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.

    54-year-old Bossman defeated the outgoing mayor Dr. Tomaz Gantar on Sunday.

    Doctor Bossman, known as the “Obama of Piran” where he lives, belongs to Slovenia's governing Social Democrats and used to be a member of the Piran City Council.

    "I based my campaign on a dialogue, and I think the dialogue has won," the Associated Press quoted the Ghanaian-born doctor as saying in the country where the vast majority are whites.

    Bossman settled in the former Yugoslavia in the 1970s to study medicine. The country of two million people is located near Italy, Austria and Croatia.
