- Joseph Yammin stated that president Akufo-Addo has refused all forms of advice with regard to the Free SHS programme
- He added that parents have been inconvenienced ever since the programme began
Joseph Yammin, formerly a deputy Ashanti regional minister has criticized president Akufo-Addo with regard to the Free SHS programme.
He stated that the president is repeating some mistakes committed by the Mahama-led former NDC administration.
He added that former president Mahama was labelled with the ‘Yentie Obiaa’ and the ‘Dead Goat’ tags as a result of his words and actions; therefore the present administration may suffer same if care isn’t taken.
Yammin went on to say that president Akufo-Addo has refused all forms of advice with regard to the Free SHS programme.
The Minority in parliament, he said, had raised some concerns about the policy, but all had fallen on deaf ears.
He again said that Ghanaians should rise up and condemn the president if need be.
This, he explained., is because some parents are experiencing difficulties as a result of the implementation of this policy.
Whilst interacting with a cross-section of Ghanaians in New York, president Akufo-Addo emphasized that the policy has come to stay.
