Minister speaks against protocol admission of students

Alhaji Collins Dauda

Alhaji Collins Dauda, Minister of Transport, has noted that the tendency by some people to seek the assistance of politicians for “protocol” admissions into second-cycle and tertiary institutions is worrying.

He said it was a bother when the students on whose behalf their parents or guardians were acting obtained poor grades.

Admissions to second and third cycle institutions are done on merit, based on required passes in all subjects including Mathematics, English Language and Science, he said.

Alhaji Dauda was speaking on behalf of the Vice President, Mr John Dramani Mahama at a durbar to climax the bi-annual Apomaso festival of the chiefs and people of Ntotroso Traditional Area in Asutifi District of the Brong Ahafo Region, on the theme: “Promoting and Sustaining Quality Health through Chieftaincy.”

He entreated farmers to place premium on the education of their children, adding that it is only through their support that their offspring would be able to obtain professional qualifications to secure lucrative jobs to become responsible and useful citizens.
