Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere,?Dan Botwe, ?has challenged the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to provide any alternative policy to the free Senior High School (SHS) education the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has promised.?
He said, ?I want to challenge the NDC to provide an alternative education policy to counter the NPP?s free SHS.?
Mr Botwe said the NDC propaganda against the free SHS policy was as a result of ignorance and lack of vision to improve the country?s educational sector, urging?the electorate not to listen to the NDC and vote massively for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and the NPP to implement the policy and enable every Ghanaian child to have access to secondary education.
The former general secretary of the NPP said this when he addressed the people of Asamankese in the Lower West Akyem Constituency.
According to him, he was surprised at the NDC?s stance against what he says would be a transformational education policy.
?It amazes me that the NDC as a Social Democrat Party seeks to shoot down free education,? he added.
The Okere MP said the ruling NDC had demonstrated that paying judgement debts was important than providing free education to the country?s future leaders.
He said that the NPP flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo was unperturbed by the ruling party?s criticisms and remained committed to implementing the free SHS policy.
He said if the NDC had no alternative policy then they should leave the NPP alone and allow Ghanaians to bring back the NPP to come and implement the programme.
