The president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo says the intentions of some elements in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to review the free Senior High School policy if voted in power means the gradual collapse of the policy.
According to Nana Akufo-Addo, Ghanaians must be alarmed of the proposal of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) and its presidential aspirant, John Manama for a review of the free SHS policy.
“I am alarmed by this concept of review. This is because, anytime our political opponents try anything of this sort, it leads the policy in question into comma. We all remember the NHIS one-term premium payment review pledge. Not only did the review not materialize, but they also succeeded in degrading the policy.” The president bemoaned.
Nana Akugo-Addo made this known on Friday, 28th September, 2018, when he addressed a town hall meeting of Ghanaians’ resident in Washington DC, as part of his trip to the United States of America for the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly.
