We Toiled For The GETFund - Dr Duffour

Dr Kwabena Duffuor, a former minister of finance, describes the news of Ghana Senior High School pupils using restrooms as dorms due to lack of facilities as appalling and nothing short of filthy.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) was compelled to discipline the Headmaster and the Senior Housemaster after a viral video of the incident in the Tamale-based institution went viral.

The two officials have been asked to step aside for investigations to be conducted on the matter.

Dr Duffuor weighed in on the conversation by recalling how, while he served as Finance Minister under late Professor John Evans Atta Mills’ tenure. He recalled how they toiled assiduously to provide funds to the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund).

He stated that this was done “to conscientiously provide a deluge of boarding facilities for existing schools, and also constructed new schools with such facilities.”

He is concerned about the fact that, despite the nation’s ardent desire to offer free education to its children, “we must conscientiously also ensure that our children acquire education in dignity”.

Dr Duffuor called on policymakers to ensure that enough facilities are provided “to support the educational transformation process”.

He also agreed with the GES’ decision to sanction investigations by requesting the two officials of the school to step aside.

“Our beloved Motherland is the only country we have so let us work together to build the Better Ghana we all desire and deserve,” Mr Duffour urged.
