Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum

Dr Yaw Adutwum, Minister of Education, has expressed commitment to help develop a Universal Policy to guide all Faith-Based Schools (FBSs) in the country.

The Minister assured heads of Christian Mission Schools (CMSs) in the country that he would liaise and work together with all Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) to bring finality to the current challenges confronting the schools.

This was contained in a press statement signed on behalf of the Minister and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra.

According to the statement, Dr Adutwum on Wednesday May 12, 2021 met heads of CMSs to discuss among other things, long standing challenges confronting FBOs, including the recent issue at the Wesley Girls High School.

The statement said the group appealed to the Minister to finalise a Memorandum of Understanding which was submitted to the Ministry few months ago by the FBOs.

“Earlier this week, the Minister met with the Muslim Parliamentary Caucus and a representative of the Chief Imam to discuss similar issues,” the statement said.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
