President of Ghana: Don’t rely on World Bank on education funding choices

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has challenged African governments not to rely on the World Bank and other institutions to decide on the choices they have to make concerning policies and the funding of education on the continent. “We should not get into arguments with foreign agencies about our priorities. We must set our own priorities and we must accept that we must provide the funds to translate our plans into reality,” he said.
