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.

JJ must be arrested to name Ya-Na's killers - Frances

A member of the New Patriotic Party, Frances Assiam says they (NPP) would step up their campaign for the arrest of former President Jerry John Rawlings and other NDC executives to provide evidence of the killers of the Ya-Na and the serial murders of women some years ago.

Frances Essiam’s comments come in the wake of calls by a Pro NDC faction known as Media Analyst group who have asked the IGP to arrest Frances Assiam, National Chairman of the NPP, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey and General Secretary Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie for what they describe as inciting fear and panic with their statements of the death of two people during the Atiwa by-election.

Frances Essiam during the Atiwa by-election told Citi FM in an interview that two people had died which later turned out not to be true.

Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, has however denied ever saying that two people died during the Atiwa by-election held on August 31, 2010.

According to Frances Essiam, the group should first call for the arrest of ex President Rawlings and other NDC officials before asking for her arrest.

In an interview with Citi News, Frances Essiam said ex President Rawlings must also be arrested if she would be arrested for her comments.

“We are going to step up the issues for the arrest of people like former President Rawlings who knows the Dagbon killers, the serial women killers and also the arrest of Ofosu Ampofo and Baba Jamal. You remember the serial killing of women, former President Rawlings claimed that it was certain political elements in the NPP who were responsible for those murders, have the police arrested him? Has anybody called him to come and prove?”

“Former President Rawlings also said he had evidence as to who killed the Ya-Na, we have all heard it, we have it on tapes...he has even said it on platforms, why don’t the NDC go and ask for the arrest of the former President Rawlings so that this Dagbon trial would be easy, so that the culprits would be brought in and jailed”
