President Nana Akufo-Addo says his government is considering coming out with a new policy aimed at mitigating the plight of Ghanaian students studying abroad.
The President says the constant complaints from Ghanaian students studying outside must be addressed to enable them perform their best without any distractions.
Speaking at a meeting with Ghanaian students studying in Guyana, Nana Akufo-Addo promised that the government will pay attention to issues that hinder their quest to acquire knowledge in various fields of importance to the nation.
“Our duty is to see to what extent we can expedite discussions on the matter… It has implications for the budget, it has implications for the Ministry of Education but I have taken note of it and we will see how we will address it,” Akufo-Addo said.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has received Guyana’s highest national award at a State Luncheon held in his honour on Tuesday, June 11, in Georgetown, Guyana.
Established in 1970 under the Constitution of the Orders of Guyana, the Order of Excellence of Guyana is limited to only 25 living citizens of Guyana.
Reading the citation after the conferment of the honour, the President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, His Excellency David Arthur Granger, stated that his country was pleased to honour President Akufo-Addo “for his dedication and commitment to the Commonwealth, the African Union, ECOWAS, and for his unflinching support for the rights of developing states.”
