'Free SHS here to stay': Work on your incompetence - Mahama told

John Mahama John Mahama

Former President, John Dramani Mahama has been admonished to stop running commentary on the government's flagship policy; free education, rather work to purge himself from the incompetence he exhibited when in office as head of state.

"NDC led by it flagbearer must first make sure they kill incompetence that has bedevilled them and stop thinking reviewing the implementation of the free Senior High School policy", Sports Authority Board Chair, Hon. Kwadwo Baa Agyamang advised.

The former New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker for Asante Akim North in the Ashanti Region who spoke on a local radio station in an interview monitored explained Mr John Mahama, finally admitting to the importance of the free education policy being implemented by the Nana Addo administration shows unseriousness

According to Hon. Kwadwo Baa Agyamang, instead of looking for the development of the Ghanaian people and generations yet unborn, the NDC flagbearer is playing to the gallery rather.

The former President who was speaking at the official opening of the 27th Annual Presidential Delegates Congress of the Ghana National Union of Technical Students on Wednesday in Kumasi said: “I am determined to make the free SHS a beneficial learning experience more than the current miserable condition our children are facing under Nana Akufo-Addo.”

In a sharp response, however, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia threw a challenge to the former President to tell Ghanaians a concrete alternative policy which is better than the current double-track system adopted under the free senior high school (SHS) policy.
