africa is its lack of mastery of modern science. Without advanced competency, [African] nations cannot harness the full power of scientific research and technological tools to solve the many health, energy and development challenges confronting them" wrote Nkem Khumbah, a coordinator of the Stem-Africa Initiative, in The New York Times
...Monday at a ceremony to mark the beginning of the assessment of teachers for the 2014 National Best Teachers Award, Prof Jane Opoku-Agyemang said; "when we teach children in languages that they do not understand, teaching and learning do not take place and frustration begins to build. The inclusion of Ghanaian language is critical. It is important for learning. Sometimes, we compare ourselves unfavourably with countries like Malaysia and South Korea, but all these countries teach in their local languages."
9. "Options available to companies in the turbulent Ghanaian market include recapitalisation, strategic equity investment and Pan-African diversification, among others. Ownership of 100 per cent of a company worth GH¢10,000 is still GHc10,000 while owning 30 per cent of a company worth GH¢100,000 is GH¢30,000. Mark Zuckerberg owns only 22 per cent of Facebook but is worth $33billion. Selling equity or shares in your business spreads the risks and shares the rewards. Your best bet would be to craft agreements that do not totally wipe out your control." - Sangu Delle (Financial Optimisation - Repositioning for Growth)
