Audio: Akufo-Addo is the only person who can sack me as a Minister – NAPO

Education Minister, Dr Mathew Opoku-Prempeh, has been reacting to calls for him to resign following the challenges that have rocked the Senior High School (SHS) placements nationwide.

According to NAPO as he is affectionately called, some elements who want his downfall are waiting for him to resign but he will not.

To him, the only person who has the power to end his tenure at the Ministry is the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“I know some people want me to resign because of the confusion that has hit the placement system. But I won’t pay attention to them. If the person who gave me the job, tells me today that I should resign, I will gladly do it,” he said in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen show, Tuesday.

Thousands of distraught parents and their wards have since Friday besieged the Black Star Square to have issues with their placements resolved as some have complained of being placed in schools they did not choose.

But, Dr Opoku-Prempeh, reacting to the confusion, accused the opposition National Democratic Congress of busing people to cause confusion at the Independence Square.
