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 flagbearership: Mills would obviously be retained

Nii Lantey Vanderpuije, special aide to President Mills, has counseled members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who are thinking of contesting the president for the flagbearership of the party to rescind the decision suffer an embarrassing loss.

According to him, it would be a waste of time and money for anyone to contest Mills because he would deliver on his promises and convince Ghanaians to retain him in power.

He added that it would be unnecessary for the NDC delegates to decide otherwise.

After being accused of not managing the economy well and acting too slowly, some members of the NDC have also warned of the party losing power to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) if President Mills is retained as the NDC's presidential candidate for the 2012 elections.

Recently, a member of the party who failed to win the youth organizer position of the party and said to be a Rawlings loyalist, Mohammed Abdulai Mubarak, (Ras Mubarak) wrote in an article that the President “no longer has grassroots support and is certainly unpopular with young voters”, adding that “there are irrefutable reasons why he cannot lead the NDC into victory in 2012.”

But speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana programme Monday, the presidential aide, who obviously disagreed with the above assertion, noted that the president would have taken Ghana to the ‘Promised Land’ by 2012.

Turning his attention to the NPP, Nii Lantey urged flagbearer aspirants to focus on marketing themselves to their delegates instead of capitalizing on the ‘failures’ of the Mills administration as a measuring rod because some people did the same thing in his party and it did not help them.

He was certain that President “Mills’ election victory come 2012 is indisputable”.
