- The MP says God will curse anyone trying to sabotage the policy
-He says GES must sack all heads of schools found guilty of extortion
The New Patriotic Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has disclosed that Ghanaians will not forgive any head of Senior High School who works to undermine the Free SHS policy.
According to him, God will curse and ruthlessly deal with headmasters and mistresses who make deliberate efforts to hinder the smooth implementations of the policy.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Adom FM, the Assin lawmaker insisted that the government doesn’t need to offer any special incentive package to head of schools in other for them to discharge their duties.
The MP argues that all heads of schools are being paid like any other civil servants, therefore lack of motivation should not force any teacher to sabotage the free policy.
“Nana Addo has done very well for our country by implementing the free SHS. But my only plea to government and the education ministry is to keep on sacking all head teachers who are bent on sabotaging the free SHS”, he stressed.
The outspoken politician added that Ghana Education Service must monitor all heads of schools closely and apply maximum sanctions if any of them are found sabotaging the policy.
He also lauded the Ministry of Education for interdicting nine head teachers and dismissing two others for flouting the Free SHS implementation guidelines.
“The Free SHS policy would bring great blessing to the country but saboteurs will be cursed by God. “You decided to be a teacher or even a head teacher and you are being paid and so no teacher has the right to extort monies from students”, he said.
Kennedy Agyapong also praised President Akufo-Addo for the honoring his promise to Ghanaians and urged parents to encourage the children to study hard.
“Parents are not relieved because government is making education free students in the country. But my advice to all parents is not to waste that money but rather save them cater for their university education,” he said.
