Ghana’s Education Minister Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has stated in a recent submission that what the NPP government have achieved in the education sector is far more than what Kwame Nkrumah ever did.
His comments was made when he was speaking to journalists after handing over an AstroTurf pitch to his constituents in the Manhyia South Constituency.
“Free Education is a project in evolution. We have done well under the leadership of his Excellency the President. The third-year students of the Free SHS programme are in school. Generally, we haven’t heard anything, but when you live in Accra and Kumasi, you will think that things are falling apart. But when you go across the country its not like that, if we have been able to move the population to 800,000 to nearly 1.2 billion, 400,000 more students, ask yourself, if we still remained in the old dispensation, what would have happened to these students?
What we have achieved in the educational sector is unprecedented in the annals of the history of this country. Not even Kwame Nkrumah achieved what we have done,” he said.
