Education not failing - Mahama
President John Dramani Mahama has refuted assertions that Ghana's education is declining under his leadership.
The flag bearer of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) said "It’s absolutely not true", adding that Ghana is becoming an educational hub in Africa.
He said the nation's education is getting better every year. He, therefore, called on the media to do their research and not be conveyor belts for people’s false statements as Ghana is performing better in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
President Mahama was speaking at the inauguration of Paakuso Community Day Senior High School as part of his campaign tour in the Ashanti Region.
According to him, three Ghanaians female students were awarded best students in this year's WASSCE examination in West Africa.
The President also revealed that government distributed 100 million exercise books to students this year.
