One Drugs Trader A Real And Present Danger

After three years based in England, Kwame Mainu was looking forward to returning to Ghana and settling with his wife, Comfort, in her house in Nhyiasu, the old colonial quarter of Kumasi. While working on a programme linking Kumasi University with Warwick University in England, Kwame had been forced to become involved in helping to prevent a Kumasi-based drugs cartel recruiting couriers from Ghanaian academics visiting Warwick. International collaboration in fighting the drugs trade had been thwarted by the Rawlings government’s apparent involvement. However, with the approach of the new millennium, and the completion of his two terms as president, there were good prospects of J J Rawlings standing down and a democratic election bringing to power the party once led by Kwame’s father’s hero Kofi Busia.

The new millennium offered hope of a new start in national governance which could include a radical change in attitude towards drugs trading. Kwame expected that a reformed administration would present an opportunity for negotiating an international treaty between Ghana and the UK in line with Leon’s ideas. While he supported such a move in principle, Kwame had no interest in any direct involvement and had made it clear to Leon that his aim was total retirement from the service. He had no intention of remaining a sleeping agent, or serving in any other reserve capacity. Kwame realised that he had many blessings to count and his outlook appeared rosier than at any time in the past. Wherever his mind turned he could discern only one dark menace: Peter Sarpong.

After Peter Sarpong’s early release from prison in the UK and repatriation to Ghana, Kwame had hoped that finding no compatriots left in the Kumasi cartel, Peter would settle for a quiet life in retirement, as Bra Yaw and Kofi Boateng had done. He had hoped that like Kofi Adjare, Peter would have no interest in working with the camel herders, Adjare’s name for the Lebanese directors of the Hanabis company. However, much to Kwame’s horror, Peter seemed intent on reviving the old cartel and rebuilding the Ghanaian involvement in the courier and distributive functions. He showed no aversion to continuing to work with the Hanabis directors. Even more sinister was Peter’s lust for revenge as visited upon Akos Mary for her involvement in his conviction and imprisonment. By this action Peter had shown himself to be a real and present danger.

Kwame suspected that he and his family might be in danger of violent retribution if Peter ever became aware of Kwame’s own involvement in his detection and arrest, or the imprisonment of his Uncle George, which led to Uncle George’s death in Nsawam Prison. While Kwame’s future prospects of a comfortable and fulfilling life in Ghana looked secure in almost every way, he knew that his mind could never be fully at rest as long as Peter Sarpong remained at liberty.

How to Present Powerpoint Presentations

I know that you are nervous about your presentation and desire to do well. The only thing that you need to keep in your mind is to get the presentation done in a format that makes things easier for you to flow with the subject you are presenting. One of the scariest forms of presenting is by PowerPoint. The ironic thing about this form of presenting is that PowerPoint presentations are the easiest to present. The reason is because you are just organizing slides that coincide with your presentation. The real reason why anyone would be nervous is because of the presentation itself; not the PowerPoint.

Presenting a PowerPoint presentation is not the most excruciating thing in the world. In fact all you have to do is read what is on the board and allow the slides to do the entertaining, since you can add animations and other forms of entertainment on the slides. All you have to do is present the information on the slides and make sure that you elaborate on what is being presented. This is pretty much all you have to do when it comes to using the PowerPoint. It’s not really rocket science. It’s just a matter of you taking your time.

Depending on what type of computer that you are using, you will need to make sure that you give yourself some time before the presentation to get the necessary tools that you will need in order to make the meeting a successful one.
