The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akuffo Addo, has indicated that it’s was time Africans fund their own Education.
He made this revelation during the 2018 Global Partnership for Education Summit held at Dakar, Senegal.
The President was accompanied by the Minister of Education, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh and other state officials to the 3rd International Conference on the theme “Replenishment of the Funds of the Global Partnership for Education.”
According to the Education Minister,he couldn’t agree more with the President when he stated that, “We CANNOT depend on other people to finance the education of our continent”.
According to the Minister, he wasn’t saying that to turn his back on all the people who have committed to help the Education in Africa, but that, if Africans make their policy dependent on other people, when their policy changes, Africans will suffer.
“But if we (Africans) make the policies ourselves, we will be in control of our own destiny.” he concluded.
