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.

Takyiman South MP: The “Ruling Class” Is Killing Ordinary Ghanaians With Their Decisions

Related Stories
The NDC MP for Takyiman South constituency, Hon. Agyei Mensah has chided the ruling class, saying that they feel Ghana is for them and so determine how the national assets should be shared in the country.

According to him the ruling class which constitutes top civil servants, public servants, paramount chiefs, pastors, doctors and professors as well as politicians has ganged up to loot the country, as their decisions have always favoured themselves forgetting that it is the poor cocoa farmers and the petty traders whose efforts all the educated elites are living on.

Speaking on Okay FM, the Takyiman South MP said that though the Parliamentarians and politicians are taken huge sums of money, the doctors who are now in Parliament, according him have confessed that they were getting nearly 200m cedis per month before they joined Parliament.

He stressed that the educated elites should consider the poor farmers and the small scale business operators whenever decisions are being taken.

“The ruling class is killing the ordinary Ghanaians with their decisions, and as a politician I think our work is not as difficult as the poor cocoa farmers who have to work hard to produce the cocoa the government export for foreign exchange to develop the country,” he said.

According to him “Ghana is not for the educated elites and they must always consider the poor in their decisions since it is through the efforts of Ghanaians which the country is growing”.
