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.

Ato Ahwoi hacks Spio, accuses him of being egoistic

A leading member of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Ato Ahwoi says Dr. Ekow Spio-Garbrah has gotten out of hand and must be brought to order.

He said the former Communications Minister in the previous NDC government under Jerry Rawlings, has been making churlish arguments, posing as the most intelligent member of the ruling party.

“I am telling Spio Gabrah that he is not the only intelligent man in the world, Spio Garbrah is not the only intelligent man in the NDC,” Mr Ahwoi told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show host Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah.

He was confirming a letter he wrote in response to criticisms at President Mills and his government by Mr Spio-Garbrah in a number of articles published in the state-owned Daily Graphic.

Mr Ahwoi said Dr Spio-Garbrah since 1993, had consistently ridiculed President Mills and wondered why he (Spio-Garbrah) thought the president would appoint him to serve in his government.

He accused the former NDC presidential candidate aspirant of being the brain behind scurrilous text messages before the NDC’s presidential primaries that then candidate Mills was not medically fit to lead the party into the epic 2008 presidential elections.

“It was he Spio-Garbrah who started a rumour that President Mills will die before the 2008 elections. He sent a text message to President Rawlings,” raising those concerns, he emphasized.

'Unruly' member

The heavyweight in the NDC described Dr Spio-Garbrah as an ‘unruly’ star player who needs to be dropped for the good of the team. “When footballers cannot be controlled in the dressing room, it is better to drop them,” he emphasized.

Mr Ahwoi believes the CEO of The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation is egoistic and must not be included in the president’s team.

He said team players make things work and “Spio-Garbrah is not a team player,” advising that Dr Spio-Garbrah must learn to be a team player if he wants to be considered for appointment into the Mills’ government.

He however stated without equivocation, that if the president sought his counsel, he would strongly advise against giving Dr Spio-Grabrah any position in the government – now or in the future.

When Dr Spio-Garbrah was reached for his reaction, he said he had not received Mr Ahwoi’s letter and that he would respond appropriately upon receipt of it.
