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.

Campaigners for former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings’ presidential ambition have denied allegations in the media that they had a cold reception in the Western Region.

The campaign team was in the region to campaign for the former first lady ahead of the July flagbearership elections of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The Enquirer newspaper reported that the team had a cold reception in the region but outspoken NDC MP for Lower Manya Krobo, Michael Tei Nyaunu says that it is untrue, stating that majority of the party’s executives in the region have broken ranks with what he described as an earlier unified declaration of support for President Mills.

According to him, contrary to the paper’s report that he, Tei Nyaunu and Kofi Adams, Former President Rawlings’ Spokes person and the leader of the campaign, sneaked into the region for their campaign, party faithful in the region trooped in their numbers to welcome them.

Tei Nyaunu speaking to Citi News Wednesday emphasized that they, the campaign team received massive support and endorsement during their 4-day campaign in the region.

“We had a nice time with them, some of them even told us that the regional executives on hearing that we were in town instructed them not to meet us but they defied it and decided to meet us because they were anxious about the information that we will be bringing and whether Nana Konadu will really be contesting or it’s just a ploy. We confirmed it for them that she is contesting,” he said.

He further revealed that the declaration did not involve all the constituency executives, adding, it was a stage managed declaration which has incurred the displeasure of many in the constituency adding, “People are not telling His Excellency the President the truth on the ground.”

Meanwhile, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, Western Regional Youth Organiser of the NDC has denied Tei Nyaunu claims insisting Nana Konadu’s campaign was indeed shunned by majority of the constituency executives.
