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.

“It Will Be Suicidal To Drop Akufo Addo”

nanaThe Member of Parliament for Ayawaso Central, Hon. Sheikh I. C. Quaye, has warned the NPP faithfuls that it will be suicidal to drop the party’s 2008 presidential aspirant, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo for any other person as flagbearer in 2012. Speaking to Peace FM in an interview after the Annual Delegates Conference, he said “it has never happened in the party’s history, that a first time contender crossed the 49% mark.”

He further stated that this was “an achievement on Nana Addo’s part,” as such the party should consider him again to lead them in the 2012 elections. In a rather ebullient and cock-sure manner, the Ayawaso Central MP asserted that, “victory lies like a diamond in the mine for the NPP in 2012, if Nana Addo is picked as the party’s flagebearer.”

The former Greater Accra Regional Minister, however, minced no words when he declared that “the NPP was too complacent” in last year’s General Elections. He also conceded that last year’s 17 Presidential aspirants, “did more harm than good to the Party and that should not be repeated,” adding that “it is high time everything is put aside to concentrate on making the party’s amendments work.”
