Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe (Abronye DC) says as part of measures by his parties government to close the gap in the infrastructure deficit of the nations senior high school system, a total of 998 educational facilities are set to be completed across the country by July this year.

Speaking on Net 2 TV Wednesday, Abronye said the agenda by the Akufo-Addo led government to increase the infrastructural capacity of senior high schools in the country is to make the Free Senior High School policy by the current government successful and sustainable.

He took a dig at Former President John Dramani Mahama and his NDC administration by claiming they wasted some $156 million which could have otherwise benefited the nation immensely on fruitless ventures while amassing some of the money.

"Unlike Mahama who went for $156 million dollars and squandered it, all these infrastructures that the current goverment is putting up is from the tax we all pay in this country. Within this short period, we have had a truthful leader who has been able to put up 998 classroom blocks and dormitories in just two years. This has never happened before in the history of this country.

If this was an NDC government all revenue the country is gaining from its oil resources would have been squandered in the name of capacity building. John Mahama would have gathered a few people and come back to tell us they taught computer, basket weaving and how to ride a bicycle. Yes, our oil money was used to teach people how to ride a bicycle under John Mahama." He said.

He alluded that come December when Ghanaians go to the polls they will be faced with two options which is a judicious choice in the person of President Akufo-Addo and the second option of a "fraudster" in the person of ex-president Mahama.
