Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia
The NPP Vice Presidential candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has assured Ghanaians that the free Senior High Secondary school concept will be implemented in the first budget of the next NPP administration under Nana Akufo-Addo?s leadership.
He said a committee has been set up to ensure its implementation by September 2013.
According to Dr. Bawumia, Nana Akufo-Addo?s government will fulfill all its electoral promises.
The NPP vice-presidential candidate was addressing the national conference of NPP youth in Accra on Wednesday.
He announced the NPP?s agenda to embark on a national youth tour beginning next September to canvass for more votes saying, ?all of you are going to be very involved in the next couple of weeks when we hit the country on a national youth tour to discuss youth issues in every region.?
?We will be visiting institutions, the informal sector youth camps, hair dressing saloons and bases wherever we can find the youth at the polytechnics, universities, training colleges and wherever we can find the youth to discuss these key issues that pertain to the welfare of the youth,? he added.
Meanwhile, the National Youth Organizer of the party has challenged President John Mahama to demonstrate that he is indeed within the youth bracket by solving the nation?s graduate unemployment canker.
He said the NDC government instead of fixing the nation?s unprecedented youth unemployment has rather focused on hyping its propaganda gimmicks.
He described the NPP Vice Presidential candidate as an intergenerational technocrat who understands and has concrete solutions to the problem of youth unemployment.
He said: ?In this election it is the issue about the youth and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia virtually represents that constituency and we believe he is more in touch with the issues that are confronting the youth of this country; the biggest problem that we are confronted with as a nation is the issue about youth unemployment and this issue is a very serious one and already we are hearing about movements that have certainly been formed in support of President Mahama and all these splinter groups that are coming out we are not perturbed at all.?
