Free SHS not about NDC and NPP - President


. .IBRAHIM MAHAMA’s CHILDREN ENJOR NORTHERN SCHOLARSHIP.
Most of those criticizing the Free SHS are from the north but they forget that the NPP government has abolished the exorbitant admission fees that used to be an albatross on the necks of brilliant northern students who gain admission into the SHS. Hither to, most poor parents up north used to cough out huge sums ranging between GHS1,500 to GHS2500 as admission fees. This forces most northern families to sell two to three cows - including pregnant ones - to be able to meet this obligation. Another nonsense these ungrateful northern elites are peddling is that some parents can afford the school fees of their wards and so there is no need for the NPP government to implement free SHS on a wholesale basis. Fellow Ghanaians, do you know that the children of Ibrahim Mahama and Asuma Banda are qualified to enjoy free education up north? This is the hypocrisy of northern politicians.
