Lady listed as beneficiary of £22,700 GETFund scholarship disputes claim

One of the 86 persons listed as beneficiaries of a Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) scholarship has denied receiving any such educational sponsorship.

Hajia Ramana Shareef is among persons listed by the Auditor-General to have received the scholarship from 2014 to 2018.

The former Metro TV journalist is listed as the 46th person to receive tuition — £12,600.00 — and living allowing – £ 10,130.00 – for her one year MSc. Communication for Innovation and Development course at the University of Reading, UK.

However, first reacting to her name being on the list on Facebook and subsequently on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, Hajia Shareef denied the claim.

She said she was never paid the monies for her tuition and stipend.

“I waited and waited for the fees to be paid for me to get the visa to leave but it was never paid,” she told host of the Super Morning Show, Daniel Dadzie.

She explained that due to the delay in releasing her tuition, she deferred her course for a year but GETFund still did not release the funds.

At a second attempt to defer her course, the university declined.

Unable to enrol for the course, she joined her husband in Germany in 2015 where she has since been domiciled.

“Where did the money go because I didn’t go to the UK, I currently live in Germany, for the past six years,” she said.

Meanwhile, the list also has the names of Education Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku-Prempeh, Procurement Minister and Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo, Employment and Labour Relations Minister, Ignatius Baffour-Awuah, and other government appointees.

Many Ghanaians have condemned the presence of the names of these government appointees on the list because many believe the scholarship is meant to support brilliant but needy students.
