via GBC News, , Nana Addo slams NDC for toying with education of children.


The NDC party and government is continuing to live up to its reputation as government of lies and propaganda. The NDC is the only political Party with propaganda executives. Propaganda is an official mode of operation.

A deputy Information Minister in the NDC government is on record urging civil servants to lie and distort information in the course of their work, to make the government look good.

Propaganda, distortion, outright lies are so ingrained in the governance culture of the NDC that the government seems now not to take account of reality. The latest press conference by Mr. Fiifi Kwetey, former propaganda Secretary of the NDC, and now a Deputy Minister of Finance, is just the latest example of the pursuit of propaganda, distortion and lies as a policy of government and party.

UNLIKE NDC, NPP wON’T wait 20 years to implement free SHS

The attention of the New Patriotic Party has been drawn to a press conference organised by the Minister of Education, Lee Ocran, on Monday, 10th September, 2012, where he described the NPP’s policy of free senior high school education as not feasible. This only shows how far the NDC has lost touch with the concerns and aspirations of ordinary Ghanaians.

It is only a reckless and uncaring government that can, like the NDC, see the urgency in finding some GH¢858 million in three years to pay judgement debts and, yet, cannot imagine how to find money to invest in the future of our children, most of whom are being failed today by the existing education system.
