Education Minister Pays His 96-Year-Old Class 1 Teacher A Visit
Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, the minister of education, has emphasized the value of teaching throughout his academic career. “I am forever grateful to them all,” he wrote in a social media post.
He specifically brought up two of his instructors whom he had lately encountered—one at a church service and the other when he paid her a visit at her home.
“I visited and honored Ms. Clara Oppong at her residence in Jachie. 96-year-old Ms. Clara was my primary 1 teacher at Jachie Anglican Primary School. In addition to her commitment to teaching, her kind words and motivation built a solid foundation for me,” he said with pictures of his visit.
The Minister mentioned that, before his meeting with Ms. Clara, he had also honored and met with one of the professors who had helped him prepare for his Common Entrance Exams.
“I was happy to honor Mr. Ankamah at church yesterday. Mr. Ankamah was one of the teachers who prepared me for my Common Entrance exams,” he stated also with photos.
After serving as Matthew Opoku Prempeh’s deputy during the first term of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo administration, Dr. Osei Adutwum, who is also a member of parliament for Bosomtwe, was promoted to substantive minister in 2021.
