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.

Kufuor denies doubting Nana Addo can win 2012

The office of former President JA Kufuor has rubbished a publication alleging he doubts NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo, can win elections in 2012.

The Herald newspaper reports the former president hinted he was uncertain about Nana Addo’s chances at becoming President.

The paper claims that Mr Kufuor expressed this scepticism at a meeting in the German capital, Berlin during his recent visit there.

But his spokesman, Frank Agyekum, tells Joynews the story is a complete fabrication ill-intentioned and designed to create a wedge between the former president and the main opposition NPP’s flag-bearer.

“The president said that when the NPP was in power, we did follow tenets of the social market economy and he was promising that when we come back to power which will be in the very near future and that is what Herald is conjecturing to say that it does not think that president Kufuor’s belief is Nana Akufo-Addo is going to come to power.”

Mr Frank Agyekum said the near future the former president was referring to is 2012.

He said the headline of the Herald newspaper's story was misleading because when “you read the story there is nothing in it so it just tells you that [this] is another piece of bad journalism.”
