A presidential staffer, Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe is advocating for punishments to be meted out to publishers of the controversial primary three textbook that has distasteful tribal comments about the Ewes in it.
According to him, the publishers of the book, Badu Nkansah and Nelly Martinson Anim must be made to withdraw all the books from bookshops and render an official apology to the people of the Volta Region in order to calm nerves.
“Withdraw the books, sanction the publisher, apologize to the good people of Volta Region and let’s move on as a country,” Tagoe wrote on his facebook wall.
Days ago, the controversial book was uncovered after popular rapper Edem, who hails from the Volta Region, shared a snapshot of it on social media.
The publishers of the book has since condemned with some persons threatening to burn the books whenever they see them in any bookshops across the country.
Meanwhile, the Education Minister, Dr. Yaw Adutsum is likely to be hauled before parliament to answers some questions filed by Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa, in relation to the controversial bigoted textbook.
