Don’t drag my son into politics, he isn’t in SHS, says Adutwum

The education minister’s comment follows criticism that he has enrolled his son in a private SHS, indicating his lack of confidence in the system.

Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the minister of education has stated that his son is not old enough to be a beneficiary of government’s flagship Free Senior High School programme.

His comment follows criticism that he has enrolled his son in a private senior high school, indicating his lack of confidence in government’s Free SHS programme.

Addressing journalists in Accra over the weekend, Dr Adutwum said: “I think politics has taken a new low, my son should never be a part of my political career and secondly I don’t have a son who is old enough to be in a Senior High School.

“So suffice it to say that I have no further comment on that, my son is not old enough to be in the Senior High School”.

He added: “We have the best Senior High Schools in this country in the public sector, so if somebody says his son is not going to the best Senior High Schools in this country, I don’t know how that is news. My son is not old enough to be in the Senior High School.”

Meanwhile, Dr Adutwum said government has so far spent over GHC 7 billion on the implementation of its flagship Free Senior High School programme since 2017.
