The vice presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang has said that her party will right the wrongs associated with the implementation of the free SHS programme.
Professor Naana Opoku-Agyemang made this known in an interview on Sharp FM on Monday, as she elaborated on her party’s 2020 manifesto during her tour of the Western Region.
Speaking on the subject of free SHS, Mr. Mahama’s running mate said the NDC has a strategic plan to efficiently make the policy better once the party is voted back into power after December 7.
She promised that the NDC will embark on a progressive implementation policy which will ensure that the programme is completely free.
“The current situation should tell Ghanaians that the NPP had no plans for Free SHS,” she said while adding that the NDC’s progressively free education is targeting the brilliant but needy pupil and poor families to eradicate the burden of illiteracy caused by poverty in the country.
