The National Chairman for National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), Prof. Kwame Osei Kwarteng has refuted claims that the council deliberately wanted to change the long-existing history of Ghana, saying those claims are unnecessarily partisan politics.

Speaking on ‘DayBreak Upper East’ programme on A1 Radio, he said “How can anybody change the history of Ghana? That’s palpable falsehood and anybody who says so is trying to be mischievous and that person doesn’t know what he is talking about. He is only doing politics. You can’t do politics with curriculum and succeed.”

It could be recalled that, on Monday March 14, 2021, Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Abkakwa filed an argument questions in Parliament for the Education Minister, Yaw Osei Adutwum to answer relating to newly authored history textbooks titled ‘History of Ghana’.

According to him, the book contains ‘bigoted publications’, targeted to denigrate the Ewe ethnic group.

Portions of the ‘controversial publication’ have since been circulating on social media though the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has disassociated itself from such material and has subsequently recalled the materials from the Ghanaian Market

However, Kwame Osei urged the public to be circumspect in making political commentary about the situation at hand because it’s not the council’s deliberate attempt to cause any division in the country.
