You don't have to lie to be relevant: Okudzeto to Opoku Prempeh

By Justice Kofi Bimpeh

Former Deputy Minister of Education Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says the current Minister of Education Mathew Opoku Prempeh does not need to peddle falsehood to be seen as relevant or working for Ghana.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said the response of the sector minister when he appeared before Parliament this week to answer questions regarding the implementation of the Free SHS policy was false and blatant distortion.

Education Minister Mathew Opoku Prempeh said the former NDC government did not provide funds for its progressively free SHS policy and also scholarships which were announced for needy SHS students were no where to be traced.

Reacting to the comments of the sector minister on Radio Gold's "Alhaji&Alhaji", Mr Okudzeto Ablakwa said all the comments by the minister is false.
