The eighth (8th) Parliament of Ghana under the speakership of Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin is expected to summon the Education Minister Hon. Yaw Osei Adutwum to appear before the House to answer questions on bigoted textbooks against Ewes ethnic groups.

This came after the Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has filed an urgent parliamentary question requesting the Minister for Education to appear before the House and respond to the two bigoted publications in issue.
