Mahama’s Statement To Continue Free SHS ‘Deceptive’ – Nana B

Published

on


National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye also known as Nana B has insisted former president John Mahama will cancel the free senior high school policy should Ghanaians give him chance to be president again.

According to Nana B, Mr Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have consistently registered their displeasure and disagreements with the free shs and nothing can convince him they won’t cancel it when they win power.

This comes after John Mahama on a courtesy call on the Overlord of Dagbon, Ya Na Abukari II stated that the next NDC government will maintain the free shs and not cancel it as thought. He urged Ghanaians to call anybody who claim he’ll cancel the free shs liar.

If anybody tells you that I, John Dramani Mahama , will abolish Free SHS when I come into power tell the person he is a bloody liar.”

In reaction, Nana B in a statement said “the seeming endorsement given to Free SHS policy by Mr Mahama is driven by ill-faith, deception and opportunism borne out of Mr Mahama and the NDC’s innate tendencies to subtly associate themselves with goods things to benefit unduly from same.”

“If Mr Mahama couldn’t pay trainees’ allowances in that he had to insensitively cancel it, where would he get over GHS2 billion to fund free SHS?” Nana B quizzed.

He added, “It’s even pathetic that Mr Mahama failed to make a pesewa available to pay for his shambolic progressively free education and E-Blocks. It took President Akufo-Addo to pay for the gargantuan debt inherited in the education sector encompassing progressively free SHS, E-Blocks, supply of vehicles, chalks, textbooks among others.”

Read the full statement below:

JOHN MAHAMA DOES NOT BELIEVE IN FREE SHS; HE WILL COLLAPSE THE FREE SHS POLICY WHEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY

Reference to Mr. John Dramani Mahama’s dishonest and opportunistic disposition relative to the implementation of the Free SHS Policy, the National Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) wishes to bring clarity to the matter, lay the facts bare, and expose the mischief and contempt therein.

It would be recalled that on Saturday, 8th August 2020, Mr. Mahama paid a courtesy call on the Overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abukari II, during which he (Mr Mahama) made a deceptive statement that “Free Senior High School education has come to stay. He stated “If anybody tells you that I, John Dramani Mahama, will abolish Free SHS when I come into power tell the person he is a bloody liar”.

The Youth of the NPP finds this statement very deceptive and we wish to respond as follows:

1. That the general belief among Ghanaians that Mr Mahama will scrap the Free SHS Policy in the extreme unlikely event that he becomes President again is NOT the creation of any individual or group of persons but the explicit engineering of Mr Mahama himself as evident in his actions and utterances from 2008 to yesterday as stated forthwith.

2. That it is on record that Mr Mahama and the NDC in 2012 sponsored over 46 radio and television adverts against the Free SHS policy.

3. That Mr Mahama on November 23, 2012, told the people of Okere in the Eastern Region that “Free SHS will collapse the education system of Ghana”.

4. That Mr Mahama on October 1, 2018, reiterated his aversion to Free SHS, stating that it is unthinkable to spend 2 billion Ghana cedis on free SHS and that it is seriously constricting government’s budget and therefore when he becomes President, it will undergo a review.

5. That Mr Mahama on November 25, 2017, stated that “Lalasulala Free SHS will fail”.

6. That Mr Mahama at the NDC’s Tarkwa unity walk strongly rejected the Free SHS policy stating that It is unwise to implement it.

7. That Mahama on his presidential primaries tour said to Akufo-Addo ”Free SHS is not working”

It is important to note that the stern opposition to the Free SHS policy witnessed over a decade is deep-rooted in the NDC. Every single member of the NDC including high ranking leaders have, over time, opposed and worked against the implementation of the Free SHS Policy as catalogued below:

1. On October 16. 2018, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang said free SHS is not working and that Ghanaians are complaining.

2. The General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah is on record to have said on October 1, 2018, that Free SHS is shambolic and that it will have to be scrapped.

3. The National Chairman of the NDC, Elder Ofosu Ampofo also on 18th December 2018 said: “free SHS is bogus because double Track system is causing teenage pregnancy”.

4. The then Minister of Education, Lee Ocran, on 10th September 2012 said ”Free SHS can only be possible in 2032, in 20 years time”.

5. NDC MP for Adaklu, Kwame Agbodza, on June 19, 2018, said ”Over concentration on Free SHS stifling funds meant for other sectors of the economy”.

6. Felix Kwakye Ofosu on May 14, 2018, had this warning for the government ”You can’t use oil money to fund Free SHS”

8. Mahama Ayariga, on September 26, 2016, said ”Choose Mahama’s education policy, it is better than Akufo-Addo’s Free SHS.

The seeming endorsement given to Free SHS policy by Mr. Mahama is driven by ill-faith, deception and opportunism borne out of Mr. Mahama and the NDC’s innate tendencies to subtly associate themselves with goods things to benefit unduly from same.

If Mr Mahama couldn’t pay Trainees’ allowances in that he had to insensitively cancel it, where would he get over Ghc2 billion to fund free SHS? Ghanaians should consider Mr Mahama’s statement as comic relief because he (Mahama) couldn’t find few millions of cedis to reimburse three (3) consecutive terms’ Feeding Grants to keep Second Cycle Institutions in the northern part of Ghana opened.

It’s even pathetic that Mr Mahama failed to make a pesewa available to pay for his shambolic Progressively Free Education and E-Blocks. It took President Akufo-Addo to pay for the gargantuan debt inherited in the Education sector encompassing Progressively Free SHS, E-Blocks, Supply of Vehicles, Chalks, Textbooks among others.

It is instructive to note that the Nana Addo led NPP Government do not need the incompetent and insensitive Mahama to remind us that Free SHS is working and has come to stay.

The massive endorsement from Religious leaders, Traditional leaders and the testimonies about the Free SHS policy from parents and well-meaning Ghanaians coupled with the dozens of successfully implemented economic and social policies provide enough grounds for Ghanaians to vote for the NPP to prevent the NDC from destroying these transformative and progressive policies in future.

The young people in Ghana are grateful to the President, HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his visionary leadership that has seen over 1.2 million Ghanaians access second cycle education free of charge.

Thank you.

…Signed…

Henry Nana Boakye (Esq)

Be Serious And Advise Your Boss To Debate Mahama – Apaak To Bawumia

Published

on


Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has told Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to get serious and quit spewing lies.

He was reacting to Dr Bawumia’s reply to John Dramani Mahama regarding what the government have used borrowed monies for.

In his write up, the Vice President noted that the Akufo-Addo led government is investing in infrastructure and not rearing flying Guinea fowls.

In response, Dr Apaak quizzed Bawumia on the number of school buildings government has built from scratch.

“Speaking of infrastructure, how many secondary schools has Akufo-Addo and his NPP government built from scratch? Didn’t Akufo-Addo promise to construct 350 secondary schools from scratch? How many Universities have been built? How many CHPS compounds and hospitals has the NPP built? How many ports have been expanded?,” Apaak wrote.

He added, “If Bawumia wants to talk infrastructure, he should convince his boss to accept the clarion call by Ghanaians to debate John Dramani Mahama on infrastructure.”
