The General Secretary of the Progressive People’s Party, Kofi Asamoah Siaw, has described the NDC’s Free SHS Policy as discriminatory.
He was speaking in Sunyani as part of the party’s tour of the Brong Ahafo Region, dubbed ‘Awake and Vote for Change.’
Mr Siaw stated that the party launched ‘Awake and Vote for Change’ to show their readiness for the 2016 elections. Accompanied by the party’s Chairman, Nii Allotey Brew Hammond, they are touring Brong Ahafo to interact with the executives of the party to map out strategies as the election year approaches.
Mr Siaw noted that the Free SHS Policy of the NDC is discriminatory against boarders at the SHS as it favours only day students.
Mr Siaw noted that boarders at SHS pay more than day students, thus the government has opted for the easy way out.
He said the PPP has the best policy, and, therefore, called on Ghanaians to be wise and not be deceived by the NDC as the general elections approach.
Mr Siaw revealed that the PPP has the best policy on education, and called on Ghanaians to vote for the PPP in 2016.
Mr Siaw noted that education, which is the bedrock of the country’s development, should not be toyed with.
“What the NDC is doing is just a mere propaganda; it’s a vote-buying scheme they have introduced as the Free SHS.
“How many schools did they promise to build to start the programme? Two hundred; as we speak, they have only inaugurated one,” he noted.
The PPP’s parliamentary candidate for the Sunyani East Constituency, Vivian Kakie Tetteh, was introduced by the chairman of the party, Nii Allotey Brew Hammond.
Madam Vivian Kakie Tetteh called on the party members to support her win the seat.
