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.

Don’t Push Us To The Wall Else…

bettyThe government of Ghana has expressed its disappointment in the Fast Track Division of an Accra High Court’s ruling which demands that the former foreign minister; Mr. Osei Adjei’s passport should be given to him.The Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Ebo Oduro who expressed the government’s feeling on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ morning show revealed that they will appeal against the court ruling.

According to him, government is unhappy and disagrees with the court ruling. He described the court’s judgement as “undue process” and cautioned it not to push them “to the wall” or else, they may adopt certain strict measures to deal with issues like Mr. Osei Adjei’s case. He was reacting to the court’s demands yesterday, that the BNI should release Mr. Osei Adjei’s passport to him. Mr. Osei Adjei sued the BNI for seizing his passport when they invited him to answer questions concerning the importation of rice during the NPP regime. The court ruled that it is against his fundamental right so his passport should be given to him. But the deputy Attorney General says the court decision is dangerous to the country’s democracy.

He said, although there are other procedures to adopt but those are long term so the best way to keep the latter in the country until investigations on him are completed is to keep his passport. According to him, Mr. Osei Adjei’s personality should be put aside and all the necessary measures adopted to investigate him properly like any ordinary suspect.
