PRESS CONFERENCE BY HO-ANLOKORDZI BRANCH OF THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS (NDC) ON THE TOPIC ‘NANA AKUFFO ADDO’S FREE SHS POLICY NOT NECESSARY -SAYS EX. PREZ. KUFFOUR’
Good BETTER GHANA AGENDA morning to you all members of the press herein gathered. You are all welcome!
Ladies and gentlemen, we have invited you here today, to speak on a very important remark by Former President Kuffour in an interview with radio XYZ. It is very surprising and ludicrous to note that, after the NPP has gone breadth and depth of this country to say Free SHS education is one of the most important areas of priority to them when voted into power by quoting GDP to convince/confuse themselves and Ghanaians.
The Former President has admonished government to focus on the private sector to reduce the high unemployment rate in the country. He lamented over the formation of unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana as an evidence of the seriousness of how problem has bedeviled the nation.
Government must create the enabling environment for the private sector to enable them thrive and aid in addressing the unemployment situation
in the country. He said
We hope the Former President was making this call to His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, the one we believe has the best of policies to curb the current unemployment situation which has been a headache to us as a country and not ‘FREE SHS EDUCATION’ as propounded by Nana Akuffo Addo forgetting that all these students must be gainfully employed one day.
It is also interesting to note that, the Former President said as a country we need to look at people who have good policies for the country and vote for them.
This in our opinion points out to the fact that our leaders must be proactive in trying to solve the existing problems before implementing new policies and not to be deceiving people with ‘Free SHS Education Policy’
Ladies and gentlemen, the former President elaborated on the point that if you are not convince about the policies of a flag bearer and you drop your vote for him, you will get disappointed. It is very true, so Ghanaians should be deceived with the so called ‘FREE SHS EDUCATION POLICY.
Taking a careful look at President John Dramani Mahama, he has the best of team, people who cares about Ghanaians, people who believe there are human beings in every part of the country including Hohoe in the Volta Region.
The right man for the job is already in motion and must be given the chance to continue what he has started and he is no other person but His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama. We should therefore not dance to the ‘FREE SHS EDUCATION POLICY’ melody of the NPP. We should be minded of the fact that, we must always ‘count one before two’ Unemployment is one the main problems facing us today as a country and not SHS EDUCATION.

Long Live President John Dramani Mahama
