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 is retarding Ghana’s development - Nana Akufo Addo

Mills is retarding Ghana’s development - Nana Akufo Addo

NPP flag bearer, Nana Akufo Addo has accused the Mills-led administration of being responsible for the high rate of unemployment, poverty and the high cost of education currently confronting the nation.

Addressing thousands of party faithful and sympathisers at the Mantse Agbonaa Park in James Town, Saturday, a fired up Nana Addo said, President Mills and his economic team have caused the country’s development to retrogress instead of progressing.

He challenged the President to prove otherwise by making his record known to Ghanaians.

Nana Addo questioned the President’s ability to rule the nation, since according to him, the President is now a ceremonial leader who is not directly in charge of state affairs.

He cited the woyome saga and the fact that the President’s directive to the Finance Ministry to withhold the payment of the judgment debt to Mr. Woyome going unheeded as reasons for submissions.

Nana Addo reiterated his commitment to make Ghana a country free of corruption as well as make education at the senior high school level free.

He stressed that he will not be fazed by attempts from his political opponents to dent his image.

“I want to assure you of one thing, no amount of lies and insults against my person or threats to me are going to put me off,” the NPP flag bearer charged.

“Again, let me repeat that, no amount of insults, lies or propaganda, no amount of threats directed at my person are going to stop me in my attempts to move this nation forward.”

According to Nana Addo, he had never and will support the use of violence in politics and promised a free and fair election in December.

He later charged supporters of the party to register during the upcoming voter registration exercise on March 24, and tasked them to be very vigilant during the exercise to prevent a bloating of the voter’s register and the registration of foreign nationals as well as underage children.

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor who also addressed the gathering intimated that Nana Addo was the best candidate for the presidency of Ghana since he is deeply rooted in the political affairs of the nation.

He also challenged supporters to partake in the voter registration exercise noting that failure on their part to do so could lead to the party losing the December polls.

The “gargantuan rally” was used to introduce the NPP’s parliamentary candidates for the Greater Accra region and for all 230 constituencies to the charged crowd with a call on them rally behind the candidates to ensure that their victory is secured in the December polls.
