Prez Akufo-Addo’s record in the area of education is unmatched and uncontestable – Minister


Education Minister Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has described President Akufo-Addo’s record in education as unmatched and uncontested.

He noted that less than 299, 649 students enrolled in the various senior high schools in the country under the Mahama-led administration.

However, in 2022 465,000 students enrolled in various senior schools.


“These are facts, you cannot contest this. The good of Ghana knows President Akufo-Addo is moving forward in education. STEM schools are being oversubscribed. This is under President Akufo-Addo.

The Minister made these comments when he interacted with some school placement call centre personnel.

Meanwhile, the Minister has encouraged parents of students who have recently been admitted to senior high schools to send their children to school even if they have not met the requirements outlined in the prospectus.

The Minister stated that parents or guardians of admitted wards should not be concerned about meeting all of the requirements on the prospectus before enrolling their children.

“Parents of Ghana, if your child has not reported to school yet because you are waiting to get all the items on the prospectus, I want you to know that my head teachers want to see you in school immediately.

“So even if you don’t have all your items, go to school the headmasters can’t wait to see you and welcome you in their schools,” he said on Tuesday.

Some parents have expressed concern about their children’s inability to attend school because they did not meet the requirements outlined in the prospectus.

Others claimed the prospectus items ranged from GHC 3,000 to GHC 6,000.

However, the minister believes that parents should not be concerned about the prospectus and meeting the requirement.

He encouraged the students to attend school because, if they were determined, they would one day tell their stories about how they had few possessions but managed to complete their education.

He stated that as a people, we should take advantage of the free SHS and free TVET to help change the future of our children, families, and the great nation we call Ghana.
