Vote for Bawumia because Mahama is plotting to cancel free SHS – Ahiagbah

Ghanaians have been reassured by the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Director of Communications, Richard Ahiagbah, that the party’s leader, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will step up efforts to implement the free senior high school policy.

He said that National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Dramani Mahama was preparing to reverse the policy. Therefore, in the general elections of 2024, votes for Dr. Bawumia should be cast.

Mr. Ahiagbah stated, “Ghanaians can rest assured that Bawumia will intensify the implementation of the Free SHS policy as president,” in a post on his X platform. H.E. Mahama and the NDC, however, have denounced and labeled the Free SHS scheme as a fraud.

“They are plotting to abolish/cancel it unless you stop them by voting for Bawumia. It’s possible…”

Recently, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia engaged with the National Executives of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) to share his plans in the educational sector with them.

The engagement took place at the seat of government, the Jubilee House in Accra on Monday, April 22.

Dr Bawumia indicated after the meeting that the national executives of CHASS made some “excellent” contributions to improving the free Senior High School Policy and general aspects of education.

In a Facebook post after the meeting, he said “I used the opportunity to explain my vision of leveraging the private sector and an enhanced credit system to expand educational infrastructure and support teaching and non-teaching staff to improve the quality of education and educational outcomes.

“Under my proposal (which I mentioned during my February 7th speech at UPSA), the private sector will be encouraged to build infrastructure (such as dormitories, classrooms, etc.), which the government will rent over years and own it after some time.

The government will also lease buses for schools. This new mode of financing will avoid huge initial government outlays (through the GETFUND) and delays in the completion of infrastructure projects in our senior high schools.”

“Like me,” he added “CHASS is excited about the prospects of this policy proposal as it will reduce the educational infrastructure deficit, improve maintenance, enhance the quality of education and at the same time improve the management of Government expenditure.
