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.

NDC breakaway party grabs NDC Financier

A chief financier of the Brong Ahafo regional branch of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) who doubled as the Tano North constituency chairman of the party, Nana Braimah, has been elected as the Brong Ahafo Regional chairman of the newly-outdoored Real Democratic Patriots Party (RDPP).

Nana Braimah resigned from the NDC about six months ago, citing injustices that had been meted out to some of them, as well as unfulfilled promises of transforming the lives of the rural folks by the Mills administration.

Prior to the election on Monday September 20, DAILY GUIDE gathered that the NDC made frantic efforts to disrupt the event as top guns in the party thronged the residence of Nana Braimah to coax him to reject the RDPP offer. However, it did not work since the man had made a no-turning-back decision.

In his acceptance speech after a unanimous acclamation as the sole candidate to the position, at the election held at Braimakrom near Tanoso, Nana Braimah promised to use his influence in the area to attract more supporters and sympathizers of the NDC, especially the Wangala community, to the RDPP.

According to the former NDC financier, he has been with the NDC through thick and thin, however his expectations have been shattered, following the NDC government’s failure to fulfill the promises they made.

The RDPP chairman disclosed that he has imported two brand new pick-up vehicles to help in the effective running of the party’s operations. He also promised to foot all expenditures in running the RDPP.

The national coordinator of the RDPP, Raphael Cubagee, who supervised the election, promised the teeming supporters of the new party a better life in line with their motto: ‘Together We Build: Together We Enjoy.’

Mr. Cubagee lashed out at the Mills administration’s inability to stamp its authority over corrupt government appointees whose actions continue to embarrass the ruling party.

He disclosed that the NDC government appointees live profligate lifestyles at the expense of the poor tax-payer. According to him, several tender documents at the Sunyani Municipal Assembly have been forged by officials in an attempt to give contracts to their cronies.

Mr. Cubagee further hinted that a grader and a bulldozer purchased by the assembly cost a whopping ¢12bn, a transaction which has been kept in secrecy up to today. He has promised to expose more rot in the NDC government soon.

Per its regulations, the RDPP, an offshoot of the NDC, rotates the elections of its leaders from town to town on a weekly basis. It is expected that it will elect other officials in subsequent weeks at Wenchi and Dormaa Ahenkro.
