“Surprisingly, I've been surprised”; Manasseh Azure Awuni reacts to the controversial text books.

The “History of Ghana, Text Book 3 by Badu Nkansah and “Golden English, Basic 4 Text Book by Okyere Baafi Alexander, have sparked great fuss on social media and traditional media channels due to prejudicative content in these books. 

Some Ghanaians, especially Ewes have exhibited their anger as the books sort to mischaracterise and stereotype them as tribalists and racists. 

However, the famous freelance journalist and investigative reporter, Manasseh Azure Awuni, has broken silence on the issue via his Facebook posts. 

According to him, he was surprise to see such an unpleasant content embodied in text books for students. 

He wrote that 

“I restrained myself from commenting because I didn't believe anyone writing a text book could put such distasteful content in there. Surprisingly, I've been surprised.”

Therefore, he calls for the right people to write the various text books for pupils through a proper scrutiny and assessment of these text books by NaCCA before approval. 

He wrote that 

“Let's allow the right people to write our text books.”. 

He wrote this on his Facebook page today.
