Kwaku Baako Endorses Nana Addo's Free SHS Policy

Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Kweku Baako has taken sides with the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) ‘Free SHS’ policy.

According to him so far as it is a constitutional mandate, there is the need to take the intrepid steps to institute it no matter the kind of leadership.

Speaking as a panelist on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, he applauded the political parties who think that free education can be achieved in this country and urged electorates to take the sides of those political parties.

“…we should not create the impression that access before quality or affordability; as for me I am absolutely for free education. My ideological orientation makes me accept that in principle. It is in the constitution and so it is a matter of leadership; the choice the leadership makes which is critical.

“I will advice the good people of this country to make the right choice which for me is those who are ready to initiate bold policies in the education front. The NPP, PPP and the CPP have stated that the free education is possible. So it is not just one party…” he asserted.
