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.

Pratt Flays AMA On Decongestion

The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Mr. Kwesi Pratt who is also a leading member of the CJA, has castigated the Mills’ administration and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), for their handling of the decongestion exercise at the Central Business District of Accra.

The NDC, he said, took advantage of the hawker’s situation to use cheap communist tactics, as well as putting a spin on every aspect of the NPP government’s action towards a similar decongestion exercise, in order to win sympathy votes from eligible voters in the 2008 elections. “Why are you doing this to the hawkers”, he inquired. “Sacking them means collapsing their business and how would they make ends meet?” he asked.

According to him, some of these hawkers do not ply their trade on the pavements, yet the AMA still went ahead and sacked them.
“This is also their source of income so the government should quickly find a solution to it and allow them to operate,” he advised.
Pratt was speaking on Peace FM’s morning show, “Kokrokoo’ during a studio discussion on the AMA’s decongestion exercise to rid the city of hawkers, especially at Central Business District of Accra.
