President Nana Akufo-Addo has revealed that he spends over forty billion on education as compared to former president Mahama who spent only GH¢20.7 billion in the same sector during his tenure.

The President made the above comparison while addressing members of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) at their 6th Quadrennial National Delegates Conference.

“So, great has this government’s commitment to education been that public expenditure on education has almost doubled from twenty billion, seven hundred million cedis (GH¢20.7 billion) between 2013 and 2016, that is in the Mahama era, to forty billion, four hundred million cedis (GH¢40.4 billion) between 2017 and 2020, that is in the Akufo-Addo era, representing an increase of some ninety-five percent (95%)”.

He has therefore assured that under his administration, the work undertaken by the membership and leadership of the Association will not be in vain.
