The Minister of Education Matthew Opoku Prempeh returned to a commitment of the country taken in Paris.

“We decided in France to sign an agreement with La Francophonie to improve technical support and capacity building for teaching and learning French in Ghana, promote teaching and learning French as a second official language. ”

He also explained the country’s reasons for choosing the French language.


“Ghana is surrounded by French-speaking countries and most ECOWAS countries have French as their official language. Based on this reality, the government has concluded that Ghana has an interest in continuing the teaching and learning of French to enable the country to better integrate into the West African subregion.

The President-in-Office should set an example since he has a good command of the French language. Nana Akufo-Addo encourages youth to take this new learning challenge as a stimulus for their own personal benefit.

Note that Ghana is surrounded by three countries, Togo, Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire. These three countries speak only the French language.
