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.

Activists of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper East Region have been distributing posters of former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings for the 2012 campaign to party members.

A group calling itself Foot soldiers of the NDC began pasting campaign posters in Accra and Cape Coast Sunday.

The group contends that it is dissatisfied with the Mills-led administration and is confident of Mrs Rawlings’ ability to lead the nation.

But a spokesperson for the former first family, Kofi Adams says she was not aware of the moves by the group.

Joy FM’s Upper East Regional Correspondent, Joseph Osei reported that party executives in the region have confirmed the distribution of the posters but have declined commenting publicly for fear of victimisation.

Joseph Osei said the Rawlingses are hugely popular in the region and that posters are being secretly distributed and admired.

The National Executives of the NDC have described the foot soldiers action as lacking discipline. They are also mischievous persons whose only intention is to create problems for the party.

The party has asked the foot soldiers to reveal their identities for their grievances to be addressed.

The NDC’s Propaganda Secretary, Richard Quashigah told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show that “the party is governed by a constitution, the party has tenets, rules and regulations that ought to be followed and if you are not following those rules and regulations, then obviously you are becoming a bit undisciplined.”

He suspects the foot soldiers are unaware of the constitutional provisions regulating the behaviour of party members.

Mr Quashigah said if the foot soldiers’ complaint that the National Organiser of the NDC, Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan and presidential Aide, Nii Lantey Vanderpuije have been touring parts of the country and campaigning for president Mills’ candidature is true, that action must be condemned and further investigated.

He insisted it was not time for campaigns for the election of NDC flagbearer and called for restraint.

Meanwhile a pair of the posters proposing Nana Konadu as the ideal candidate to lead the NDC which was posted on a pillar close to Joy FM Sunday has been defaced by unknown persons.
