“Government is focused on developing education in Ghana to attain the world’s standard and as part of this; we are working on building eight science and creative arts oriented schools in Ghana,” he stated.

“There will be an inauguration of the committee in-charge of the Creative Arts schools on Thursday with MUSIGA and the Creative Arts Ministry on board. These schools will be fully furnished and students will be auditioned to gain admission into these schools,” he added.
