ELECTION 2020: NPP/NDC UK Chapters Lock Horns Over Free SHS, Teacher Trainee Allowances
The December 2020 elections is drawing closer by the day. As Ghanaians prepare to choose between the incumbent, New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the John Dramani Mahama led National Democratic Congress (NDC), key issues like the cancellation of teacher trainee allowances, free SHS and infrastructure will play a critical role in these decisive moments.
When, Kwakye Afreh-Nuamah engaged leadership of the NPP and the NDC-UK, on the second episode of ‘From The Diaspora’, asking both sides, “Which Party deserves a chance?”, they touted their unmatched achievements and gave reasons why Ghanaians are rooting form them.
Simon Aworigo, Communication Officer for NDC UK and Ireland Chapter, held his hopes high as the party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama went for a female to be his running mate. ‘The choice of a woman is the best…Ghanaians are looking forward to a leader who can change our situation. I don’t know what sector of the economy is actually running now.’
But, Isaac Banie, Chairman of the NPP Reading Chapter and Member of the NPP UK Communication team, was of the view, Ghanaians have already “given their verdict” on John Mahama and his choice of Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as a running mate is not going to make any difference.
“Prof. Naana Jane herself could not advocate for women when they cancelled teachers allowance,” he added.
