Asiedu Nketia who happens to be the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has revealed that his son once benefited from the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) scholarship scheme.
He was asked whether his son qualified to be classified as ‘brilliant’ but-needy’, Mr. Nketia responded in the affirmative, saying at the time, he had retired from Parliament for many years and couldn’t foot his son’s tuition fees and related expenses.
General Mosquito who was speaking on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem morning show said his son qualified to be in the ‘needy’ category because of his retirement days.
“When I left Parliament some years back and had retired, I applied for a scholarship for my son from GETFund. My son was awarded the scholarship to study Risk Management outside the country because institutions of higher learning in Ghana were not offering that course,” he said.
“But my son is now done studying and has secured another scholarship by the Chinese government and is currently in China reading his PhD,” he added.
