The Ministry of Education in Ghana has categorically denied claims of service delivery failures and misuse of public funds associated with the Wi-Fi for Schools Programme.

In a press release, the Ministry addressed allegations made in a report by The Fourth Estate Media, labelling the report as inaccurate and misleading.

According to the Ministry, the Government’s educational transformation agenda initiated in 2019 aimed to enhance internet connectivity across Senior High Schools, Colleges of Education, and educational offices nationwide.

The enhanced connectivity was expected to improve learning, administrative efficiency, and research capabilities significantly.

The Ministry’s statement noted that the Wi-Fi for Schools Programme was a key component of this transformation agenda, and that it had made significant progress in achieving its objectives.

The Ministry asserted that the programme had successfully improved internet connectivity in numerous educational institutions across the country, leading to enhanced learning outcomes and administrative efficiency.

The Ministry’s denial comes in response to a report by The Fourth Estate Media, which alleged that the programme had failed to deliver on its promises and that public funds had been misused.

The Ministry described the report as “inaccurate and misleading”, and assured that it was committed to transparency and accountability in the management of public funds.

The Ministry’s statement has put to rest concerns about the Wi-Fi for Schools Programme, and has reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to improving the quality of education in Ghana through innovative and effective programmes.
