Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

National Security sacks 160

Daily Guide has gathered that 160 National Security personnel reportedly employed between 2001 and 2008 have been penciled for dismissal and 70 of them were given their termination of appointment letters last week.

The dismissal letters were signed by the Ag. Deputy National Security Co-ordinator, K.D. Dankwa, and did not state the reason for the mass exercise or the criteria by which the recipients were selected.

A copy of the letters sighted by Daily Guide stated: “I wish to …inform you that the office will no longer require your services…. H.E. the President and the National Security Co-ordinator have asked me to convey to you their appreciation for your dedicated and loyal service to the Republic of Ghana.”

A number of the said workers who reside in government apartments have also been given quit notices and ordered to vacate the premise by end of this month or risk being thrown out with force.

Attempts by Daily Guide to reach the National Security Co-ordinator, Gbevlo Lartey, proved futile as he did not pick his phone and a sms text message sent to his phone number to book an interview was not replied.

Some of the affected workers who were stationed at the Castle said they were initially invited for interrogation after which they were reassigned to various national security offices nationwide.

They said during the interrogation, they were asked questions about their relation with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and what role they played during election 2008.

“About eight of us from the Castle who were employed between 2001 and 2008 have been left to work and some of them have even been promoted; they are the ones giving all sorts of information on which ex-minister is driving which car,” they alleged.
