Minister of Education, Science and Sports and Member of Parliament (MP) for Sekondi, Papa Owusu-Ankomah, has denied media reports to the effect that he plans to resign his official duties as a minister.
“These reports are unequivocally false. I have made no such plans, nor have l announced them to any person in the media,” Papa Owusu-Ankomah stated in a press release signed by him and issued in Accra.
The release stressed further that continued speculation along those lines was a mark of disrespect to President J. A. Kufuor, to whom he would first communicate any such news.
In addition, it was injurious to the ongoing mission he had undertaken to carry out the President's very important agenda within the ministry he headed.
“I respectfully ask all persons in the media who wish to comment on my future to kindly contact me personally in order to get the story right,” it concluded.
