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.

Avorka rubbishes recent anti-government demonstration

Ho, Aug 10, GNA - Mr Cletus Avorka, Minister of the Interior has rubbished the recent anti-government demonstration, supposedly to draw attention to the hard economic circumstances of Ghanaians, as a gimmick that would not stand any logic. He was addressing a durbar of security personnel in Ho as part of his two-day visit to institutions under his ministry in the Volta Region.

Mr Avorka said going by the lamentations of former President John Agyekum Kufuor that the four-year term was too short to make a big impression on the problems of the country, being judgmental on the six months of the current government was mischievous.

He said the time of politics was over now and that Ghanaians must face realities and work in unity to tackle to problems of the country. Mr Avorka who deviated from his main subject of welfare of the security services said such gimmicks as demonstrated by the street action erodes the confidence of the general public in politicians.

He said there was no need to play to the gallery because it would be taking the people for a ride, saying, between now and the next three and half years, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government would have a better story to tell Ghanaians.
