Dr. Adutwum is a generational thinker according to Samson Lardy Anyenini. In his view, Dr. Adutwum proved himself worthy of the Education Minister’s position during the vetting.
The MP for Bosomtwe MP who is the education minister-nominee can be akin to a generational thinker, following the latter’s performance before the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
Samson Lardy Anyenini further argued that the education minister nominees background in education is a testament to what he has achieved as the former deputy minister of education.
“He has got a track record as a private individual in the United States establishing an education facility and managing it well,” Lardy Anyenini said in a discussion on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana on Thursday.
“He has a certain plan, you can tell he is a generational thinker. He is thinking that in this number of years, we are looking for this number of Engineers [students Adutwum is sponsoring to study Engineering] to come from my place. So he decides I’m going to invest in that. So, this year alone, he is sponsoring 30 students in Engineering. If he is consistent in that for about a certain number of years, he will not make a mistake, the results will come in due course,” Samson Lardy Anyenini noted.
According to education minister-nominee Anyenini, Dr. Adutwum exhibited deep knowledge in the education field and showed he was cut out for the job of the Minister of Education.
He added that “you don’t need to be in an area and have the expertise to be able to judge that you should be proud as a Ghanaian to have him as your minister for that particular portfolio”.
Teachers and stakeholders of education have been excited by the nomination of one of their own as the education minister and have expressed excitement in this regard. With the “Dr. Adutwum is a generational thinker” accolade, it is hoped that he will bring his background as an educationist and professional teacher to bear on the job.
