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.

We are not zombies - E/R NDC Chair tells the Rawlingses

Eastern regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress, Mr. Julius Debrah says former President Rawlings and his wife Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings must be told in the face that the party is nobody’s property.

The leadership of the party in some regions have thrown their weight behind President Mills after the party's first Vice Chairperson and wife of former President Rawlings, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings resigned her position to contest sitting President Prof. John Evans Atta Mills for the flagbearership position as the party goes to congress in July this year.

But a furious Mr. Debrah who was speaking on Asempa FM’s late afternoon current affairs programme Ekosii Sen said members of the NDC are not zombies who will follow whatever ex-president Rawlings and his wife say only because he is the founder of the party.

He contends that a party is a society where members join voluntarily and that even though there could be a founder, he or she must accord the membership some level of respect and not be treated with contempt and indignation.

“The Eastern Region is not going to declare support for anybody; we all already know that it is Prof. Mills we support and we will vote for him to the shock of everyone. We have entertained Rawlings and his foolhardiness for far too long. He should have told all of us that when he was criticizing the President for not performing, he was only preparing the grounds for the wife to contest President Mills he queried.”
