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.

Kan-Dapaah is a conduit for NPP’s diabolical campaign against Woyome

Kwame Tawiah, aide to Alfred Agbesi Woyome who is currently standing trial over a GH¢51million judgment debt controversy, claims they have ample evidence to prove that the NPP will anchor their elections 2012 campaign on the Woyome saga.

According to Tawiah, the NPP as part of its campaign strategy wants to revive what he says is the over-flogged Woyome judgement debt scandal to win the December general elections.

Mr. Tawiah was responding to recent threats by Chairman of the Public Account Committee (PAC), Albert Kan-Dapaah to haul Mr. Woyome before the Committee with the help of the IGP.

Albert Kan-Dapaah said he would write to the Inspector General of Police, Paul Tawiah Quaye to arrest Woyome and drag him before the Committee to respond to issues about the colossal amount paid to him (Woyome) as judgement debt.

But Alfred Woyome insisted he was already standing trial for the judgment debt scandal and therefore could not speak to the matter outside of court.

However, speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Friday, Kwame Tawiah maintained that Albert Kan-Dapaah was just a conduit for the NPP's diabolical plan to revive the Woyome scandal for its electioneering campaign.

He contended that the PAC Chairman had compromised his position amd could not be trusted to do a decent, fair-minded national duty.

"...Even members on his own Committee have raised issues with the Chairman’s conduct. Why this whimsical abuse of power and utter ego by Kan Dapaah”? he quizzed.

Woyome’s aide described Kan-Dapaah’s conduct as “a shame to our democracy and an abuse of power”.

He stated emphatically that Mr. Woyome will never appear before the Public Accounts Committee because the summons were illegally done.

Tawiah could not fathom why the PAC Chairman was insisting that Alfred Woyome appears before the Committee in spite of the explanations given for his inability to attend to the Committee's invitation.

He said the Woyome camp will not be cowed by the Committee's threat since, they acted in accordance with the law.

“Kan-Dapaah should write to the IGP to cause Woyome’s arrest; we are waiting patiently. We have our constitutional rights and will act according to the rule of law,” he said.

Kwame Tawiah indicated that the NPP should not delude itself into thinking that it can win elections by capitalizing on the Woyome judgement debt scandal.

“You [NPP] still want to make Woyome news; you still want to make Woyome a campaign issue they should go ahead we are waiting for them”.
