Deputy Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has assured that the Ghana Education Service (GES) will deal with the National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye for visiting some Senior High Schools in the Ashanti Region to allegedly campaign.

On Sunday, July 12, Nana B incurred the wrath of Ghanaians after photos of him and his team talking to some students went viral on social media.

It is alleged that Nana B campaigned to some final year students of the Anglican Senior High School in a classroom whilst government has banned parents and guardians from visiting their wards.

However, Nana B has denied reports that he toured some senior high schools without permission to supposedly campaign for his party.

According to him, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is just churning out “vile and fruitless” propaganda as that wasn’t the case.

However, Dr. Adutwum speaking in an interview on GH One television and monitored by ABC News condemned the actions of his party fellow for not adhering to the rules and directive of the President.

The Deputy Education Minister described the actions of Nana B as unacceptable and stated that he will be brought to book irrespective of the party he belongs to.

He noted the GES will handle the case and sanctions will be meted out to him to serve as a deterrent to anyone who flouts the laws.

“If he went to classrooms is unacceptable, it’s totally unacceptable. It really doesn’t matter to me who you are; protocol is protocol, rules are rules. You don’t do that! I’m a Deputy Minister, we’ll carry it up and I think the rules are clear. And any local jurisdiction where anybody does that the local authorities have control so the rules are very clear and I don’t think it’s acceptable for us to do what clearly the law says we should not do. This is not a political issue for me, to me it’s an education issue, it’s a COVID-19 issue and I’ll bring it to the attention of Ghana Education Service, they’re the ones who run the schools,” he said.
