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.

Alan Kyeremanten Lost The WTO Bid Because Prez Mahama Campaigned For Him

A member of the NPP’s communication team, Hopeson Adoryeh has stridently blamed President Mahama for playing a major role in Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten’s failure to become the Director General of the World Trade Organization.

According to him for a fact that there are serious issues surrounding the presidency of President Mahama, there was no need for him to have lobbied for the former Trade Minister.

Mr. Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten's bid to be Director-General for the World Trade Organisation, hit a snag after he failed to make it among the shortlisted candidates.

Prior to the selection, President John Dramani Mahama publicly confirmed his government’s support for the candidature of Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten for the position of D-G of the WTO.

President Mahama is on record to have lobbied his colleagues during an address at the 7th Summit of the Heads of State and Governments of Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, to join Ghana support Mr. Kyeremanten for the position.

But in an interview with Peacefmonline, Mr. Adoryeh blamed President Mahama for the defeat.

“First and foremost, let us blame President Mahama for Alan’s defeat. As soon as he opened his mouth to campaign for him, it became a threat,” he said.

He argued that majority of Ghanaians hadn’t accepted President Mahama as their leader so for this reason, it was wrong on the part of the president to have tried to lure his counterparts during the 7th Summit of the Heads of State and Governments of Africa.

“They (other presidents) saw his lobby as illegal and that affected Alan’s chances”, he established.
