Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has quizzed National Democratic Congress flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama for promising he’ll expand the free senior high school policy to private schools.
Speaking on Nimdie FM in Sunyani on Thursday, Dr. Bawumia slammed the former president for saying the free shs was impossible and a hoax but now seek to benefit from it.
“How can you say you will expand Free SHS when you did not believe in it?” Dr. Bawumia asked Mahama.
“Mahama said Free SHS is a hoax. He said it was 419 and he said it is impossible. But after President Akufo-Addo successfully implemented it for the benefit of Ghanaians, he is now going round telling Ghanaians that he will expand it to private schools if Ghanaians vote for him.”
“When Nana Akufo-Addo said he would implement Free SHS to make sure every child goes to school for free, Mahama told Ghanaians that it wasn’t possible and if he had 2 billion cedis, he would not invest it in Free SHS.”
