- Haruna Iddrisu is saying Akufo-Addo's Free SHS policy will crumble
- He says the NDC will not allow NPP to jeopardize the future of Ghanaian kids
The leader of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), members in parliament Haruna Iddrisu is saying the Free Senior High School policy introduced by President Akufo-Addo administration is a hoax.
According to the Minority Leader, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP), Free SHS policy which is being implemented this September could break down Ghana’s educational system.
Addressing hundreds of party supporters at the NDC’s maiden unity health walk in Tamale disclosed that the NPP administration is bound to fail in its much touted Free SHS policy.
The Tamale Central legislator insisted that his party will not allow president Akufo-Addo to jeopardize the future of Ghanaian children.
The MP therefore called on President Akufo-Addo and the NPP to rethink and fine-tune the entire concept and the implementation of the Free SHS policy.
“My message to President Nana Akufo Addo today is a simple but important one that when he goes to bed today he must rethink his free senior high school policy",
“It is manifested gargantuan failure and our concerns are that we will not sit down for him to jeopardize our youngsters and the future of our country,” Haruna Iddrisu told a mammoth crowd in Tamale.
He also insisted that President Akufo-Addo administration is in hurry to implement the policy without putting in place adequate financial plan to ensure the continuity of the entire policy.
The Minority Leader disclosed that “the idea of free senior high school is a noble social and political educational objective but the pursuit of it must be premised on adequate, reliable and sustainable financing and not experimental financing.”
He therefore served notice that the NDC minority caucus in Parliament will fiercely resist any attempts to implement the policy at all cost for political expediency.
