 Mahama Ayariga, Deputy Minister for EducationNPP's Free SHS Is Impossible - Mahama Ayariga

24 October 2012

Mr. Mahama Ayariga, Deputy Minister for Education, at the weekend debunked the promise of New Patriotic Party (NPP) to make Senior High School education free, and said “it would be a fiction”.

He said it would be impossible to make education free at that level because “the country is young in terms of resources to operate such a system.’’

Mr. Ayariga said: the Upper West, Northern and Upper East Regions alone has a student population of four million, yet government had not been able to give them adequate attention for the past twenty years'', and asked: " how much more adding the remaining seven regions’’.

The Deputy Minister said these during a tour of educational institutions, including Bawku Senior High School (SHS), Bawku Technical Institute, and Bawku Senior High Technical, to inspect completed and ongoing projects, and to interact with students to get first hand information about their performance.

Interacting with students at Bawku SHS, Mr. Ayariga said the country needed quality education instead of the creation of a system that would jeopardize the future of the country.

He lamented that what would be the country’s faith if it should operate an unsustainable free educational system.

Mr. Ayariga, who is also National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Bawku Central, said the NDC government would build 200 more community secondary schools to provide affordable and quality education. He said that government would extend electricity to every community to enhance teaching and learning.

Mr. Ayariga appealed to the students to vote massively for the NDC to retain it power for development for their schools and communities. Mr. Bismark-Simon Kpuli, headmaster for Bawku SHS, commended government for providing school infrastructure to promote education.

He said the school had over the years performed well in the West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination and sports. Mr. Kpuli asked the students take their studies seriously to be able to pass their examination and acquire knowledge and skill for national development.
