Nana Addo and the NPP must understand that people have the right to belong to any association of their choice. The threats to the tutors and students of the Nalerigu Nursing and Midwifery School is not going to help matters at all. We all have the right to freedom of speech and freedom to belong to associations.

What is the essence of TEIN and TESCON in tertiary institutions? Must tertiary students seek for permission before leaving campus to attend programmes?

Prior to the 2016 elections Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia and Hajia Alima Mahama (M.P and minister for local government) gathered students of Nalerigu Senior High School and campaigned within the school premises and no one questioned the headmaster not to talk of the teachers who were the brains behind it.

Nana Addo and his cohorts are now telling us that we have the right to freedom of speech but not after speech. What he was fighting for yesterday is even more relevant today.

Was he fighting for the ordinary Ghanaian or he was doing it because he was not directly holding onto power?

The students are right thinking people. Nobody forced them to apologise to the former president but the current prevailing situation. Don't be deceived that they were town people in uniform. No, they are legitimate students of the Nurses College.

You can't lie to power and continue to lie in order to hold onto power. Ghanaians are fed up, students and even your NABCO employees are all fed up with the lies.

I will appeal to you to channel all your energy to solving your nemesis that is the 1week 1scandal and get Ghana working again.

As for the nursing students, they will continue with the 'JM we are sorry' mantra because that is the exact feeling for many Ghanaians.
