Education Minister Dr Mathew Opoku-Prempeh popularly known as ‘Napo’ has denied reports that he is a beneficiary of GETFund scholarship.

News reports named Dr Opoku-Prempeh among some politicians who allegedly received funding for their studies abroad.

Dr Opoku-Prempeh is listed to have received US$11,200 to study National and International Security at Harvard University and US$12,800 as tuition and living allowance.

But in a Facebook post, the Education Minister said the statement is false and calculated to cause him embarrassment and public ridicule.

“I have noted with dismay a news carried by some media, that suggests that I have as a Minister, received a scholarship from the Ghana Education Trust Fund for studies at Harvard.

“This impression is false and calculated to cause embarrassment and public ridicule. I have not received any form of sponsorship for any programme or course of study from GETFund of scholarship secretariat since becoming a Minister,” his post read.
