Education Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh writes…..

I have noted with dismay a news carried by some media, that suggests that I have as a Minister, received a scholarship from the Ghana Education Trust Fund for studies at Harvard.

This impression is false and calculated to cause embarrassment and public ridicule. I have not received any form of sponsorship for any program or course of study from GETFund of scholarship secretariat since becoming a Minister.

However, I have been a recipient of GETFund award in 2014 to participate in a 3-week certificate program at the Kennedy School of Govt, Harvard University.

I urge the public to disregard this story, borne out of mischief and lies, intended to cause disaffection.
