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.

Sekou Nkrumah sacked!

Dr. Sekou Nkrumah has been sacked as coordinator of the National Youth Council after criticising the leadership style of President Mills.

This was confirmed by the deputy Sports Minister Nii Nortey Duah who signed the dismissal letter.

The chairman of the Board of the National Youth Council Esther Cobbah, told Joy News the Board took a unanimous decision not to confirm Dr Nkrumah and has communicated its decision verbally to him before issuing out the letter.

Citing reasons for the Board's decision, Esther Cobbah said the board was unimpressed with the work done so far by the acting coordinator.

She said Dr. Nkrumah "blames everybody else but himself for the shortcomings of the council" in the discharge of his duties, "has not provided any vision or plan for the council" and has shown gross disrespect to the entire membership of the board.

She made reference to recent interview Dr Nkrumah granted Joy FM during which he said that government had rejected the National Youth Policy and had directed the Youth and Sports Minister to draft a new policy in two weeks.

This she said was untrue, adding the acting chairman did not demonstrate circumspection in his public utterances.

The dismissal of Dr Nkrumah takes effect on 22 July, 2010.

The chairman of the board said the council requires a new national coordinator but will follow the laid down constitutional procedures.
