They minister of education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has taken a quick swipe at the former Minister of education and former running mate for the NDC in the 2020 general election, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, for her comments made on the Free Senior High School and the massive performance by the first batch of the policy beneficiaries. She has described the performance as not being the true reflection of the performance.
Dr Osei Adutwum, speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, believed that Jane Naana should not be talking like that because she might want to score some political points because her time had a lot of things going wrong in the education sector. He gave a statistic that for instance in maths 23.9% of students had A1 to C6 in 2015. Under Nana Addo, 66.5% of the students had A1 to C6 even under the stress of covid-19 in 2020. "Speaking here in such a manner in Ghana means you are speaking to the global world and this will deny some students scholarship opportunities because the former minister has said that students cheated", Dr Adutwum said.
"The students also demonstrated because they believed that they had the questions which turned out to be false because there was a website that portrayed to have the questions that were meant come in the WASSCE but turned out to be a scam, and that is why they demonstrated", he added. He therefore urged her to say the right thing at the right time in order not to put the long standing reputation of the WAEC in disrepute.
