Stop playing politics with these two things - Johnny Hughes tells top Government Officials

Public education and food security in Ghana have come under immense scrutiny of late as the Nana Akuffo Addo-led government has delivered less than what they promised to Ghanaians.

Johnny Hughes of TV3 has criticised the New Patriotic Party for over politicisation of Education and Agricultural sectors. He made these claims on TV3's Newday today, Monday, 30th August, 2021.

The Vociferous Television Personality is of the view that, the officials at the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service (GES) should be blamed greatly for the influx of politics into the education sector.

He said, " Giving free Senior High School Education is good. However, the necessary materials and measures should be made available to ensure it's success. The Minister of Education (Dr Osei Yaw Adutwum) owns a school. I do not think he would be happy to run his own school like how our public schools are being run".

" How well are the key stakeholders (teachers) resourced? Teachers welfare is not important to you anymore. What you usually do is to promise, but no delivery".

On Agriculture and food supply, Johnny Hughes has this to say : " Do not play politics with our food. If one hundred Ghana cedis (GhC 100. 00) cannot cater for an individual's food need for a week, then your planting food and job is a fluke".

The minister of food and agriculture, Dr Akoto Afiriyie hinted over the weekend that, Ghana would be self sufficient in rice production by the year 2024. He felt Ghana was about to be self reliant in terms of food production. However, the last year's drought did not make that a reality.

"If you are blaming food shortage on drought, then where are the dams you promised to construct for our rural communities?" Johnny Hughes quizzed rhetorically.
