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.

Let’s Blame Ourselves – NDC Organiser


The Deputy National Organiser of the NDC, Opanyin Yaw Boateng Gyan has admitted that the various political parties, especially the two leading parties (the NDC and NPP) should be blamed for the various acts of violence reported during from the just ended Akwatia re-run election which took place on 18th August 2009. The election which crowned the NPP Candidate, Dr Kofi Asare as winner last Sunday, saw some violence in the area. One party leader had his nose broken while others had their cars smashed, including that of the minority leader, Hon Kyei-Mensah Bonsu.

According to the Deputy Organiser, the various parties especially NPP and NDC, did not behave well because of their failure to educate their supporters or caution them against violence. He said thus, “let’s not apportion blame on anybody, I’m part of it, we must blame ourselves, because we’re the cause.”

Opanyin Yaw Boateng was speaking on Peace FM’s morning show “Kokrokoo”, in reaction to the blame levelled against the NDC by the General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Ohene Ntow, that they (NDC) were the cause of the reported acts of violence in Akwatia which compelled the government to impose curfew on the township. However, the elections became successful later on, and the people chose the NPP candidate, Dr Kofi Asare to be their Member of Parliament (MP).
