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.

Three EGLE Executives defect to NDC

Three National Executives of the EGLE party, Alhaji Alhasan Bene, National Chairman, Mr Jacob Letsyor, first National Vice Chairman and Ms Cecilia Akwertey, National Women Organizer, on Friday resigned from the party and defected to the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The three described their action as "official home-coming" to strengthen the NDC's hold on political power and assume mainstream political role within the ruling party.Alhaji Bene made the declaration on behalf of the group at a press conference in Accra attended by some supporters of EGLE and NDC.

He said as leading political personalities in the country "we must continue to play active role in shaping the democratic destiny of Ghana through the EGLE Party we have served the nation and the NDC behind the scenes but now is the time to move to the front roll.""We want to officially join forces with our brothers and sisters in the NDC to strengthen the structures of the party into formidable and viable political machinery with better prospects for winning the 2012 general election," he said.

He said most members of the EGLE Party are tired of being attached to the apron strings of the NDC that used them for election purposes and thereafter abandoned them.Alhaji Bene reminded members of the party that the principles that led to the formation of EGLE in 1992 are no longer tenable "we must therefore come home and work assiduously towards strengthening the NDC to maintain power in Election 2012."

Meanwhile, the Eagle party would hold a special two-day brainstorming conference to discuss the internal and external political relations of the party, prospects for the future and adopt measures to reactive its structures.
