A member of the Communication team of the NPP, Ellen Ama Daaku, has said that she agrees that the government is late in providing textbooks for school, but at least the money will stay in Ghana because the Ministry of Education has given contract and insisted that the textbooks must be printed in Ghana.
Ellen Ama Daaku made this statement on 'Good Morning Ghana' on Metro television this morning, 21st June 2021, when she assured Ghanaians that a contract for the printing of the textbooks has issued.
According to her, the government didn't want to print the books outside Ghana because that's what people were doing when they were given contracts. They send it to China for printing.
She revealed that the Ministry of Education has insisted that they need Ghanaian printers who will print the textbooks here.
"The Ministry of Education wants the money to stay in Ghana. I agree that we are late, but at least the money will stay here so, I beg them to have some patience it will come." She said
She added that the contracts were given somewhere last week, and they are supposed to start printing, but she hasn't followed up to see whether they have commenced the printing.
