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.

Nana Akkufo Addo Celebrates Nkrumah

Nana Akufo Addo
2008 PRESIDENTIAL Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo has penned a birthday message in honour of the centenary birthday celebration of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President.

Nana Akufo-Addo sees the occasion as appropriate for Ghanaians in particular and Africans in general to join hands to honour “one of Africa’s most important and celebrated personalities, who contributed significantly in shaping the direction and destiny of the continent and its people in the twentieth century.”

He says: “This centenary celebration should help us revive our can-do spirit as a people with a manifest destiny for greatness. Let us use this period to renew our commitment to the need for the rapid unification of the continent as the most effective means of enhancing the well-being of Africa and her role in the world.” Nana Akufo-Addo adds” “But, we should also use this opportunity for a sober reflection on our painful past for the purposes of strengthening our faith in the principles of development in freedom, individual liberty, individual prosperity, the rule of law, respect for human rights and the institutions of liberal democracy.

“Let us use this event to honour the collective contribution of our forebears, including Kwame Nkrumah, to Ghana’s independence struggle and the inspiration that he gave to our brothers and sisters in the rest of colonized Africa,” he said.
