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.

Koku & Ayariga to be fired!

The looming cabinet reshuffle has already started causing some jittery nights to some Ministers and Aides at the seat of Presidency, as information available to newsmen indicates that Messrs Mahama Ayariga and Koku Anyidohu, Presidential Spokesperson and Director of Communications respectively are to be fired.

According to sources, the two communicators who speak for the President, last week, placed calls to the phone of a very senior journalist who has very close links with the President and meets him often, to ascertain whether they would be given the sack or not.

“They are going to be fired; the President is sick and tired of all the lapses in the communications machinery and he has decided to deal with the matter. The Vice President is also very worried,” Castle sources said.

According to the sources, “their fate precariously hangs in the balance; it is a done deal.” Mahama Ayariga, a former Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, was appointed by the President as his spokesperson but sources say the two communicators are going to have their positions scrapped for non-performance and “unguarded utterances Koku usually spews.”

This paper has also gathered that the President’s action to relieve the two men of their positions was to restore sanity into the communication setup at the Castle. There are rumours doing the rounds that Hon. Fritz Baffour, who has been tipped to replace Hon Zita Okaikoi, the current Minister of Information, has started meeting some editors and also going on radio stations to inform the citizenry about government’s programme
