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.

Mills asks A-G to go if...
Mr. Martin Amidu, Attorney General
President Mills is reported to have asked Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mr. Martin Amidu to provide evidence to back his claim of crimes against the state by hard core criminals holding party cards or leave office.

Joy News sources say the President has not been too pleased with pronouncements by the Attorney General who last week lambasted a section of supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress baying for his removal.

Holding firm to what he said was his oath and promise as minister to “uphold, preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the Republic of the Ghana as by law established…” in the charged statement he issued, Martin Amidu pointed out that "...hard core criminals in our society today have made it a habit to hold paid membership cards of major political parties in the republic as an unconstitutional insurance against crime and criminal prosecutions.

"I wish core members and supporters of the NDC who cherish the principles and ideas upon which the party was founded to know that the attacks against me which started in the Daily Post publications of the 3rd January 2012 were planned by a colleague Minister of State, who perceived that my integrity and professionalism as a lawyer was a threat to the concealment of gargantuan crimes against the people of Ghana in which they might be implicated. An alibi was consequently created on 30th December 2011 to unleash the gullible section of the NDC press on me by the leakage of official documents from my ministry through the perverse section of a rented NDC press to the public beginning the 3rd of January 2012."

Mr. Martin Amidu declined to comment on whether he indeed has been asked to provide evidence or leave office except to say that if there was any such thing, the President would communicate officially to the nation. Click on this link to read the full statement by the A-G
