“I have chanced on some information that points to the fact that a lot is going on in the education sector. I know what I am talking about and Kwami, you know that I do not talk without facts. A lot is happening, and the construction of new science laboratories is also ongoing.

“This morning I was enquiring from Nana Akomea [leading member of the New Patriotic Party, NPP] who was a member of the panel, why the government has made all these massive investments in the country’s education sector but very little is heard about them.

“The building of new science laboratories across the country explains why examination results in the sciences have greatly improved, and I think this is what the government should be talking about,” Kwesi Pratt said. “The education sector undoubtedly has challenges that we all read about and are aware of.”

Mr. Kwesi Pratt asserted that it is common knowledge that there are evident economic difficulties. He did, however, say that he is “extremely surprised and impressed” by what the Akufo-Addo administration has accomplished in the field of education and that the government ought to do a better job of promoting these accomplishments.

On the other hand, Nana Akomea stated that he disagrees with Mr. Pratt on the digitalization issue. He went on to say that a significant portion of Ghanaians value digitalization, according to NPP polls, and that he believes all Ghanaians should be made aware of both digitalization and education.
