A founding member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, says the rise in corruption happening in every sector of the country is an indication that integrity and high morale standards are at their lowest level in Ghana at the moment.

Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe cited the recent allegations of corruption within the Scholarship Secretariat as one of several corrupt cases indicative of declining integrity in Ghana.

He expressed these views during the launch of the Relief and Aid International Educational Scholarship in Accra.

“We have seen quite a lot in this country. Normally, scholarships are meant for the needy. I went to university with a scholarship. I went to secondary school with a scholarship. I schooled with a scholarship. 

But now, scholarships meant for the needy are given to those who don’t need them. It tells you that integrity is at its lowest level in Ghana at the moment.”

In another development, a political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo, in his address criticised the current structure of the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy, arguing that it fails to uphold quality educational standards.

The political science lecturer at the University of Ghana argued that the policy should have been focused on academically talented yet financially disadvantaged students to alleviate the financial burden on the government while ensuring educational standards are maintained.

“Government is trying to provide free education to everybody, free SHS to everybody. But it knows it doesn’t have the resources to do it. But because we have promised that we will do it, we will do it at all costs, whether we can do it or we can’t do it, we will still do it. That does not promote quality education,” he added.
