Double-Track system Was Not A Rush, It’s Leapfrogging Concept – Adutwum



Deputy Minister of Information Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has rubbished claims that the double track system implemented for senior high school students was out of rush, insisting it was a leapfrogging concept.

Speaking with Kwabena Prah on Accra FM’s ‘Ghana Yensom Show’ on Wednesday, Mr Adutwum said the double-track system “is a leapfrogging concept, so, instead of taking 50 years to put up school infrastructure to accommodate the influx of students, we’re using that to circumnavigate the infrastructure hurdles”.

“We can’t wait for 126 years” before doing so, he noted.

He noted that claims that it was a rush are inaccurate stressing that “If our generation wants to transform this country, we need to rush but with a mindset of not forgetting about quality. So, you don’t just rush but look for leapfrogging strategies.”

He further noted that the country’s peers like South Korea who Ghana used to be richer than are now manufacturing planes and giving us loans. Therefore there was a need to strategize and catch up with the advanced world.

He stated, “we’re in a hurry because time has run out on us.”

“Ghana’s peers, in terms of nationhood and independence, are now into manufacturing aeroplanes and other things but the painful thing is that they are not any smarter than us except that they have the mindset that everything is possible”, he pointed out.



I Regret Beating Bissue, I’m So Sorry – Mireku Duker Begs Ghanaians



Member of Parliament for Tarkwa-Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker has expressed regrets over a fight between him and New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Regional Secretary for Western Region, Charles Bissue.

According to him, although he acted in self defense against a fuming Bissue, he acknowledged that it was not befitting of him as an MP to engage in violence.

Mireku Duker had his hand bitten by Charles Bissue

“My supporters and the party people know I’m not violent. I have never fought before but I couldn’t sit there and watch someone beat me. The laws of the country allow us to defend ourselves under certain conditions.

Charles Bissue had a swollen face and red eye as a result of heavy punches from Mireku Duker

“I did not insult him and even if I did, he wouldn’t have heard from where I sat. He threw the first punch saying that I will beat you. We got angry and fought but I regret it. I want to say sorry to everyone. It hurts me that this happened. I’m so sorry. I never thought Bissue would do that but I really regret it,” he said.

Akufo Addo Sacks Sekyere East DCE After She Allegedly Vowed To Decrease NPP Votes



The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sekyere East in Effiduase in the Ashanti Region, Mary Boatemaa Marfo has been sacked by President Akufo Addo.

This comes after she allegedly threatened to reduce the votes of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Effiduase-Asokore Constituency during the December 7 polls.

In a leaked audio, the DCE was heard in a conversation with a party member saying that she will frustrate voters on election day which will in turn reduce the votes of the NPP and the Member of Parliament, Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie.

Meanwhile Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah, has been tasked to take oversight responsibility until a new DCE is appointed.

NDC Must Go And Prove Their ‘Missing Names’ Claim At Today’s IPAC Meeting – Ben Ephson



Pollster, Ben Ephson has entreated the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to make it a priority to attend today’s Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting being organised by the Electoral Commission.

According to him, the NDC may have boycotted many of the IPAC’s meeting however, this particular one presents them the chance to lay bear their grievances over some supposed missing names in the voters’ register in some NDC strongholds.

“I think that they will be shooting themselves in the foot if they don’t attend today’s IPAC,” he said.

He told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr “well I think that today’s is different. Today’s hinges on a major issue because a credible voters register ensures credible elections. And NDC’s concerns are the heart of the credibility. So, if you make allegations, IPAC offers an opportunity and you refuse to go, what message are you sending out, blowing hot air? I’ll be surprised if the NDC does not attend today’s IPAC.”

He added “NDC will have to go and give prove over the sinister allegation that there is an attempt to target NDC supporters. And once it comes out there, the EC will be on the backpedal to ensure that these things are corrected. So, if the NDC does not go to the IPAC people will see you as blowing hot air. Go with what you have and the EC will have to correct and see that whether deliberate or not there seem to be more instances in NDC strongholds than the rest of the country.”
