Speaking on Newsfile show on Joy News this morning, Samson Lardy made it clear that the statement which was made by the minister is the absolute truth. According to him, the current education system in Ghana cannot produce the needed experts that will help transform the economy.
He added that Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has demonstrated to be a leader. He heaped praises on him for making such bold statement during a worldwide Education summit. He believes that the Ghanaian government and all other world leaders should accept the truth and fix the education system, especially in Africa.

This comes after Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum made speech during the UN Summit on Education on Tuesday. In his speech, he made it clear that the current education system in Ghana and also in Africa is quite not good. He added that school children are always made to learn what the teacher teaches them.
He believes that no matter the investment government makes in the educational system, it will never yield any better result unless the system is changed entirely.
"I go to schools upon schools and I speak with the students and when I finish with them, I say who has a question for me? No hands go up. A hand is yet to go up in all my encounters in Ghanaian classrooms"
"We have tamed the children. We just want them to write down what we tell them at the day of exams and we say you are the best student the country has ever known" he said.
