JUST IN: NDC wants Education Minister sacked for insulting JDM over SHS Placement Crisis

The National Democratic Congress, (NDC), has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack his Education Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempreh for insulting  its flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.

The Education Minister, while responding to various questions on an Accra Radio, Asempa FM on the experiences of parents and their wards at the GES Solution Center in Accra, attributed the crisis to an alleged plot by political opponents.

The NDC in a Statement signed by the National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, said, the party is aware of some unpalatable comments made by the Education Minister, to the effect that, Mr. Mahama was responsible for busing individuals to the Independence Square just to create a scene and undermine the ongoing Computerized School Selection Program System, (CSSPS), process at the Independence Square in Accra.
