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.

It's official; Nana Konadu forms new party

It is no longer a rumour that former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, together with other former members of the National Democratic Congress has formed a new political party.

A former General Secretary of the governing NDC, Dr Josiah Aryeh has confirmed to Joy FM that Nana Konadu is a key member of the National Democratic Party (NDP).

The Electoral Commission has also confirmed it received documents from the leaders of the new proposed party and were assessing the colours and symbols of the new party to ensure they do not conflict with those of existing political parties.

According to Josiah Aryeh, who is the NDP's Interim Chairman, the party had a national spread and did not revolve around the former first family.

The former NDC General Secretary stated that the ideology of the newly formed party is to protect Ghanaians with emphasis on the under-privileged in the society.

The NDP has a logo which portrays a white rising dove, against a red breaking dawn. It has three colours, red, white and black.

Josiah Aryeh, maintained the primary objective of the NDP was not to deliberately hurt the electoral fortunes of the governing NDC. Rather, he says that the NDP was a party that had come to stay.

But pollster, and Editor of Daily Dispatch newspaper Ben Ephson told Joy FM that the aim of the founders of the NDP is to cause the NDC the 2012 elections rather than win themselves.
According to him, what the founders of the break away NDP ought to have done was to stay in the NDC and fight their cause rather than moving out, which he says would be seen as a selfish act.

Ben Ephson noted that it would not be surprising if Mrs Rawlings resigns from the NDC to join the NDP.
He, however, believes a similar move by the founder of the NDC, Mr. Rawlings himself would amount to Mr Rawlings throwing away his legacy.
