President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says Ghanaians will not entrust power into the hands of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2020 led by former President John Dramani Maham, because they still have not woken up from their dreams.
The President said on Tuesday, August 13, when he addressed staff and students of the Bolgatanga Senior High School, Bolgatanga, in the Upper East Region, as part of his 2-day working visit to that region.
He said, “I know that there are people in this country who don’t want this policy [free Senior High School Policy], who have been campaigning against this policy. They are dreaming that they are going to come back to power to cancel the policy. They did not know that the Ghanaian people were no longer interested in entrusting them with power. They still haven’t woken up from their dreams”.
The 2020 election, President Akufo-Addo stressed, is going to give Ghanaians another opportunity to tell the opposition NDC that “they live in another world and we the people of Ghana also live in another world.”
To the critics of the policy, he stated that the most effective answer would be for SHS 3 students, who would be sitting for next year’s WASSCE, to put up a stellar performance in their examination.
But Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Peter Otukunor Boamah has cleared their stance on the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) policy implementation, stating emphatically that they will not cancel the policy should they capture power in 2020.
In an interview with Kwame Adinkra on Kumasi-based Pure FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com cleared that, the President is being delusional as the achievements of ex-President Mahama is scaring him to opposition. Hence, his resort to rhetorics and propaganda.
Mr. Otukonor stated that, because the President has failed at governing the country and has nothing to show for it, he has resorted to disparaging ex-President Mahama at every least chance he gets which is very shameful.
