The National Chairman of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) , Nii Allotey Brew Hammond has rejected claims by the Akufo-Addo Bawumia Government that, the new free Senior High School policy introduced is an achievement.
`I don’t think [free SHS] is an achievement. This is not the first time government has implemented free SHS. Nkrumah introduced free education for everyone. They are not implementing free SHS. They are giving scholarships to first year students. The third year students are paying school fees so why call it free SHS. I don’t think they [NPP] were ready; they only rushed to implement it just to score some political points” he explained.
Speaking on Homebase Tv’s Morning Show ‘Eboboba’ with Nana Yaa Boamponsem Ameyaw on Thursday, Nii Allotey stated that, the Akufo-Addo Government is only interested in winning political points from Ghanaians.
“What has changed since Nana Addo became president? Nothing has changed. The only thing that has changed is moving one set of people out and bringing a different category of people in. What I want to do is to follow the due process for Ghanaians to elect MMDCEs and solve the issue of corruption in the country as promised in 2016” he addded.
