President of policy think thank, IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe has questioned why a Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Tertiary, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is worried about school children joining the New Patriotic Party's "Won Gbo" demonstration.

Franklin Cudjoe took to facebook and reacted to statements made by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa that the Education Ministry will punish school heads whose pupils took part in the demonstration.

Below is the statement by Franklin Cudjoe:

“Dear Deputy Minister of Education, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa for North Tongu 2012, seriously why are you angry at kids who were spontaneously responding to cheers of what everyone knows and feel in the country?

That due to excessively bad economic management, we have all been plunged into needless darkness? Please allow the kids to express themselves. What about visits by our President to such schools or when his convoy passes through villages and towns?

I suppose we all have seen school kids coming out of their classrooms to wave and cheer the President out of normal school hours.

I suppose you have important work to do to ensure that the very very poor performance of pupils in the Volta Region such as just 11 candidates in the whole region attaining aggregate six in the BECE in 2013 is ended.

Please I am ready to support you to focus on over turning the plummeting fortunes of education in Ghana. Education is not propaganda. It is serious business”.
