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.

CORRUPTION: Carl Wilson has been sacked

Reports indicate that the embattled Chairman of the Confiscated Vehicle Allocation Committee, Mr Carl Wilson, has been sacked.

His dismissal follows agitations by some members of the ruling National Democratic Congress that the man should be removed from office because his corrupt practices had been denting the image of the party.

Irate youth of the party Thursday morning besieged the party's headquarters, locked out national officers denying them access to their offices and vowed to stay there until the man was sacked.

In order to calm tensions, the National Organiser of the NDC, Mr Yaw Gyan Boateng went to address the demonstrators and told the angry supporters that Mr Wilson had been sacked.

He said if any clandestine attempts are made to reverse the decision, he will join them to demonstrate against the Chairman of the Confiscated Vehicle Allocation Committee and whoever is trying to shield him.

The Communications Director at the Presidency, Koku Anyidoho confirmed the dismissal to Joy FM.

He would not give any details regarding the reasons for Mr Wilson's sack.

Carl Wilson has come under intense fire in the media and from members of the ruling party for allegedly abusing his office by unilaterally ordering the sale of confiscated vehicles to his cronies for peanuts.

He has denied all the allegations claiming that some people who engaged in nefarious activities at the Tema Port and who feel their business had been threatened by his insistence on doing the right thing, were bent on doing him in.

The Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr Alex Segbefia who appointed him is believed to have been protecting the man in the face of all the allegation.

News of Mr Wilson's sack have been rife in the media but each time, Mr Segbefia has risen to his defence.

Asempa FM Wednesday evening broke the news that Mr Wilson had been sacked.

But Thursday morning he spoke to Joy FM's Super Morning host Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah in his capacity as the Chairman of the Confiscated Vehicle Allocation Committee.
