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.

A leading member of the Convention Peoples Party, Dr Vladimir Antwi Danso has criticized the party’s decision to form what it says is a shadow cabinet.

The CPP's shadow cabinet is made up of 15 persons.

It has Dr. Paa Kwesi Ndoum for Finance and Economic Planning, George Aggudey for Interior, Prof. Agyemang Badu Akosa for Health, Education, Youth and Sports and Samia Nkrumah for Parliamentary Affairs among others. The CPP wants to use the recently-named shadow cabinet to offer policy alternatives to government.

Some political analysts have said the move is a welcome effort to unite various factions within the party.

But Dr. Vladmir Antwi Danso, who is also a Fellow of the Legon Center for International Affairs says the shadow cabinet is unnecessary.

“I don’t see it giving the CPP visibility or enhancing the fortunes of the CPP in anyway.”

He said the people should rather concentrate on the proposed merger with the People’s National Convention, and to reactivate its grassroots.

But, General Secretary of the party, Ivan Greenstreet says Dr Antwi Danso needs to educate himself about what is going on in the party.

Meanwhile, Kwesi Amakye, a political science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, thinks it would be better for the CPP to enlarge its support base to add impact to its party activities rather than the shadow cabinet.
