Deputy Education Minister-designate, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour has advised teachers in the country to eschew absenteeism, lateness, laziness, drunkenness and other social vices, which he said are formidable obstacles to sound upbringing of children.
Reverend John Ntim Fordjour made the comment at a sod-cutting ceremony for the installation of a telecommunication mast at Assin Homaho to improve telephone and internet services.
Speaking at the ceremony, the soon to be Deputy Minister of Education said the Akufo-Add government is committed in offering free and equal access to quality education for an accelerated national development.
The Assin South Member of Parliament urged teachers and relevant stakeholders in education to resolve to work hard to promote government’s policy of providing free education to all eligible Ghanaian school age going students.
Hon John Ntim Fordjour this week will be vetted by the Parliament Appointment committee on his new appointment as the Deputy Education Minister. When vetted and approved, President Akufo-Addo will sworn him into office.
