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.

“I Won’t Spare Any Corrupt Gov’t Official, Past Or Present”-Prez Mills,

...but he did spare Muntaka President John Evans Atta Mills has warned that his government would not spare any government official be it past or present, who would be found guilty of embezzling state funds.

He added that as the President of the country, he would continue to be father to all by ensuring that the child, who went wrong, was punished.

President Mills asked Ghanaians to exercise restraint to enable his government works to stabilize the economy and urged them to contribute their quota to complement its efforts to secure a “better Ghana” for all.

President Mills made the remarks at a durbar of chiefs and people of Mankessim to round-of activities of the “Borbor Mfantse” festival and commended the people for embracing peace at last.

A large number of people from all walks of life joined in the celebration of the festival, which had not been celebrated for some years now due to a prolonged chieftaincy dispute in the area.

President Mills reassured Ghanaians that his administration would judiciously utilize the nation’s resources to improve upon the living conditions of all citizens.

He said his government was elected to serve the nation and would therefore ensure that the nation’s wealth, which is not for him or members of his administration, was well distributed.

The President also advised the people of Mankessim to eschew litigation and conflicts and instead forged ahead as one people with a common goal to develop their area. He stressed on the need for the elderly to inculcate love, peace, unity and hard work into Ghanaian children.

Ms Ama Benyiwa-Doe, the Regional Minister also advised the people to unite and let go the bickering and petty squabbles among them in order to redirect their energies into productive use to develop Mankessim.

Nana Amanfo Edu VI, Omanhen of Mankessim was unhappy that over the past 30 years, no President had attended the festival because of chieftaincy disputes which had affected the development of the area.

He expressed gratitude to President Mills for gracing the occasion and called for the cooperation of the people to help develop the town.

The Omanhene of Techiman in the Brong Ahafo Region, Oseadeoyo Ameyaw-Ekumfi IV, gave a brief historical relationship between Mankessim and Techiman and said that they were one people from the same area but litigation brought a separation among them.
