- Seasoned journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has sent a word of caution to Former President John Mahama concerning the double-track system
- He said that any attempt by Mahama to review the policy when he becomes president in 2020 will result in chaos
Popular Ghanaian journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has cautioned Former President Mahama against reviewing the double-track policy behind the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme.
According to him, it will be suicidal for Mahama to touch the policy if he becomes Ghana’s president in 2020, because there will be total “disorder under the heavens.”
Speaking on Peace FM’s morning programme, Kokrokoo, he explained that there will be total chaos in Ghana’s educational system.
His comments follow remarks by Mahama while campaigning in Central Regional’s capital, Cape Coast.
Mahama is reported to have stated that the Akufo-Addo-led government’s Free SHS policy is ill-timed.
"Our NPP friends, they don't listen to advice, they think they know everything . . . We just finished vacation. Children have been at home for nearly three months.
It is time to go to school you say they have to stay at home for nearly 41 days and let your friends go. After 41 days, they will come home and sit down; it doesn’t make sense,” Mahama said, adding that when elected president for a second time, he would hold a national stakeholders conference where he would panel educationists to revise the policy.
