Free SHS not about NPP or NDC – Akufo-Addo
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called on every Ghanaian especially political leaders, traditional rulers, parents, teachers and students to support the Free Senior High School policy to make it a success and sustainable.
“If the Free SHS policy is to succeed, and if we are to build the modern, progressive and prosperous Ghana we desire, each and every one of us – political leaders, traditional rulers, teachers, parents, students – has a major stake in ensuring that we achieve excellence in our educational system. The policy is not about the NPP or the NDC,” he said.
Nana Akufo-Addo said this on Sunday, 18 March 2018 when he attended the 65th Anniversary of the Seventh Day Adventist Senior High School in Bekwai in the Ashanti region.
He noted that the policy should not be politicised because “the beneficiaries are not only NPP members or sympathisers. They are Ghanaians from all walks of life and from all political persuasions”.
“This is about Ghana, and how best to build a progressive and prosperous nation for this and future generations. All Ghanaians should support the policy to ensure its success,” he added.
