The former Minister in charge of Tertiary Education Elizabeth Ohene says the NPP’s campaign is not all about Free Senior High education as being portrayed in the media.
Speaking to XYZ News, Madam Ohene said the main opposition NPP has set the agenda for the elections on various issues such as education, corruption, health, agriculture amongst others.
The NPP Flagbearer’s promise of free SHS education has taken centre-stage in the political discourse ahead of December 7 polls.
Elizabeth Ohene says the NPP’s opponents are those who have focused so much on Nana Akufo-Addo’s free SHS promise.
“In this whole campaign I think it is fair to say that the agenda has been set by the NPP. We are not the ones talking only about free education; it is our opponents who seem to talk about nothing else.
“Instead of putting out there what they want to do, they are going round saying that we can’t do it…It is not a one issue campaign as far as we are concerned” Madam Ohene said.
