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.

Carl Wilson fired from National Security

Carl Wilson, who was relieved of his duty as Chairman of the Confiscated Vehicles and Assets Committee (CVAC), has been dismissed from the National Security.

This follows an order by the President to the National Security apparatus to terminate the appointment of the security operative.

The dismissal follows recent acts of misconduct by Mr. Wilson operating as National Security personnel.

Mr. Wilson, a National Security operative, was given added responsibility as head of CVAC but he was recently dismissed by the President following numerous allegations of corruption in his management of confiscated cars.

After that dismissal, he continued working as a security operative, but his actions, which high-ranking officials of the National Security apparatus described as acts of misconduct, earned him another sack.

Reliable sources at National Security told the Times that President Mills, whose attention was drawn to those acts of misconduct, gave the directive on Monday, May 10.

The directive, which is said to have been carried out, called for an immediate dismissal of Wilson, and his name struck off the security list.

Events that led to the latest development include his visit to the Tema port to check on some vehicles during which a confrontation ensued between him and personnel at the port.

Prior to that, source said Mr. Wilson had visited the Takoradi Port to inspect seized cars, which annoyed the security operatives and personnel there.

The final dismissal, the source believed, was to ensure that he did not use his position as National Security operative as a cover to undertake unauthorized operations.

“In effect, anybody who deals with him as an operative will be doing so at his or her own risk,” the source said.
