Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Flag-bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has re-emphasized that the free Senior High School (SHS) education policy by the party would relieve Ghanaians from the heavy burden of paying fees.
Nana Akufo-Addo said parents had suffered for far too long in paying heavy amounts of monies on their children’s education while those who could not afford see their wards either doing menial jobs or roam about aimlessly.
He made the statement on Wednesday when he made a brief visit to Afutu, a suburb of Nsawam, as part of his campaign tour to introduce the party’s parliamentary candidates to the people in the area.
Nana Akufo-Addo said without proper education to the youth as future leaders, the country would lack in its better developmental agenda and appealed to parents, guardians and supporters of the NPP to vote for him and his parliamentary candidates to allow his vision to come to fruition.
He said if NPP government was given the mandate in the coming December 7 election more jobs would be created in all the ten regions in order to give the youth employment.
Mr Frank Annoh-Dompreh, NPP parliamentary candidate for Nsawam-Adoagyiri who was introduced to the people by the Flag-bearer, called on members and supporters of the party to vote massively for Nana Akufo-Addo and himself for them to bring development and to restore the bad governance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
“We will not look on and allow the NDC party to destroy the economy of the country for the present and future generations to suffer so I am calling on all sympathisers of our great NPP party to go out there on December 7 to vote the NDC out,” Mr Annoh-Dompreh appealed.
