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 did not promise to put money in people's pockets - Mills

President JEA Mills says he did not make a promise to put money in people’s pockets.

He said he however knows some people – he will not name them – who did during the last electioneering campaigns.

Delivering his second sessional address since coming into office in January last year, the president told Parliamentarians he had been inundated by complaints from people that he was not putting money in their pockets, contrary to his campaign promise.

President Mills said regardless of the fact that he did not make the promise, he was committed to implementing programmes and policies that will put money in people’s pockets.

Amidst thunderous heckling by mainly the minority side of the House, the president said despite inheriting “a run-down economy characterized by unbridled spending,” the prudent management had put the economy on sound footing, enough to radiate hope for the future.
