The Deputy Education Minister, John Ntim Fordjour, has sternly condemned Excellence Publications for publishing a textbook that vilifies content on Christianity.
In a tweet on Thursday, Mr Fordjour who doubles as MP for Assin South described the content in the textbook titled ‘History of Ghana for Basic Schools’, as obnoxious and misconceived.
While condemning the book’s appalling nature, he criticized its presence in the market, where unsuspecting learners may encounter misleading material.
“I condemn entirely the rather obnoxious content found in a textbook published by ‘Excellence Publications’ and smuggled into the market for unsuspecting learners. The content is appalling and misconceived,” parts of his tweet read.
The Deputy Minister further commended the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) swift recall of the books on the market.
He further emphasised on the crucial role of religion in the country, thus, urging writers to deal with the topic cautiously.
“Ghana is most peaceful for a reason, and the important place of religion cannot be undermined,” he said.
