Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said the opposition National Democratic Congress’ insistence on reviewing the Free Senior High School policy do not make sense to him.
“They say they will review it and it doesn’t make sense to me”, Dr Bawumia told Kwami Sefa Kayi on Accra-based Peace FM’s morning show, Kokrokoo on Tuesday, 25 August 2020.
“They can’t handle it but they will say anything that they need to say just to win an election”, Dr Bawumia noted.
In his view, the NDC cannot be trusted with the Free SHS considering their past opposition to the policy.
“The credibility and sincerity of the NDC with free SHS cannot be trusted,” Dr Bawumia said.
“They didn’t believe in it in the first place but we have successfully implemented it. Now, they keep giving different versions of what they want to do”, the Vice President added.
PROTECTING GAINS MADE
Dr Bawumia said the NDC, having performed abysmally in all sectors, and led to their exit from office in 2016, cannot be trusted.
He said the country will retrogress and all the positive gains made by the Akufo-Addo government in critical sectors such as education, economy, agriculture, industrialisation, etc. will be eroded.
“If you look at what we have done, we have achieved so much in education, agriculture, infrastructure, industrialisation, etc., in just three and half years.”
