The Deputy Education Minister Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says the ministry has begun taking steps to ensure recent measures announced by the Bank of Ghana are complied with by institutions under the ministry.
Joy News has learnt some educational institutions including the Ghana Institute of Public Administration (GIMPA) are still charging in dollars despite new regulations by the Bank of Ghana stopping all financial transactions in dollars.
Okudzeto Ablakwah told Joy News officials of the ministry met, Tuesday, to assess the pervasiveness of the situation and has begun implementation of the Bank of Ghana directives.
He said a team?will soon go?round to ensure the enforcement of the measures.
The Deputy Education Minister said the Ghana Education Service has been tasked to ensure schools at the basic level comply with the new measures whilst the National Council for Tertiary Education will handle schools in the tertiary institutions.
“We will give ourselves this week to ensure that communication formally goes to all these institutions through the two agencies.
“We are hoping that from next week we will have a team that will go round to see how the enforcement has been.?
The Deputy Minister also asked the general public?to formally alert the ministry through its complaint centre set up to resolve the issue of institution heads alleged to be over charging parents before admitting their wards.
He said the complaints centre will be beefed up to be able to handle the additional responsibility.
