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.

There are Al-Qaedas in NPP – Maxwell Kofi Jumah

MP for Asokwa and former Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly Chief Executive, Maxwell Kofi Jumah has said that some ‘fake’ members of the New Patriotic Party he calls Al-Qaeda are doctoring constituency registers of the party.

Kofi Jumah, who was speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Senprogramme on Friday, said the act is “rampant” in the Eastern Region and believes the perpetrators intend to influence the outcome of the August 7 primary to elect a presidential candidate for the party.

Four of the five aspirants for the post last Wednesday jointly held a press conference to call for a cleaner register. The four - Prof Frimpong-Boateng, Dr Isaac Osei, Rev Kwame Koduah and Mr Alan Kyerematen in whose camp Kofi Jumah operates, were all officially represented except Nana Akufo-Addo.

Contrary to criticisms that the action of the four – going public with their grievances – aimed at sowing seeds of discord in the party, Kofi Jumah said the four aspirants love the party, however they feel frustrated by machinations within the party that suggest they are being handed a raw deal.

He said those criticizing the four for going public with their grievances over alleged shortcomings in the party’s electoral register should also advocate for an open door policy in the party, explaining that the party needs to first desist from creating situations that will cause its members to voice publicly whatever misgivings they may have. He said for instance if complaints or petitions are dealt with expeditiously, there will be no need for any member of the party to go public with the same issues. But when they petition the party’s leadership and see no action, they should not be blamed for washing the party’s dirty linen in public.

Kofi Jumah said those Al-Qaeda NPP members have long set about their clandestine jobs and should be told in the face that the NPP abhors their nefarious activities rather than taking on those who dare to speak about the wrongs.

He said had those being criticized used the occasion to commend some good deeds within the party, even if publicly, none would have come out to condemn them.
