SO IT IS NO MORE 1D1F?


Is this the first time you are hearing about free education from the president? The guy campaigned on it in 2012 and was even grilled on it I believe on BBC. It has always been a major part of Akuffo-Addo's agenda to give the poor a chance. You would think a party like NDC who claim to be a "socialist" party would support such an intervention for the poor. It tells you that most of what NDC says is rhetoric -- they are socialist by day and capitalist by night and at heart. The question is why are Mahama and his Northern colleagues against this initiative when they benefited from free education? 1D1F will happen, talking about free SHS now does not diminish 1D1F. Note that these factories are NOT going to be government run factories because those don't work, they are going to be in the form of incentives to existing or new private ventures and that has started already. It is the private sector that drives the economy.
