The Ashanti Regional Writers and Publishers Association (ASHWAPA) has rejected vehemently the new submission guidelines by the National Council for Curriculum Assessment NaCCA which calls on the writers to submit their books for assessment before putting them on market.
The Ashanti Region Writers And Publishers Association (ASHWAPA) is informing the general public that the move by NaCCA is a clear attempt to get them out of business for them to get contracts for their cronies.
According to them the new submission guidelines by NaCCA states that all private writers are to submit their final products to the board for approval before they will be allowed to sell to the various schools in the country.
They added that timing for the submission of guidelines by NaCCA is in bad taste because of the short period they have to send the books for assessment and approval.
Therefore they are appealing to the National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA), Ministry of Education and the Government to consider them only this year because they have invested millions of cedis and this may affect their business.
