Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu is predicting that Ghana’s educational sector is on the verge of collapsing.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Mr. Iddrisu noted that, “I see chaos within the educational sector”.

“The Ministry has been working with the National Information Technology Agency (NITA) to resolve this challenge and wishes to assure the general public of immediate full access.In view of the challenges experienced, the deadline for accessing the internet to complete the placement process has been extended to midnight on Thursday, 7th September 2017”.
