The ruling New Patriotic Party’s National Youth Organiser, Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known as Nana B has said former President and flag bearer for the direct opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramana Mahama will collapse the Free Senior High School policy implemented by Nana Addo if given the opportunity to lead the country again.
According to Nana B, the leader and flag bearer for the NDC, Mr Mahama’s claim to strengthen the free SHS policy if elected to become the president should not be countenanced because he will collapse it after being elected.
Henry Nana Boakye made this known in a statement issued on Sunday, August 9, of which he indicated that, “It would be recalled that on Saturday, 8th August Mr. Mahama paid a courtesy call on the Overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abukari II, during which he (Mr. Mahama) made a deceptive statement that ‘Free Senior High School education has come to stay. He stated ‘If anybody tells you that I, John Dramani Mahama, will abolish Free SHS when I come into power tell the person he is a bloody liar’.
This didn’t go down well with the Youth of the NPP according to Nana B as he claims they finds Mahama’s statement very deceptive and the NPP wish to respond that, the general belief among Ghanaians that Mr. Mahama will scrap the Free SHS Policy in the extreme unlikely event that he becomes President again is NOT the creation of any individual or group of persons but the explicit engineering of Mr. Mahama himself as evident in his actions and utterances from 2008 to yesterday as stated forthwith.
He however stated in his statement released that, Mr. Mahama and the NDC in 2012 sponsored over 46 radio and television adverts against the Free SHS policy so why now saying he will strengthen the policy.
Nana B urged Religious leaders, Traditional leaders, parents and well-meaning Ghanaians coupled to vote for the NPP to prevent the NDC from destroying these transformative and progressive policies in future.
And he concluded with “The young people in Ghana are grateful to the President, HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his visionary leadership that has seen over 1.2 million Ghanaians access second cycle education free of charge.”
