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.

Is the NDC government led by Fiifi Atta Mills doing enough?

Since the premix fuel shortage begun the President has not told Ghanaians what he is doing about the premix fuel problem which is preventing fishermen from going to sea despite their threat to hit the streets to demonstrate their displeasure over the shortage of the fuel. More importantly the President and his ministers have so far not shown any sign that they are in control of the economy.

Since taking office, inflation has been soaring hitting 20% in May. Fuel prices are higher today than they used to be 6 months ago.

Unemployment is rising steadily with companies like Vodafone promising to slash over 950 jobs. Our currency the Cedi has lost more than 30% of its value putting prices of commodities beyond the reach of ordinary Ghanaian.

Simply put can Ghanaians associate President Mills' administration with a new project, programme or even maintainance of conditions that was existing before he took office? All that we have been hearing from the President are complaints of debts, confiscation of cars which are relatively less important compared to the many daunting problems confronting Ghanaians today.
I am not saying confiscating stolen state assets or asking former ministers to account for their stewardship are not important, what I am saying is that it should not take 80 to 90% of government time, energy and resources.

Is the government doing enough to help Ghanaians out of their predicaments?
Have your say here.
