Prof Kwesi Yankah, the Minister of State in-charge of Tertiary education, has offered a reward for information that helps find the missing bag of the National Science and Maths Quiz mistress, Dr. Elsie Effah Kaufman.

Her bag was stolen on Thursday during the trophy presentation to the winners of the quiz, Prempeh College.

On Saturday, a sister to the quiz mistress, Belinda Yaa Dankwaa Effah, posted on Facebook that a purse that was among other valuables in the handbag has been recovered.

The bag contained her valuables including her phone, workplace ID cards, her car and home keys.

It is unclear if closed circuit television footage of the stage is available to help track the thief/thieves.

Speaking on Saturday at the 10th Congregation of the St Francis College of Education in Hohoe in the Volta Region, Prof. Yankah said: “Good education, indeed academic brilliance is meaningless if it is not founded on good discipline and sound moral integrity.

"Whoever stole the handbag, with all its precious content should be ashamed; he may have enjoyed himself/herself with its cash content but only temporarily.

"He has devalued and disgraced his school, his college and undermined the dignity of education in senior high school.

“And I use this medium to urge any student or anybody who knows the whereabouts of the missing handbag, to please report this to Ministry of Education for a handsome reward.”
