Okudzeto Calls For Explanation Of ‘Offensive Ewe’ Textbooks In Parliament By Education Minister
Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has filed an urgent request in Parliamentary for the Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum to answer to newly-authored history textbooks titled ‘History of Ghana’.
Samuel Okudzeto in a Facebook post on Sunday stated that the book contains “bigoted publications” targeted at denigrating the Ewe ethnic group.
Describing the publication as “offensive, divisive and incendiary” the former Deputy Education Minister stated that it was important for the Education Minister to answer some questions relating to the development before students in schools get polluted with them.
“Were they approved by any of his Ministry’s agencies and what steps Government is taking to purge our schools and bookshops from offensive, divisive and incendiary publications of this nature?”
The textbooks have generated a public uproar since portions of them went viral on social media over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the publisher of the History of Ghana textbook, Badu Nkansah has rendered an unqualified apology to Ghanaians.
