…….Ghana is not a hopeless country..Really ? Who said so or is Ablakwa talking about the unqualified youth in sensitive Government positions?
Deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has reminded Ghanaians who are pessimists and speak as if Ghana is a hopeless country to revise their notes.
According to Mr. Ablakwa, there is the need to start telling the success story of Ghana to the world and stop criticizing because the country has chalked many successes which need to be told.
The deputy minister, speaking at the launch of Abbeam Technology Institute urged Ghanaians to stay calm and not be dismayed by the economic situation of the country because according to him there is nothing easy to come by on earth.
“We speak and behave as if there is no hope in Ghana, whatever difficulties you are going through it is just for a period of time so do not speak as if Ghana is a hopeless country; try and tell the success story of Ghana,” he urged.
Mr. Ablakwa called for the need for Ghanaians to co-exist peacefully with each other, be each other’s keeper and ensure that there is safety social networks which make everybody feel that he or she is part of society.
Touching on what government intends doing to uplift the image of tertiary institutions, Mr. Ablakwa revealed that his outfit has charged the Ghana Accreditation Board (GAB) to ensure every tertiary institution complies with the GAB requirement for establishing a school.
“Though we want more private tertiary institutions to supplement the existing ones of the state, we need to be careful not to compromise their quality, we need to make sure that their quality is always guaranteed,” he said.
