Commentary, Oct 24, Ghanadot - A nation like Ghana, with dependency on the agricultural sector and yet to acquire a patent of any worth of its own under the GMO regime, must not sit for multi-national to gobble up rights to seeds found within her boundaries.

But before the prayers are spoken, please note a common adage:  It is only the idiot who makes God nervous about His own creation. I hope progress does not require us to be idiots first .
