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’m still at post and actually in my office, claims ‘sacked’ confiscated vehicles boss

The Chairman of the Confiscated Vehicles Committee (VHC), Carl Wilson, alleged to have been booted out of office, has denied the claim.

On phone to Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sεn current affairs programme, he told host Nana Kwabena Bobie Ansah that those proclaiming his sack from office are only propagating lies.

The Daily Guide newspaper reported Monday morning that Carl Wilson and his deputy, Nana Olivier, had been shown the exit. Moments ahead of Carl Wilson’s claim, Daily Guide Editor Fortune Alimi also spoke on the Asempa FM programme and reiterated the publication as well as add that his information was that Carl Wilson had been turned away from his office at the Tema Port when he reported for duty Monday morning.

But Carl Wilson said he was speaking directly from his office and indeed was having a meal after going round his duties. He was also surprised anyone could report that he had been sent away from his office when he met with no resistance whatsoever.

He also knows vividly why such a campaign to get him out of office was running. He said those seeking his removal are doing so because they see him as a block to certain corrupt practices that went on at the port. He said some of them are hell bent on getting him out and have told him openly that he cannot deprive them of their source of livelihood for so many years.

Carl Wilson however vowed to fight on, saying that he remembers vividly the government’s vow to fight corruption and he would continue to contribute his quota towards achieving that objective. Besides he has the support of the Chief of Staff and the government and he would not succumb to the pressures of those seeking their way.

Asked about the whereabouts of his deputy, Nana Olivier, Carl Wilson said he had been asked to stay away from office pending investigations into allegations that he pulled a gun on a security operative at the Tema Port during a misunderstanding.
