NDC PLAN DEMO AGAINST NAPO For Revealing Ex-Minister’s Bad RecordS

SOME TOP members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are planning to organize a demonstration against Education Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh aka ‘Napo’.

These NDC members are not happy because Napo recently stated the obvious by accusing the NDC ex-Education Minister, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman of poor leadership which almost crippled the ministry.

Napo, who is known for his candid nature, had disclosed the colossal debt that the NDC government left behind at the Ministry of Education, under the leadership of Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman.

The NDC gurus are not happy because they believe Napo’s accurate statement has the potential of denting the image of Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman and the NDC as a political party.

Demo Secret Meeting

These NDC top members, whose identities are being shielded by ‘paemuka.com’ for strategic reasons, at least for now, held a secret meeting at a location in Accra on Friday where they hatched the idea to demonstrate against Napo.

Demo Format

Per their diabolic strategy, these NDC gurus intends wooing more NDC women to sign a petition against Napo for telling the truth about the huge debt that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration inherited at the Ministry of Education.

The demonstration is intended to take place before the end of November 2017. It looks likely that the demonstration, which will be female-dominated, will take place in Accra or Kumasi, checks by ‘paemuka.com’ has unearthed.

Demo Target

The organizers of the demonstration are only seeking to unjustifiably tarnish Napo’s image because they see his (Napo’s) recent sincere statement as an attack against Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyerman and the entire NDC as political party.

They also believe the demonstration will benefit the NDC as it will overshadow the huge rot that the NDC left behind at the Ministry of Education, which Napo had disclosed publicly.

Napo’s Statement

Dr. Opoku Prempeh aka ‘Napo’ recently said the obvious when he took his time to state the huge debt that occurred at the Ministry of Education due to Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman’s inefficient leadership style.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FMs flagship programme dubbed ‘Ekosii Sen’, Napo said the ex-Education minister’s poor leadership resulted in the piling of huge debts at the ministry.

For instance, he said Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman’s poor leadership contributed to the starving of basic schools of consumables such as chalk. He added that the ministry also procured services without making any provisions to pay for them.

Napo noted that the ministry left behind a debt of US$18 million through the distribution of yellow buses to schools, adding that a staggering US$17 million textbooks debt still hangs on the neck of the ministry.

The Minister of Education, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South in Kumasi, also said the ministry is faced with a Gh 10 million debt, which occurred through the supply of chalk.

Napo also disclosed that Special School debt stood at Gh 4.7 million by the time the NPP took over political power, adding, the NDCs so-called free Senior High School (SHS) programmme also left behind a debt of GH 33 million.

Paemuka Checks

Meanwhile, painstaking checks conducted by reporters of ‘paemuka.com’ have revealed that whatever Napo said about Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman on Asempa FM is the palpable truth.

For instance, ‘paemuka.com’ checks also confirmed that Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman’s tenure as the Minister of Education resulted in nothing but a huge debt, which almost crippled the education ministry.
