Mr.Mathew Opoku Prempeh, Minister of Education has said that he has never in his life received any scholarship from the Ghana Education Trust Fund for studies at Harvard University as a Minister of Education.
According to him,he has noted with dismay a news carried by some media houses in the country that suggest that he has as a Minister, received a scholarship from the Ghana Education Trust Fund for studies at Harvard.
He said, the impression is false and calculated to cause embarrassment and public ridicule.
“I have not received any form of sponsorship for any program or course of study from getfund of scholarship secretariat since becoming a Minister.
However, I have been the recipient of getfund award in 2014 to participate In a 3-week certificate program at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.
I urge the public to disregard this story, borne out of mischief and lies, intended to cause disaffection. He said in a press release copied to Broadcastergh.com this morning.
