The world can only advance cohesion and solidarity amongst displaced persons and help create the right environment for a purposeful dignified life if there was access to education, President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has said.
As the government prepares to embark on a Solar Rooftop Programme for all its ministries and agencies, an energy consultant believes this initiative is laudable as it will bode well for Ghana’s renewable energy prospects.
Speaking on Eyewitness News, the consultant, Kwabena Nyanteh, however said it is too early to pat government on the back because no concrete plan is as yet being implemented.
The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition has questioned the need for the setting up of a voluntary education fund by the government.
The Coalition believes that the fund cannot solve the funding challenges the free senior high school education policy will encounter, and has asked government to come clear on how it intends to fund the programme.
Chairman of the Coalition, Bright Appiah told Joy News “If government is calling for a voluntary contribution fund, then it raised uncertainty in terms of how the government is harmonizing some of these scholarships that existed already and how it can feed into the larger policy scheme.”
