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.

NDC youth accuse chairman of embezzlement

Some National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters from the Ledzokuku constituency in Accra are accusing the regional chairman of embezzling funds for party activities.

They say Danny Annang has failed to account for over 31,000 euros sent from an NDC member in Austria during the 2008 elections.

The group, which came to Joy FM with receipts covering the said money, said several attempts to get some explanations from the chairman have proved futile.

Spokesperson Ernest Frimpong disclosed to Joy News that Mr. Annang is not fit to seek re-election unless he accounts for the monies received last year.

“I have in my hand documents that tell me that during the elections [2008], he was sent money from Austria to support the party’s election,” Mr Frimpong said.

The supporters allege Mr Annang is using the money to put up a storey building in the constituency, a situation they say gives cause for suspicion.

But Mr Annang has denied receiving any monies for party activities. Speaking to Joy News, he said such malicious stories fabricated by his opponents will not affect his chances in a pending elections.

“I have not received anything from any quarters, whatsoever,” he told Joy News’ Elvis Adjetey.

He shot down suggestions that the accusations could affect his chances in the elections slated for Tuesday 29 December.
