Popular National Democratic Congress (NDC) serial caller, Osei Yaw Nketia aka Dr. Asemfofro, has launched a scathing attack on his party for condemning Nana Akufo-Addo’s plans to make Senior High School (SHS) education free when voted into power.

According to Asemfofro, Nana Addo’s vision to make SHS education free was a step in the right direction and must not be condemned by anybody or political party in the country.

Many NDC gurus have condemned Nana Addo’ free SHS policy, saying the problem with Ghana’s education system is not affordability but accessibility.

Nana Akufo-Addo, the NPP presidential candidate, says he will make SHS education free if he becomes the next president of Ghana.

In an interview with Daily Guide, Asemfofro asked members of the NDC to bow their heads in shame for condemning the free SHS policy, adding that “any political party that does not support free SHS education must not be given the chance to rule the country.

He said policy would enable children, whose parents are poor, to access education and prepare for leadership positions in future.

Explaining further, the NDC serial caller said he would have held a position in government if his parents had sent him to secondary school.

“Anybody who says free SHS in not good should be seen as an enemy of the state, if such a person could be banished I would support the move.”

Dr. Asemfofro, a staunch NDC supporter, said Nana Addo’s ability to put out specific figures to finance the programme during his Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) encounter showed that he could actually implement the policy.

He said the NDC heavily criticized former President Kufuor for promising to make NHIS free in 2000.

“President Kufuor was able to do it when he came to power, what shows that Nana Addo cannot implement the free SHS education promise if voted into power.”

The NDC might not like Nana Addo but his policies and visions are good and must not be condemned by anybody.

He said he asked former President Mills during a telephone conversation to steal Addo’s free SHS education idea and implement it.

He said the late Prof. Mills told him that he had already considered the policy and informed his cabinet ministers about it.

“Because I did not go to school former President Mills told me he could not help me and I understood him perfectly.”

“If the free education was available in my time, I would have had the opportunity to go to school and by now I would have been in a better position and be serving in the NDC government,” he said.

Dr. Asemfofro urged politicians to stop condemning the good policies of other politicians.
