NDC’s Flip Flops on Education
There is a restaurant in the USA which serves all kinds of sandwiches. It goes by the name “Which Wich”, so you, the customer has to specify which sandwich you will be ordering.
The Education Policy of a nation cannot and must not be treated the same way as we used to play “chaskele” when we were young.
A government’s position on education should not be seen as a “Which Wich” issue or a “chaskele” game.
Listed below are five positions on education taken by five top
men(including President Mahama) of the National Democratic Congress:

1. Lee Ocran (Minister of Education ): “NPP Members Are Such Great Liars?They Always Doublespeak”
Date: 12 September 2012

“The Education Minister, on Monday, described as cheap talk, Nana Akufo-Addo?s flagship electoral promise of free SHS education. At a news conference in Accra, Lee Ocran, who is Ghana?s former Ambassador to South Africa, said not only did Nana Akufo-Addo get the facts and figures concerning SHS education wrong, but also cannot implement the policy.”

A Deputy Information Minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has warned Ghanaians to be wary of the NPP?s promise of free secondary education if Nana Akufo-Addo becomes President.
The NPP and its flag bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo have on several platforms promised to make SHS free as a means to build the human resource of the country with the latest being his address to Ghanaians during the IEA Presidential Evening Encounter on Tuesday. He described the promise as not viable ??”

He stated that free education could not be achieved without the laying of a solid education foundation, saying that still remained to be achieved in the country.”

4. “NDC will make education progressively free “- Haruna Iddrisu

5 October 2012

“In an apparent response to the NPP’s promise of free senior high school education which may be threatening the re-election bid of the governing NDC, Communication Minister Haruna Iddrisu says education will be made progressively free under the NDC.
Whilst promising Ghanaians a progressively free education, the articulate Tamale South Member of Parliament described as ?doubtful, unrealistic and unattainable,? the signature pledge of the opposition New Patriotic Party to make SHS education free when voted into power.
Mr. Iddrisu told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Friday the NPP’s promise was a deceptive, politically convenient pledge.”

“The ruling NDC is promising to ensure full implementation of free basic education if voters retain it in power in the December elections.

Launching its 2012 manifesto in Ho Thursday, President John Mahama assured an NDC administration will expand access, build 200 new Senior High Schools and 10 training colleges to produce the teachers needed to drive its education expansion program.

Given the policy the NDC will implement, the president assured basic education will be made truly free by 2016.”

The NDC should stop confusing Ghanaians. We are not at a “Which Wich” Restaurant.
