Ghana’s education is not far from a scam- Cheddar

Independent Presidential Candidate, Nana Kwame Bediako popularly known as ‘Cheddar’ has labeled the educational structure of Ghana as valueless, contributing to the creation of more unemployed individuals in the country.

Cheddar speaking in an exclusive interview with Kwame Adinkrah, on Kumasi-based Pure FM questioned the value of a degree from a Ghanaian University asserting that the country’s educational system is tailored to western needs and dependency on the western world, creating persons of little or no value.

He equated the educational system to a scam.

“Ghanaians are taught in schools the foreign ways of life and not local ways and local manufacturing and production strategies. There is no value in our education and we keep devaluing ourselves.

Throughout our educational structure, our heroes are seen as Christopher Columbus, Marcus Garvey and the likes. We are not taught to see our locals as our heroes.

From the onset, we devalue ourselves.”

“We have over 7,200 graduates from our various Universities every year with only 10% having access to jobs that come with protocol tags. The real question is, what becomes of the 90% who lack access to these opportunities because they do not have or know anyone in positions of influence?

This is why I’ve created the University challenge, educating students on how to create wealth and sowing a seed capital of GHC1M in the University to change the narrative of our education.” Cheddar noted.
