The Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, has issued a cautionary message to educators, urging them to exercise vigilance when it comes to politicians and their pronouncements.
He stressed that politicians often display a facade of unity behind closed doors but manipulate facts for their own political agendas when addressing the public.
Speaking at the launch of the 2023 Teacher Prize Day in Accra on August 23, 2023, Dr. Adutwum revealed that politicians, including those from his own party, tend to criticize government initiatives while simultaneously benefiting from the system.
He called for increased discernment among Ghanaians, especially teachers, when scrutinizing the claims and promises made by politicians.
Dr. Adutwum expressed his belief that politicians are inclined to downplay progress and misrepresent achievements for personal gain.
