But the Deputy Minister for Education Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has in statement debunked the reports, indicating that “This rather abysmal attempt at creating disaffection for the Government defies common sense especially at a time the Ministry of Education is recruiting more teachers and lecturers”.

Below is the full statement

You are kindly being invited to ignore and treat with utter contempt that pernicious publication in circulation claiming that an agreement has been reached with the IMF to expunge 4,000 teachers from the payroll.

This rather abysmal attempt at creating disaffection for the Government defies common sense especially at a time the Ministry of Education is recruiting more teachers and lecturers.

Over the past few days, some 2,500 Mathematics and Science teachers have been receiving their appointment letters to teach at the basic level when the 2016/2017 academic year commences next month.

Additionally, at the tertiary level, we have obtained financial clearance from the Ministry of Finance to employ another 1,018 lecturers and staff.

Falsehood shall always be defeated. Truth stands.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa (MP)

 [Deputy Minister for Education].
