President Mahama has mocked what he describes as the main opposition NPP's single campaign message of free education.
The President said apart from the free Senior High School promise, Nana Akufo Addo is bereft of any other message.
President Mahama who took his campaign to the Eastern region on Thursday told a crowd of supporters at Asuogyaman that unlike the NPP, his party has a comprehensive plan to address issues in the country.
“We are going to advance our better Ghana Agenda. As for some people, they have only one policy; if you ask how they will solve maternal mortality they will say free SHS.
“If you ask how they can solve load shedding they will say free SHS, it is true education is important but other aspects of human life are equally important.
“It doesn’t take education alone to make the human being, you need good healthcare, you need adequate housing, you need energy and electricity for power, you need good roads, hospitals, clothing, good environment and good food to make an all round human being” President Mahama said.
