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.

I owe no apologies for contradictions – John Jinapor

The Vice President’s aide Mr John Jinapor has rejected suggestions that he should apologize for his initial comments that sought to dispute a letter written by his boss.

The said letter which was originally produced by MP for Manhyia Dr. Matthew Opoku-Prempeh is said to have been written to a Chinese company government is seeking to arrange a loan deal with.

According to the MP the letter seeks to commit the country’s oil revenue and other commodities as collateral, arguing that it smacks of dishonesty on the part of the Vice President.

John Jinapor initially denied the Vice-President signed any such letter but later admitted the letter was indeed written and signed by his boss.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh in the aftermath of the Vice-President’s aide's u-turn called for Mr Jinapor’s resignation – a call Mr Jinapor's considers misplaced.

He maintained he did no wrong to warrant a call for his resignation.

“We have not done anything out of the formal legal framework. Everything is within the parliamentary framework…”

He said “when I [first] had the interview, the understanding I got was that the Vice-president had written a letter, an undertaking firmly committing government [to] use the oil revenue as collateral for whatever loan and I did indicate thate we were in Takoradi and we had not written any such letter.”
