The New Patriotic Party says it plans to build 350 new senior high schools across the country to address the infrastructure deficit in the country’s educational sector.

The party has come under heavy criticisms over its free SHS policy especially from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) who say the few senior high schools available cannot accommodate the thousands of junior high schools students expected to enter the SHS.

They also argue the policy will compromise quality education if nothing is done about increasing accessibility.

But addressing supporters of the NPP in Kperisi in the Wa Central constituency of the Upper West region, the party’s presidential running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia promised that adequate infrastructure will be put in place to address the challenge.

“Under Nana Akufo-Addo we are going to build 350 new senior secondary schools in Ghana, and so we will create the access and we will improve the quality. The argument that you cannot do it is the same argument they used, then we were bringing in the National Health Insurance Scheme...we will bring about the free secondary school education for all our children.”

Dr. Bawumia also indicated that agriculture in the Northern and the two Upper regions will receive a major boost under the NPP to make the region the food basket of West Africa.
