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.

Accra, Aug. 14, GNA - The Christian Council of Ghana on Friday expressed regret about recent events surrounding the former Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mr Stephen Asamoah Boateng and the Bureau of National Investigations and called for peace.

A statement signed by the Reverend Fred Deegbe, General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, said it had also noted with regret the loss of life and the alleged treatment of his wife and legal counsel on Thursday.

"We believe that citizens should be treated with honour and dignity in accordance with the law and due process, as we seek justice and accountability," it said.

The Christian Council of Ghana noted with concern the "culture of vendetta that seems to be taking root in our country" and called on the government and various leaders "to eschew this so that we can live in peace and progress and be the truly democratic and lawful country we seek to be".

One of the NPP supporters who converged at the Greater Accra Regional Office of the BNI to protest the detention of Mr Boateng is reported dead after inhaling teargas fired by the police to control the crowd.

Mr Asamoah Boateng and his wife have been in several tussles with the BNI leading to the security agencies preventing them from travelling abroad.
