This man paaa what does he want? Is he after coup d’etat or what? Please Mr Vormawor the peace that we have in Ghana don’t take us back to our old days and your personal interest is plunging our beloved country into something and we all know very well that times are hard but don’t use you personal interest to distroy Ghana and with all that you are doing, you think any president will come to power today and things we will change at once? big no the NDC will also come and mess it more because mahama is having only four years and for that four years do you think he will work for the interest of Ghanaians? he will make sure all that he left before 2016 he will make sure he succeed in everything or if it’s a position that you are fighting for then leave Ghanaians alone.
My fellow Ghana, we should stop paying huge sums of money going to our universities let us focus on Technical and vocational training so that by the end of everything you can start doing something for yourself.
