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.

“Kwabena Adjei spoke for NDC, not government”

Deputy Information Minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says the government was studying comments by National Democratic Congress chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei expressing misgivings against the judiciary and would in due time respond appropriately.

In the meantime however, he has urged the public to draw a clear distinction between the party and government, saying the party and its chairman have the right and channels for making public statements while the government, through its mouthpiece, the Ministry of Information, directs its own communication. It is therefore inappropriate to lump up the party and government and assign the responsibility for the chairman's comments.

Speaking on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen current affairs programme Wednesday, Okudzeto Ablakwa said it was not the intention of the government to undertake any cleansing of the judiciary and it would amount to undermining Dr. Kwabena Adjei's integrity and position for anyone to suggest that he was only fronting for an action the government intended to take.

Dr. Kwabena Adjei is taking the flak from members of the Ghana Bar Association and the New Patriotic Party for his comments Tuesday that the judiciary was biased towards the ruling party and called on the Chief Justice to cleanse her house or the party would advice itself.

Ablakwa urged patience while the government studied those comments, saying the chairman's comments requested specific actions on the part of the government and the judiciary.

He also assured the populace that the government would continue to ensure their security at all times and cautioned against anyone taking advantage of debate that has ensued following Dr. Adjei's comments to engage in scare mongering.
