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.

President J.E.A Mills has received a special envoy from the Guinea President, Capt. Mousa Kamara at the Castle, Osu.

The envoy, Hon. Alexander Cece Loua who is also the Foreign Minister and Guineans Abroad also discussed the contents of the message with the President.

Mr. Loua extended warm greetings from Capt. Mousa Kamara.

Mr. Loua said Guinea is going through difficult times following the coming into office of a new administration and explained that Guinea is facing serious security challenges and to make matters worse, drug barons are fighting the state in several forms making control of the state a difficult one.

Mr. Loua said as a result of this general insecurity, people of all backgrounds are attacked from time to time, and it is in this atmosphere that the Ghanaian Ambassador to Guinea, H.E. Dominic Aboagye was attacked last week.

Mr. Loua said when news broke of the attack on the Ambassador, government officials and other high security officials of the Guinean Government visited the Ambassador and assured him of the support of the government.

The President of Guinea also instituted an investigation into the attack as soon as it came to his notice, and the Prime Minister also had an emergency Cabinet meeting on the matter the following morning. Mr. Loua said that the attack against the Ghanaian Ambassador was an act by elements out of control.

Mr. Loua said he had come to Ghana to offer the regrets and apologies of the President of Guinea and hoped that President Mills would accept it. He also said that he hoped Ghana would stand by Guinea in this difficult time of transition.

President Mills in response said he was glad the Guinean leader sent an envoy to see him on the matter and said that the visit by the envoy will help clear all doubts about the Guinean government’s concern for the welfare of the Ambassador.

President Mills said he hoped this will not happen again, and urged President Kamara to take steps to resolve the challenges facing Guinea, adding that Ghana will not do anything to undermine the good relationship that exist between Ghana and Guinea.

President Mills said Ghana accepts the explanations offered by the special envoy unreservedly and promised Ghana’s readiness to share her experiences in democracy with Guinea.
