The Minister of Education, Hon. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has dismissed news making rounds on social media claiming he has awarded a $350m contract to supply the new school uniforms for Junior High School students which was launched by the Ghana Education Service.

In a statement signed by the Deputy Communications Director Kwasi Obeng-Fosu, has dismissed  the publication describing it as false which has no merit but rather the figment of someone’s imagination designed to cause disaffection towards the Hon. Minister.

“The Minister wishes to state emphatically, for the avoidance of doubt, that the story is false, without merit and the figment of someone’s imagination, designed to cause disaffection towards him.”

The attention of the Minister of Education, Hon. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh,  has been drawn to a news item circulating on social media, claiming that a relative of his, has been awarded a $350m contract to supply the new school uniforms for Junior High School students launched by the Ghana Education Service earlier today.

The Minister wishes to state emphatically, for the avoidance of doubt, that the story is false, without merit and the figment of someone’s imagination, designed to cause disaffection towards him. Indeed, it will be noted that at various points in the story, the so-called relative, said to be Ebenezer Opoku Prempeh,  is variously referred to as his brother, son and nephew. The Minister wishes to emphasize that he has no relative by that name.

The general public is therefore invited to disregard this story and treat it with the contempt it deserves.
