The direct opposition party founded by the late and first President Of The Fourth Republic Of Ghana, His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings now led by former President John Dramani Mahama, The National Democratic Congress(NDC) has amends portions of their 2020 manifesto to absorb full school fees of tertiary students.
According to the NDC, their next government is to introduce an new policy dubbed the “FA NINYINAA’ policy for Ghanaian students who will be admitted to tertiary institution next year.
The policy is to absorb full school fees of tertiary students who will be admitted next year just like the ongoing free Senior High School policy implemented by the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP).
This new policy according to the NDC is to enhance their commitment in the people’s manifesto to absorb 50% of the School fees of all tertiary students for the 2020/2021 academic year through the “KYEMUPE” policy, which will now apply to only continuing students in the tertiary institutions in the country.
