Badu Nkansah Publications has apologized for inappropriate Ewe content in their new textbook.

This was after some Ghanaians threatened to burn their books if they do not apologise and recall the books from the market.

According to their statement, their textbook was approved but with instruction to work on some aspects of it and a few copies went out which was not intentional on their part.

They also indicated that they have recalled the said copies from the market.

Meanwhile, Minister of Education Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum will be expected in the coming days to appear before parliament to answer questions relating to newly-authored history textbooks for students.
