NPP’s free SHS policy cannot be realized now - Ashanti NDC Chairman

 

Asiwa (Ash), Sept. 26, GNA – The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Yaw Owusu Obimpeh, has called for the improvement of the existing educational infrastructure to increase its intake.

      He said the promise of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) of providing free Senior High School (SHS) education could not be realised with the current situation saying “the time for that is not now”.
      He said the focus should rather be on promoting access by improving on the education infrastructure and opening of more SHS.
      Mr Obimpeh said this when speaking at the launch of the ruling party’s campaign in the Bosome-Freho Constituency at Asiwa.
      He said poor infrastructure and the lack of logistics which had resulted in the levying of PTA dues were needed to be tackled first adding that “what the NDC has been doing within the last four years was putting up classroom blocks, providing computers, extending electricity, the supply of free exercise books and uniforms.”
     He underlined the determination of their party to ensure the establishment of a solid school infrastructure and create the right conditions for quality teaching and learning and with this the free SHS, could then follow.
     Mr Obimpeh appealed to voters in the area to renew the mandate of the NDC in the upcoming general elections to continue with the “Better Ghana Agenda”.
     He said he was confident that the people would reward the government with their votes for the massive infrastructure development undertaken in the area and the party’s supporters to step up their house-to-house campaign to win over more voters.
