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.

Allotey Jacobs: Woyome scandal stinks, it’s an albatross on our neck

Allotey Jacobs: Woyome scandal stinks, it’s an albatross on our neckCentral Regional Communication Director of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, says the Woyome scandal is an albatross on the neck of government.

Describing the controversial payment of GHS58 million judgment debt to the NDC financier as stinking, Mr Jacobs admitted: “It has become an albatross on our neck as a party and as a government…”

He was, however, quick to assure Ghanaians that President John Evans Atta Mills is “resolute to unravel this mystery and axe will fall where it must fall.”

Allotey Jacobs was speaking on Peace FM’s current affairs programmeKokrokoo on Wednesday.

He pleaded with Ghanaians not to pay attention to attempts by opposition parties whom he said were trying hard to narrow down the scandal to the president.

Despite the difficulties, Allotey said it was better to entrust the country into Mills’ hand than that of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, leader of the main opposition party, New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He also called on all NDC members to take the wise counsel of Mr Sam Pee Yarley and stay clear of the case and allow the courts to determine Woyome’s innocence or otherwise.
