Deputy National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Edem Agbana has pointed fingers at President Akufo-Addo over attempts to distort the country’s history, particularly, concerning Voltarians.
This comes after the publishing of controversial textbooks that make disparaging comments against Ewes and the people of Volta Region.
According to him, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) an offshoot of the United Party (UP) has gained notoriety for twisting Ghana’s history in their favour whenever they are in government.
Speaking on Yen Sempa on Onua Fm on Monday 15, March Mr. Agbana said “This has been the norm of the United Party(UP) tradition, now New Patriotic Party(NPP). For instance, Victor Owusu of the blessed memory during Busia era addressed the Ewes as inward-looking people, and it almost ignited war in Ghana. Nana Addo in support of this obnoxious utterance has added to the new textbooks to execute their old-time agenda.”
He added, “Volta Region Students Association (VRSA) cannot sit for this nonsense to go on unattended to, we are going to burn the books today at the offices of Ghana Education Service in Accra”.
