Young Activist Urges Government To Scrap MPs Ex-Gratia And Use It To Fund E-Learning. Young Political Activist, Emmanuel Abankwah Kesse popularly known as Olumanba has officially launched an online campaign dubbed ‘Scrap MPs Ex-Gratia And Use It To Fund E-Learning’. The online campaign which kicked off last Saturday has received a lot of attention from Ghanaians. About 500people have endorsed the campaign so far.
According to Olumanba, if the government can’t afford E-learning gadgets like phones and procure generators and tv sets for areas where there are no electricity and network coverage, the government can get revenue for such course by scraping MPs Ex-Gratia.
‘We can’t afford to lose our wards to Covid 19 and the only means by which we can prevent the spread is by introducing E-Learning. So I think the government can get revenue to procure E-Learning gadgets and generators for areas where there are no electricity by scrapping MPs Ex-Gratia’, he stressed.
Explaining why he has decided to do the campaign online, he said, he is adhering to the directives on social gathering. “I have received calls from a lot people who have interest to join this demonstration but because of the restrictions on social gatherings, we have decided to do it online.”
‘Anyone who is interested to join online can send his or her name and picture to 0240093159 for the flyer, he noted. Young Activist Urges Government To Scrap MPs Ex-Gratia And Use It To Fund E-Learning.
