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.

Konadu will not get a single vote in the Central Region - Allotey Jacobs

Director of Communications for the National Democratic Congress in the Central Region, Allotey Jacobs, says former first lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings will face a humiliating defeat in the region if she decides to challenge the presidency of Prof John Mills.

The Central Region, like most parts of the country, is replete with campaign posters of Mrs. Rawlings said to have been sponsored by a group calling itself the foot-soldiers of the NDC and touting the leadership credentials of the former first lady and seeking her candidature.

A representative of the group in the central region told Joy News that Mrs. Rawlings has no choice but to accept the proposal being put forward by the foot-soldiers or retire from politics.

He claimed to have lost confidence in the leadership style of President Mills, insisting the time has come for the real owners of the party to take up the mantle.

Reacting to the turn of events, Allotey Jacobs told Joy FM’s Central Regional correspondent Richard Kojo Nyarko that the party does not recognize any group purporting to be the foot-soldiers of the party.

According to him, the activities of the group are a blatant “disregard for the party’s rules and regulations.”

He contended that the posters were the handiworks of faceless people from Accra, adding, the Central Region is solidly behind President John Mills.

“The region is solidly behind Prof Mills and I don’t think if Nana Konadu decides to contest she will even get a single vote in the Central Region,” he touted.

He said he is aware of plans by certain persons to undermine the president in the region, saying such ploys will not work.
