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.

Story on school felling trees for charcoal to buy computers attracts donations
KT Hammond
The Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa and some other philanthropists have pledged to provide some computers to the Volta region school that is planning some drastic measures to improve ICT education.

The donation follows a Joy News report about the Adidokpoe Methodist School in Battor in the Volta region that says it wants to fell about fifty trees on the school compound to burn enough charcoal to buy its first computer.

The school authorities believe this would halt the poor performance of the pupils at the BECE.

Peter Sarpong’s report captured the headmaster of the school as saying the students have to cut the trees on the school’s compound to burn charcoal, sell and raise money to buy a computer for the school.

The ICT teacher of the school lamented the difficulties in teaching the subject in abstract.

After the report was aired, the Adansi Asokwa MP, one of several philanthropists, came forward to offer some help.

KT Hammond told Joy News he will provide the school with three computers. He says he is touched by the commitment of the pupils and teachers.

CID investigates how cocaine turned into sodium bicarbonate


CID investigates how cocaine turned into sodium bicarbonate
Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) says it will investigate how cocaine kept in the exhibit room at its headquarters turned into sodium bicarbonate.

This had led to the court acquitting the man who was accused of possessing the narcotic substance.

A circuit court judge has therefore directed the Inspector General of Police to as a matter of urgency institute an enquiry into the incident.

Director of Operations at the CID, Chief superintendent Frank Kwofie tells Joy News the service will not shy away from any enquiry.

“At the time that it was opened at the court, and at the time that it turned into a different substance, needs to be investigated thoroughly and whoever is culpable must be held liable,” Chief Superintendent Frank Kwofie promised.
