Julius Debrah urged the people to trust Mahama because; although he does not feed them with goodies, he is capable of creating opportunities for them to get it.
The Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah has asked Ghanaians whom they would chose between one who offers them fish, and another who shows them how to fish. He threw this question to the residents of the Muslim Community at Nsawam Zongo, whom he visited as part of his campaign tour of the Eastern Region.
Julius Debrah while encouraging the people to vote massively for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the coming election, appealed to them to trust Mahama. In his speech, he disclosed the various plans the ruling party has in store for the Muslim communities if given the chance to continue in office.
According to the Chief of Staff, from next year , the NDC will make Arabic a core subject in schools. That is, the language can then be studied, with examination written on it, just the way they do with the English Language. He explained that the plan will first be implemented in the Senior High Schools from 2017. Then in 2018, it will be extended to the Junior High Schools.
Julius Debrah also disclosed that training of teachers in Arabic has already commenced at the Wenchi College of Education. These teachers, at the end of their programme, will be posted to schools where they will be teaching the subject.
Speaking further, the Chief of Staff said that the government also have plans of establishing Islamic Senior High Schools as well as Islamic Junior Technical Schools. This according to him, will be implemented under the Islamic Education Unit. He explained that the plan is aimed at producing graduates who will be able to gain employment in other Arabic countries.
Asking his audience whom they will trust between one who gives them fish and another who shows them how to fish, he urged them to vote massively for the NDC.
