Host, Samson Ayenini sat with his panelists to discuss a number of topical issues.

Key amongst them were the growing trend of Tramadol abuse among Ghanaian youth in some parts of the country.

Focus was also on the postponement of a proposal by the governing NPP to elect MMDCEs. The postponement has heightened suggestions that the government will not be able to implement its campaign promise to reduce the President's powers in local governance.

But government’s key defence has been that the process faces constitutional and legal hurdles which need more time to be addressed.

The row over payment of National Health Insurance Service (NHIS) debt was also discussed as the Minority in Parliament has challenged claims by the president that government had cleared a whopping 1 billion cedis from the NHIS debt it inherited from the erstwhile John Mahama administration.
