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.

Nduom condemns Mills, Nana Addo controversy at Afahye

The 2008 Convention People’s Party presidential candidate Dr. Paa Kwesi Ndoum has condemned the controversy that surrounded the organization of the Fetu Afahye Festival in the Central Region over the week-end.

The New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress have been engaged in accusations and counter accusations days after the festival.

Dr. Nduom told Joy News the controversy does not auger well for the country and the traditional institution in particular.

“You must not allow a joyous occasion like the Afahye festival, an occasion that is supposed to bring people together [to generate such controversy].

“It is important that we ask the traditional authorities themselves to ensure that they make proper arrangements for everybody, so that there are proper sitting arrangements and proper protocols.

“Otherwise, the traditional authorities will also come under the suspicion that they only act under the influence of the government of the day.

“This thing keeps repeating itself and everyone must condemn it,” he said.

In 2008 there was scuffle between state security and those accompanying then candidate Mills at the Fetu Afahye Festival resulting in some injuries.
