Going to school won’t make you rich – Kennedy Agyapong

Kennedy Agyapong, a prominent member of the New Patriotic Party and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, has recently made a controversial statement suggesting that pursuing a lucrative trade or skill may be more beneficial than acquiring multiple degrees through formal education.

In a recent interview on his NET 2 TV station, the wealthy businessman and politician argued that the lack of billionaire professors in the world is evidence that simply obtaining academic qualifications may not necessarily lead to financial success.

Agyapong’s viewpoint is supported by the fact that many of the world’s richest individuals are school dropouts who have managed to achieve great success in their respective fields.

In Ghana, a significant number of graduates are struggling to find employment, as they lack the necessary skills to start their businesses and thrive independently.

This highlights the importance of vocational and technical education, which can equip individuals with practical skills that are in demand in the job market.

It is essential for Ghanaians to shift their focus towards vocational and technical education in order to address the high unemployment rates in the country.

By providing individuals with the necessary skills and training to succeed in various trades and professions, Ghana can work towards reducing unemployment and fostering economic growth in the long run.
