Nana Addo’s Free SHS an agenda to solicit votes from youths – Rex Omar
Rex Omar, a staunch member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Chairman of GHAMRO has accused the Akufo-Addo administration of implementing the Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy aim at soliciting votes from the youths.
According to him, the people in charge of the policy are mishandling the implementation process, making the whole policy look terrible.
He made the comment while reacting to questions from Nana Ama Mcbrown, host of ‘United Showbiz’ on UTV Saturday evening as to whether the policy has served its beneficial purpose.
According to him, the government implemented the policy in aim of seeking votes from the young students as well as has failed to implement comprehensive programmes
“Nana Ama, let me say something to you, thanks for this opportunity but with regards to the whatever FREE SHS policy, we talk as if the Free SHS is only education. We start schooling from the Kindergarten, then move to Primary, JHS then SHS comes in. I want Ghanaians to understand something, if we want or seek for FREE SCHOOLING, it should start from the start.
“Any visionary person who wants goodwill for its kids will not start implementing FREE SHS only for certain people, he’ll start from the ground. Nana Addo targeted implementing FREE SHS all because of votes, he knew by the end of completing secondary school, you’ll be 18 years, geared towards voting, reason he started calling them Nana Addo graduates, it was all to deceive the ordinary Ghanaian for votes at the end of his 4 years”
He continued, “Don’t we still have students attending schools under trees? Don’t we still have young ones whom might not even get the opportunity to attend Kindergarten? If truly truly, we are serious as a country ready to implement FREE EDUCATION, does it start from SHS or from the start? NPP politics and policy of FREE SHS was implemented for votes, they targeted SHS because of votes.”
