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.

Govt to punish Ex- Ministers - Asiedu Nketsia

Johnson Aseidu Nkestia, General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), has cautioned former President John Agyekum Kufuor and other high profile members of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) that the Mills led administration would be forced to haul former government functionaries of the erstwhile NPP administration to Court if the current vilification of the President should continue.

On his part, if it were not to be the forgiven heart of President Mills, majority of ex- ministers in the Kufour administration would have being in jail by now.

He stressed that, “the government will be compelled to take stringent measures to silence NPP members who are bent on maligning the NDC administration.”

Mr Asiedu Nkestia, who is popularly referred to as ‘general mosquito’ in political circles stated these when addressing thousands of NDC faithful today at the Tain Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region.

He was travelling with the President on his first visit to the Region since assuming office.

Making specific reference to the interview ex-President Kufuor granted to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), he said most ex-ministers in the former NPP regime have used several platforms handed them to lash at the NDC administration instead of commending government for maintaining peace and stability.

Continuing, he disclosed that some NDC members have persistently been calling on the President to treat former government officials the same way NDC members were treated by the NPP when they exited office in after the 2000 election.

He stressed that “Whatever members of the NPP resort to, they can not stop the wheel of justice from running,” adding that “They should (former NPP ministers) be prepared to account for their stewardship if they are called upon to do so.”

But, in a sharp rebuttal on a private radio station Citi Fm, the Member of Parliament for Asokwa in the Ashanti Region, Maxwell Kofi Jumah a.k.a Kofi Ghana described the latter’s comment as unfortunate and barbaric.

He said not a floor member of the NPP will be obsessed by the comments of Mr Aseidu Nkestia , adding ‘we are to prepare to meet the anywhere.”

He said “We all know that this man speaking is a joker so i don’t see the reason we should take this man serious when he talking,” adding that ‘he should pack off.’
