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.

Re-activate Industries Established By Nkrumah - CPP tells Gov't

Mr. Samuel Kwabena Danso, Ashanti Regional Chairman of the Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP), has called on the Government to revamp industries established by Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

He mentioned the Jute and Shoe factories in Kumasi, the Asutuare Sugar factory, Bonsa Tyre factory, Kade biscuit factory and Bolgatanga meat factory, which have collapsed.

The CPP Regional Chairman in an interview with GNA in Kumasi on the achievements of Dr Nkrumah said: “if the Government because of financial constraints cannot get these factories running again, it should invite private investors.”

Mr Danso said the revival of these industries would not only increase Ghana’s foreign exchange earnings but also offer job openings to the large army of unemployed youth.

He said: “if past governments had recognized the legacy of Dr Nkrumah, things would have been better than they are today.”

Mr Danso said the Centenary Celebration of Dr Nkrumah’s birthday called for unity within the CPP, which was founded and led by the first President to enable the party to re-capture power.

He appealed to the youth of the country to join the CPP because their future depended on the fortunes of the party.

Mr Danso asked Ghanaians to exercise restraint with the National Democratic Congress Government so that it could have adequate time to implement its development agenda.
