, (Ghana Daily On-Line Times), is managed by the Emerging Media Institute, Ghana.  It is the premier news source for breaking news on Ghana and also an outlet for video expressions from Ghanaians in the Diaspora.


Our philosophy:


Ghanadot has the intention to contribute to the social/political discourse on Ghana.  As part of our mission, we extend the same service to matters concerning the African world because if it touches Ghana, it touches Africa.  We are pan-African in outlook.

We maintain, as purveyors of news in a developing nation such as ours, that emphasis on the positive matters; that much is bound to happen that is yet to be categorized, understood and passed on as information to the world. We believe that highlighting the positive, rather than the sensational helps.


Method of approach

Our pages are refreshed daily.


Our prevailing interest is that you get the news first from our pages. We publish original articles as well as aggregate and amplify news items that have universal messages pertaining to our existential interests by providing links to their sources on the web.


Another is our wish and assurance that articles brought to our pages are informative, educational and entertaining - above the gory detailed level of mere scandal driven prurient reportage.


We have added video contents to our pages. Your personal videos, if they meet our publication standards and requirements, can be seen on our VIDEO page.


Also, Citizen Journalists in the Diaspora and at home can submit their news items and opinion pieces for publication.:  We are always seeking citizen journalists. Opinion pieces and breaking news in your part of the world will be considered and published should they meet our requirements.


Note:  Articles from the above sources must be professionally written, fact-and spell-checked. We offer NO financial compensation at this time, only the opportunity to show your work, which may lead to rewarding opportunities for you later as a writer. 


We will assume, by submitting your work to us, that the work is ORIGINAL and not in violation of any existing creative work agreements.


All reasonable requests for publication of articles submitted - opinions or rejoinders - will be considered as an input and will be acted upon expeditiously. 


All requests have to be submitted through a valid email address and signed with verifiable phone number included in the mail. Even so, and essentially more, we declare here that we are not responsible for errors in opinions in articles submitted to us and published.


To our readership and contributors:


We may inadvertently publish a story that may not be factual or be linked to one that is also not. Please feel free in that event to write a rejoinder or ask for  removal of the item.
