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.

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has predicted a strong comeback for the opposition New Patriotic Party to takeover the leadership of the country from the ruling National Democratic Congress.

The former president in an exclusive interview with Joy FM’s Araba Coomson said everything for now looks bright for the NPP to run the next government come 2013.

“I believe [the presidential primary] will be strongly indicative that the NPP is back on the warpath and ready to take power in 2012.”

He said he was convinced that so far as the NPP remain united and strong as they are now he does not foresee any stumbling block on the way of the party to victory.

He also expressed satisfaction about the voting process after he cast his vote at the party’s headquarters in Accra.

“The assessment so far is very good, it is very promising and we are all going to wait for the result to be announced…”

About 113,000 delegates are expected to cast their votes in 228 out of 230 constituencies throughout the country in the party’s first expanded delegates’ conference where election is running simultaneously in all constituencies across the country. Only delegates in Ablekuma South and North in the Greater Accra Region are not voting in today’s historic exercise because of legal wranglings.

The presidential election is being keenly contested by five aspirants - Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, MP Isaac Osei, Rev Kwame Koduah, Mr. Alan Kyerematen and Nana Akufo-Addo.
