CR NDC Dares Prof Kwesi Yankah: Apologize if you have honour or conscience

590views

The Central Regional National Democratic Congress has dared the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education, Hon Kwesi Yankah to apologize immediately to Former President John Dramani Mahama for attacking his integrity  if he has an honour or conscience .

‘Hon Kwesi Yankah, take note that His Excellency John Dramani Mahama did not mention your name. He mentioned Prof Victor Yankah who was the Head of the English Department of the University of Cape Coast but currently with the Department of Theatre Studies of same University and once again not Hon Kwesi Yankah. We therefore call on you, Hon Kwesi Yankah to apologize immediately if you have honour or conscience’ the dared him.

In a strongly worded statement issued by the PRO of Education Ministry on behalf of Professor Yankah, the PRO lashed out at Former President Mahama for suggesting a certain ‘Professor Yankah’ was not consulted on Free SHS.

According to them, the Education Ministry is for serious business and if appointees who are deemed to be educated and with all the human resources at their disposal can be churning out misleading information based on unverified facts, then Ghana is in for a shocker.

It added that, It is in this vein that we in the NDC in the Central Region call on Hon Kwesi Yankah to apologise to His Excellency John Dramani Mahama and all Ghanaians for this pettiness in the highest order.

‘How on earth will Hon Kwesi Yankah cause Ekow Vincent Assafuah who even lacks due diligence to issue an insulting press release directed at His Excellency John Dramani Mahama merely because the Former President who is also the incoming President had mentioned one Prof Yankah in his remarks as one of the eminent educationists to be consulted in the review of the Free SHS. Can you imagine?’ they quizzed

Read the full statement below:

NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS
CENTRAL REGIONAL COMMUNICATIONS

for immediate release
Cape Coast
3rd October, 2018

HON KWESI YANKAH MUST APOLOGISE TO HIS EXCELLENCY JOHN DRAMANI MAHAMA AND ALL GHANAIANS IMMEDIATELY.

We are appaled at the level of pettiness, comics, cluelessness and arrogance appointees of the Akuffo Addo/Bawumia NPP Govt continues to exhibit in their daily interaction with the citizenry as well as eminent Stakeholders seen not to be from their political tradition.

How on earth will Hon Kwesi Yankah cause Ekow Vincent Assafuah who even lacks due diligence to issue an insulting press release directed at His Excellency John Dramani Mahama merely because the Former President who is also the incoming President had mentioned one Prof Yankah in his remarks as one of the eminent educationists to be consulted in the review of the Free SHS. Can you imagine?

Prof Victor Yankah of UCC (pictured siting at the table with our Regional Chairman -Hon EKT Addo when JM was speaking) is the man Former President John Dramani Mahama made reference to during his encounter with the delegates of Cape Coast North Constituency in respect of the “Free SHS Policy Review” comment he made.

Thus, H.E John Dramani Mahama was not referring to Hon Kwesi Nyankah (Minister of State in Charge of Tertiary Institution). It is therefore unfortunate for the Minister to sanction his PR to issue such a jaundiced statement yesterday to malign JM and we strongly condemn it without mincing words.

The Education Ministry is for serious business and if appointees who are deemed to be educated and with all the human resources at their disposal can be churning out misleading information based on unverified facts, then Ghana is in for a shocker. It is in this vein that we in the NDC in the Central Region call on Hon Kwesi Yankah to apologise to His Excellency John Dramani Mahama and all Ghanaians for this pettiness in the highest order.

Hon Kwesi Yankah, take note that His Excellency John Dramani Mahama did not mention your name. He mentioned Prof Victor Yankah who was the Head of the English Department of the University of Cape Coast but currently with the Department of Theatre Studies of same University and once again not Hon Kwesi Yankah. We therefore call on you, Hon Kwesi Yankah to apologise immediately if you have honour or conscience. Thank you.
