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.

I am not a critic of Mills, I only correct mistakes - Spio

By Citifmonline.com | Mon 16th August, 2010 18:00 GMT
A Vice chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah has strongly dismissed suggestions that he is an ardent critic of the Atta Mills administration.

According to him, as a former minister and member of the National democratic Congress it is only right that he points out some mistakes of the government.

Speaking in an interview with Joy FM on Monday August 16, Dr. Garbrah said it would be wrong for people to supposedly allege that he is an ardent critique of the very person he campaigned for during the 2008 general elections.

Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah also cautioned the government to focus on solving the internal conflict confronting the party.

The CEO of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation said the government must work to promote internal party unity to enable it come out as a stronger force for the 2012 elections.

The Former Information minister warned the Atta Mills led government that failure to unite the party could spell doom in the next elections.

‘Unity in the party is one area that the government must work to promote, the government must solve the internal conflicts...When they see Nana Akufo-Addo meeting with those who competed against them, they will come out with a strategy to unite’’.

Dr. Spio Garbrah however commended President Mills for stabilising the economy.

He said the government has made significant improvement with regards to the macro economy with a reduction in interest rates, which he says provides an enabling environment for investments to grow.

He said government must trumpet its achievement in its eighteen months rule and strive to improve in areas where it has failed to deliver effectively.

Dr. Spio Garbrah also urged government to be receptive to criticisms and in order to improve on its performance.

According to him, Ghanaians would vote the NDC back into power in 2012, based on the performance of the Mills led government.
