Speaking to Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday, Appiah said the initiative is in line with the implementation of the new curriculum.

“We do Primary 2, Primary 4 and Primary 6. This year we were going to do Primary 2, but the first one was with Primary 4 now we want to do Primary 2 because we think that is where at least we getting the feel of what it is,” he said.
