Gospel Musician, Nicholas Omane Acheampong has pleaded with former President John Dramani Mahama to step aside for Akufo-Addo to rule for a second term.
According to the ‘Tabitha Kum’ hitmaker, the Free SHS policy introduced by the Akufo-Addo government needs to be nurtured very well by the President in order to fill all lapses before another government comes to take over.
He made this known in an interview with Halifax Ansah-Addo on the ‘Best Entertainment Show’ Monday morning.
“It’s about time we speak the truth as it is, Mahama lost the 2016 elections due to certain line of his communication. He had access to the whole country’s money, all what he was telling us was about roads and interchange and certain Kasoa overhead. My mother in the village didn’t know about it, she was not satisfied when hungry with the aspect of the said overheads, young and poor children didn’t understand what interchange was, adding such aspect to your messages towards an election was a failure. Campaigning with interchanges was his lead to failure.
“Meanwhile the one who talked about the Free SHS message since 2018 has made it happen. I was moved to the side of Nana Addo with his Free SHS campaign. One of the major problems in this country is free access to education, my whole issue concerning lack of education was about money. I couldn’t continue my education due to money. Mahama was seriously against the Free SHS campaign, he spoke ill about it, now it has been successful so what is his issue.”
“I call it the red line because If the government is able to help the children to cross that Red Line even if they cannot continue to Tertiary, they can join the Police, Army, fire service, Military with their High School Certificate. If not for nothing at all, I am for the NPP and Nana Addo because of the Free SHS. Let’s support Nana Addo who dug the foundation for Free SHS to build it well so that if after 2020 you come all of us will join in supporting you because by then, Free SHS will have a good foundation,” he indicated.
