Governance is about planning and common sense – Mahama

Former President John Mahama Former President John Mahama

Former President John Mahama has criticized the Akufo-Addo government over what he says is the ‘botched’ implementation of Free SHS policy.

According to him the Free SHS Policy is good but the implementation is absolutely poor.

He said governance is about ” planning and common sense” hence the ruling NPP should have first provided the infrastructure to accommodate the exponential students population before carrying out the programme.

Addressing delegates at Akyem Tafo in Abuakwa North in the Eastern region, Mr. Mahama stressed that NDC will complete 200 community Day SHS and abolish the double track system.

President Mahama has maintained he’ll review the Akufo-Addo government’s Free SHS policy , if elected President in December 2020.

The policy, according to him is taking a nose-dive because government failed to assemble experts and stakeholders for a national conference on education to deliberate on the policy.

President John Dramani Mahama is currently on a 5-day campaign tour of the Eastern Region where he’s meeting delegates in various constituencies ahead of the party’s Presidential primaries.
