The Education Minister who has come under a lot of pressure in the couple of days has insisted that he is only doing his job to make Ghana’s education better. Hon. Yaw Adutwum, who also serves as the MP for Bosomtwe was a school proprietor before being called to Ghana where he served as a deputy minister of Education during President Akufo-Addo’s first term. His performance made people nominate him for substantive minister for education.
Yaw Adutwum was today, Monday, January 24, 2022 in the studios of Citi FM to answer some questions arising from the education sector. Bernard Avle and his colleagues went ahead to pose a number of issues affecting the education sector. Some of them included issues with E-Block, feeding, textbooks, academic calendar etc. One of the interesting questions that popped up was why students pay to write examination and later when the results come out they still need to buy checkers to access their results online.
It is on record that BECE and WASSCE graduates have to buy checkers in order to access online portals and check their results. Even after buying the cards, the online portal allows only 3 times for the person to do the checking. Yaw Adutwum admitted that he knew of this and clarified that government pays for all examinations of students at the primary and secondary levels. When posed again with the result checkers he said, “I will look into it”.
