Nana Akufo Addo's Free Education Policy....Prez Mahama's Picture Going Round...

WHILE SOME kingpins of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been openly criticizing Nana Akufo-Addo’s free education policy, the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Western Regional First Vice Chairman, Kwesi Biney has told Daily Guide some NDC activists are going round with President John Mahama’s picture telling people that the NDC flag bearer is the one promising Ghanaians free education.

“Having realized that Nana Akufo-Addo’s free education policy is being accepted by rural dwellers, some NDC activists are moving from house-to-house in some rural communities in the Western region with the photograph of President Mahama, telling the electorate the president is the one promising the people free education,” Mr. Biney said.

He made the revelation to the paper in an interview, cautioning Ghanaians particularly those in the remote areas to be wary of the deceit of NDC activists who were claiming the education policy was theirs. “The irony of it is that while some activists of the ruling party are secretly moving from house-to-house with Mahama’s picture claiming the NDC will implement free education, the party’s bigwigs are sitting in their big cities openly criticizing the policy saying it can only be implemented after 20 years,” Mr. Biney noted.

He entreated the electorate to reject the NDC outright in the December 7 general elections so that the ruling party could not even think about rigging.

He noted that for close to four years, the NDC government had not been able to find solutions to the constant shortage of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the country.

Mr. Biney said it was pathetic that because of the gas shortage, mothers carrying their babies on their backs had to carry gas cylinders on their heads in the scorching sun in search of the product which was not available at gas filling stations.

“This gas shortage problem has deepened in that not only has it adversely affected domestic use, it has contributed to the current national power crisis which has resulted in the ongoing load shedding exercise nationwide.”

Kwesi Biney explained that the power crisis experienced under the previous NPP regime was due to a long period of drought which affected the level of water in the Volta River. “During that time members of the NDC spoke as if they were the alpha and omega of energy. Now where are the Ato Ahwois, because we can’t get simple energy in our homes?”

The former Ahanta West DCE opined that the NDC was only interested in making propaganda about projects that could only be identified by people in a particular area such as their so-called removal of schools under trees project.

“The NDC continues to give conflicting figures on the number of schools under trees they have removed. Some activists of the party say 1,000; the late President Mills said 1,200. On his recent visit to the region, Vice President Amissah-Arthur said about 4,000 schools under trees have been removed,” Biney noted.

He therefore challenged the NDC to publish the actual number of schools under trees they had removed, where they were situated and the cost involved.
