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.

Haruna Iddrisu To Step Down

Haruna Iddrisu
The National Youth Organiser of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Haruna Iddrisu, has indicated that he will step down and allow other young people to take up the position.

He explained that having served in that capacity for two terms, he would not seek re-election because there were other young people in the party who could equally contribute meaningfully to its growth. Mr Iddrisu, who is also the Minister of Communications and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, disclosed this at the .inauguration of the University for Development Studies (UDS) branch of the Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TElN) of the NDC in Tamale.

He lauded the efforts of President Mills in appointing young people to take up some sensitive positions in the Government. Mr Iddrisu entreated the youth to keep the party's structures alive and always defend the party with the necessary facts. He called on the youth to avoid all forms of violence and acts of lawlessness in order to promote peace in the country.

According to him, the future of the country was in their hands, hence there was a need for the youth to avoid creating unnecessary tension in the country. He equally entreated the youth to exercise restraint while the Government rolled out its programmes. The Deputy Northern Regional Minister, Mr Moses Mabengba, charged members of TEIN to engage in intellectual debate with their opponents. He observed that the Government had so far chalked up some successes, but expressed concern about the propaganda executed by the NDC's political opponents, especially the New Patriotic Party.
