*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NDC is to discuss the seemingly

unpopularity of President Mills among the non-voting population in the country.

During the recent visits to some schools in the Ashanti Region by the Regional

Minister, Mr. Kofi Opoku Manu, it was discovered that most of the pupils

recognized Nana Addo as the President of Ghana, instead of President Mills. In

the Mampong municipality, for instance, most of the pupils mentioned Nana Addo,

former Presidents Rawlings and Kufuor as being the President of Ghana (Ghanaweb
