General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has said he would resign and forfeit his position if former president John Dramani Mahama, ever said he would cancel Free SHS, when he assumes office.
Denying that the former president made those comments, he dared the NPP government to provide evidence to prove that Mahama truly had plans of scrapping the policy.
Speaking on PM Express on JoyNews, Asiedu Nketia noted that the current Akufo-Addo-led government is propagating lies to deter Ghanaians from voting Mahama into power come 2020 general elections.
“If President Akufo-Addo or any other Ghanaian can produce a recording; either pictorial or vocal recording of President Mahama saying that he will cancel Free SHS when he comes to power and we test it as a genuine recording coming from the mouth of President Mahama, within 24 hours I’ll resign as the General Secretary of NDC. I’ve challenged them, let them bring it,” he said
He, however, revealed that the Free SHS programme has been met with a lot of challenges and will only take a competent team to bring the crisis to an end.
He therefore added that the NDC would review the policy when it comes to power just like former president Mahama said.
