The Deputy Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has hinted of government’s intention to borrow against their own promise during the 2016 campaign to complete all educational sector infrastructure projects at 70% of completion.
He made this revelation in an engagement with youth as a speaker on what governments efforts are towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals 4 that touched on quality education last week.
“As I speak with you, GETFUND has estimated that within the next 10 years or so they will be able to get revenue about 3 billion dollars. Now cabinet has approved and we would bring to parliament that we want to take 1.5billion dollars that is 50% of the projected revenue and dedicate 500million dollars to completing all GETFUND projects at 70% of completion”.
He continued “complete all the E-Blocks that are at advanced stages, complete university facilities with another 500million dollars”.
Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum is optimistic the amount borrowed will alleviate the infrastructure deficit in the education sector.
