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 top gun rallies against JJ, wife

Ahead of the national delegates congress of the National Democratic congress (NDC) scheduled to take place in Tamale in the northern region, a member of the party is calling on the delegates to reject contestants perceived to be aligned to the former first couple.

According to Mr Prince Diawuo, who is the Propaganda Secretary of the NDC in the Asunafo North Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, candidates known to belong to former President Rawlings and his wife have certain agenda they want to pursue in the party.

“Those vying for various positions with links with the former first couple should not be voted for at all because they have something under their sleeves,” he said.

Mr Diawuo, said that the future of the NDC depended so much on who and who are voted for various positions at the forthcoming Tamale congress.

“That future will be good for the party if those who owe allegiance to former President Rawlings are made not to get anywhere closer to the party at all,” he said. He said that current ranting and doing of people closer to Rawlings should send strong signals to the delegates not vote for them.

“Rawlings has had his term as president and we all supported him and it is the time of Professor Mills and we must all support him for the NDC to succeed,” he said. He told The Enquirer that although certain things may not look to some members of the NDC, the right avenues must be used, instead of attacking the President.

“Rawlings at the time he was the president did lots of things that were not right but we the members of the party gave him the needed support and so must we do for Prof. Mills,” he said.

Mr Diawuo said that the NDC is now in a position that it would be wrong for anybody to impose his or her ideas on the president. “Even in our various homes it is not every time that the father, who is the head of the family, can impose measures on the children. We need to accept that things have changed with time and things must be done to suit present situations,” he added. The Asunafo North NDC Propaganda Secretary said that it would be a great deal of disservice to take undue advantage of the gentle manners of the president for granted.

“The NDC and for that matter Ghana is blessed to have one of the finest gentlemen in our modern politics as a leader. “It is therefore in our best interest to help such a person to be successful in his reign because he has better things for all and sundry,” he said.

Mr Diawuo said that the NDC’s quest to retain power in 2012 depended on how party members carry themselves today. “My point is very simple, we must have people who will serve the interest of the NDC and not certain individuals. “It should never be about trying to please the former president but rather it should be pleasing the NDC as a party,” he added.
