The Deputy National Youth Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Osman Abdulai Ayariga, has advocated for significant reforms in the administration of scholarships in Ghana.

According to him, decentralizing the Scholarship Secretariat will grant each region the authority to allocate scholarships to deserving yet financially disadvantaged students.

He said the move would mitigate corrupt practices within the current centralized system.

The organizer’s proposal comes in the wake of heightened scrutiny following recent investigative reports by the Fourth Estate regarding the scholarship allocation process.

Speaking on A1 Radio, Mr. Ayariga underscored the importance of addressing systemic flaws within the Scholarship Secretariat.

He expressed concern over potential irregularities in the awarding of scholarships and emphasized the need for swift action to restore public trust in the process. To this end, he has formally petitioned the Office of the Special Prosecutor to launch an investigation into the Secretariat’s operations.

He also called for the Registrar of the Scholarship Secretariat to be subjected to investigation and urged for their temporary removal from office pending the outcome of the inquiry.
