Purge yourself of incompetence – NSA Board Chair advises Mahama

Former President, John Dramani Mahama Former President, John Dramani Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has been admonished to stop running commentary on government’s free Senior High School policy and rather work on purging himself from the incompetence he exhibited when he was in office as Commander-In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces.

“NDC led by its flagbearer must first make sure they kill incompetence that has bedevilled them and stop thinking about reviewing the implementation of the free Senior High School policy”, Sports Authority Board Chairman, 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 that candidate John Mahama, finally admitting to the importance of the free education policy being implemented by the Nana Addo administration shows his unseriousness

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

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 last week in Kumasi is reported to have 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.
