Dr Opoku-Prempeh the Minister of Education wants Ghanaians to believe that the National Democratic Congress the NDC bused people to the Independence square to cause confusion.
This is very strange and a sad one coming from the MoE. Let us not draw in the NDC to cover up for the poor show. Rather face the challenge and clean the mess. This blame game will take us no whereas a country.
Let us create an efficient system that is reliable so that, no one or group of persons like the NDC will get the chance to bus people to the Independence Square.
The School Placement wahala started way back at the time of school selection, then the hitches rockked the site and everything was in shambles. Why not face the challenges and work to deal with them?
Leaders must face the challenges that their work posses to them and deal with them instead of blaming others for their inefficiencies.
Some sections of the public have asked the minister to resign however, the minister believes some elements who want his downfall are waiting for him to resign but he will not.
He holds the view that it is only Nana Addo who has the power to sack him.
“I know some people want me to resign because of the confusion that has hit the placement system. But I won’t pay attention to them. If the person who gave me the job, tells me today that I should resign, I will gladly do it,” he said in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen show, Tuesday.
Thousands of distraught parents and their wards have since Friday besieged the Black Star Square to have issues with their placements resolved as some have complained of being placed in schools they did not choose.
It is very strange to start blaming the NDC for the School Placement mess the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service have caused. Let us take responsibility for our actions.
