In parliamentary and some semi-presidential systems, a dissolution of parliament is the dispersal of a legislature at the call of an election. Usually, a legislature in such a system must be dissolved on the expiration of a constitutionally specified term. Early dissolutions are allowed in many jurisdictions.


Student parliamentarians who seek to become the next crop of leaders of the House were given the opportunity to lobby, before the Rt. Hon. Speaker of the House. Rt Hon. Speaker Fredrick Kofi Tse, rolled out the carpet for the commencement of the day’s business.

Some personalities graced the occassion: The Principal of the institution, the SRC president, departmental presidents, SRC and NUGS president elect, some delegates from the National Youth Authority(NYA) and a lot more.

The clerk(Miss. Nkum Naana Agyeiwaa Eunice) was given the opportunity to educate the House on some parliamentary proceedings which the House had adopted and were wrong. She said, “Rt. Hon. Speaker and the house” is incorrect , the correct form is “Rt Hon.  Speaker,  Mr.Speaker/Madam Speaker.” This is because he/she is the same person who chairs the House. She also made it known that, the majority leader before moving a motion, should talk about what the motion entails briefly before it is seconded by a member of the minority caucus.

The Rt. Hon. Speaker in his last speech highlighted some of the achievements they have been able to achieve as ranking members and a House as a whole. Some of these included; advocacy on early release of exams timetable, lightening system on campus, opening of lecture halls in the evenings during examinations, non-payment of the extra GH¢12 SRC dues, etc. He also made mention that on the advice of the Principal and the Vice Dean of Students, the House has been able to set up a Students’ Bar Association; which was inaugurated at the sitting. This is to help groom student lawyers and facilitate the steering of student affairs.

The guest speaker, Prof. Albert Luguterah (Principal of the School), had a few thoughts to share. He admitted that the House behaves and showcases high sense of maturity just like the “real parliamentarians.” Prof. Luguterah being ready to engage students at all times, believes that students are stakeholders,  that is why they are given the right to share ideas at the highest decision making body of the institution.

On his last submission, the Principal assured the House that he would see to the smooth running of the campus but that is not dependent on him solely, “everyone of you has a role to play” he added.  He ended by saying that the engagement of students in extra-curricular activities is a key thing, thus he is looking forward to seeing a lot more of students engaging in them, for there is more to education than reading textbooks.

Why Yvonne Nelson Did Not Attend John Dumelo’s Wedding

Over the weekend, actor John Dumelo had his white wedding at Royal Senchi and that had been one of the most trending news till now.

Several celebrities trooped to the event grounds to support the couple but one person missing in action was his ex bestie Yvonne Nelson.

From the pictures and videos circulating online, we had seen Nadia Buari who happened to be the main bride’s maid, Yvonne Okoro, Sandra Ankobiah, Jackie Appiah and several others.

Yvonne Nelson who was missing even though she was in the country sent a very strong message across. Were they fighting thus she didn’t go? Were there issues between the two so John didn’t invite her?

Well, according to Yvonne Okoro, John invited Yvonne Nelson to his white wedding but there was a family emergency and she had to cancel at the last minute.

That’s what Yvonne Okoro explained to a fan who asked why her colleague Yvonne Nelson was nowhere to be found.

Even if Yvonne Nelson had an emergency to attend to, it’s been almost 48 hours after the event but she hasn’t made a single post to congratulate her bosom friend John but she has made a series of posts both on her Instagram page and story.

This is where we think there is something wrong; the two paddies might probably be quarreling thus she didn’t attend his wedding and hasn’t posted anything yet. Let’s see if she will post eventually.

Here’s a screenshot of Yvonne Okoro telling a fan the reason why Yvonne Nelson couldn’t make it to John’s wedding.

PREMPEH COLLEGE 2018/19 PREFECTS GIVES BACK TO PREMPEH COLLEGE

Published

It seems to be a characteristic of all those who have the green blood flowing through them because what they seem to have very little difficulty in doing aside great academics and well behaved gentlemen, they seem to find a way to always give back. One may ask whether Prempeh College teaches “donation” as part of its major courses because everyone seems to have passed the test.
What happened this time round?

It seems the prefects of the 2018/2019 academic year have proved to be really worthy of that title.
The team as part of its hand over decided to show its sports men gratitude for beating their rivals(Opoku Ware School) and all other schools in Ashanti Region and proving that Prempeh College comes first and is never second to anyone in any competition.

The Prefects were grateful to the sports men for winning the Inter-Colleges but were more than overwhelmed when they topped it up with winning the Superzonals which had been one title the college had been waiting for a long time.
The 2018/2019 team of prefects launched their project to show its rivals how a project looks when we talk of internal house affairs which usually excluded aesthetics.
The team of Prefects led by the Domestic Headboy, Snr. Neizer Dennis Kofi and Senior House Prefect, Snr. Boansi Divine; launched the donation of jerseys with a football match on the 13th of April, 2019 on the College Stadium.
The Prefects had gone through a balloting for the various team members led by various captains who happen to be Snr. Agyemang Akwasi Prempeh (College Prefect I), Snr. Nti Darkwah Koduah (College Prefect II), Snr. Neizer Dennis Kofi (College Prefect III) and Snr. Divine Boansi (College Prefect IV). Who upon their great prestige, decided to sweat it all out to defend their teams and lead them to victory.

The matches were tough as most of the prefects seemed to have hidden strength and skill stored up in a bank waiting for an opportunity to unleash them under a wonderful project such as this. After four (4) hours of football, good music and commentary, the captain of the side; Snr. Neizer Dennis Kofi, won the tournament after beating Team Divine 5-4 on a penalty shootout.
Winning Captain and Project’s Manager, Snr. Neizer tells us “we know our boys are very good in the field of sports but we really want to prove ourselves better by making sure we provide all the facilities the sports men need to help us excel in all the fields leaving nothing out. As such, we have realized we have fallen short in the field of soccer and deem it fit to try with all resources possible to better that side of our great sports department. I hope those boys over there will learn to make the engine run better without “huffing and puffing” rather than trying to spray the vehicle itself with a different colour. I pray this initiative goes a long to motivate my seniors to do more and also serve as an excellent template for the next batch of prefects to also translate from. Thank you”
Speaking in a meeting with the headmaster, the Prefects were happy that their kind gesture was upheld by the whole College body which came to support during the match to make everything successful. Above all, they are happy about the unity that was created and pray that this becomes a humble beginning to a longer flight of stairs towards greatness.

We wish all the final years a successful WASSCE in the few weeks ahead as they round up their stay on campus.
