Former Education Minister was an Embarrassment – Education Minister

Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang was an “embarrassment” and a “disgrace” as Minister of Education in the John Mahama administration, her successor Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh has said.

“Her four-year tenure under John Mahama was an embarrassment,” Dr Opoku Prempeh told Kwadwo Asare-Baffuor Acheampong (KABA) on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen political talk show on Tuesday, 14 November.

Adducing evidence to back his damning verdict on the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Dr Opoku Prempeh said Prof Opoku-Agyemang as Minister left the education sector burdened with the following debts per the Mahama administration’s own handing over notes:

Feeding Grants for Colleges of Education – GHS36 million

Feeding Grants for Special Schools – GHS4.7 million

SHS Subsidy – GHS24 million

Progressively Free Senior High School debt – GHS33 million

Capitation Grant, GHS8 million

GETFund debt – GHS3.7 billion

“She doesn’t understand education”, Dr Opoku Prempeh insisted.

According to him, Prof Opoku-Agyemang’s deputy, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has also made peddling of falsehood his stock-in-trade and has entered opposition with that penchant.

In Dr Opoku Prempeh’s estimation, the success rate of the free senior high school programme of the Akufo-Addo government is 90%.
