My Free Secondary education promise won’t be a mirage-Akufo Addo


My Free Secondary education promise won’t be a mirage-Akufo Addo

Nana Akuffo-AddoNana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has assured Ghanaians that his campaign promise of free secondary education would not be a mirage when given the nod in December this year.

“I want to assure the youth of this country and for that matter the entire Ghanaian population that my free secondary education promise will not be an empty promise as the elements of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are trying to portray,” he emphasized.

He has therefore appealed to Ghanaians to vote for him come December 7, to be able to implement it and bring smiles on the faces of Ghanaians who could not afford secondary education for their wards.

Nana Akufo Addo gave the assurance when he addressed a large crowd of students from Koforidua at the swearing in ceremony of All Nations University branch of Tertiary Student Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP, on Friday as part of his campaign tour of the Eastern Region.

The NPP presidential candidate began his campaign tour of the region on Tuesday and has so far visited Oda, Swedru and Ofoase Ayirebi constituencies.

The free secondary education promise by the NPP presidential candidate had been criticized by the ruling NDC as an impossibility now because the second cycle schools in the country seriously lack class room infrastructure and if implemented, only a small proportion of the population would benefit.

Nana Akufo Addo said Ghanaian voters should ignore people who doubt the feasibility of the free secondary education policy.

He said the governing party lacked the moral right to raise issues of infrastructure to justify their argument and that when the policy takes off in 2013, it would include the provision of needed infrastructure.

Nana Akufo Addo said his government would also ensure that quality education was provided to produce the necessary human capital for economic growth.

According to Nana Akufo Addo, it was necessary for every Ghanaian child to have access to free education and therefore assured that when voted into power come December 07, he would fulfill his promise to provide free senior high school education to all Ghanaian children.

He therefore called on Ghanaians not to pay attention to statements coming from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) that he was only bragging and that the provision of free secondary education to Ghanaians was not achievable in this present time.

“I want to assure you that now is the time for free secondary education because Ghanaians cannot wait for the NDC’s twenty years before enjoying free secondary education,” he said.

Nana Akufo Addo is being accompanied on the tour by Mr Lord Commey, Director of Operations for the campaign team, Mr Dan Botwe Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere, Mr Abu Jinapor, member of the campaign team, Mr Yaw Osafo Maafo, former MP for Akyem Oda, Mr Felix Owusu Agyepong, former MP for Akyem Swedru, National Women Organizer, Madam Otiko Ogyaba, some MPs and all regional executive members of the party.

He later introduced the parliamentary candidates for the New Juaben North and South, Nana Kwasi Agyei Boateng and Dr Mark Assibey Yeboah, respectively.
