Deputy Director of Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Maame Afia Akoto, cannot fathom why members of the Minority in Parliament are doing everything possible to tarnish Presidents Akufo-Addo’s dream towards free Senior High School [SHS] education.

According to her, the National Democratic Congress [NDC] since the launch of free SHS have had nothing positive to say about the policy, even including the Ex-President, John Dramani Mahama.

“All comments from their [NDC] camp in relation to the policy are nothing to write home about. Indeed, why is their wish so strong to collapse the policy? … They should be bold and tell us what is haunting them per this approach. Is it that they never believed we could implement it?” she rhetorically quizzed.

She was contributing to discussions on remarks made by the former president at NDC’s Unity Walk held in Tarkwa over the weekend on Kasapa fm’s Morning Show.

The Former President took a swipe at President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for rushing to implement the free Senior High School (SHS) policy, hinting of a possible reversal of the programme by a future National Democratic Congress (NDC) government since it is not mandatory.

“Why should the government introduce free education now when the Constitution says it should be done progressively? In fact, it is not by force to introduce free SHS now,” Mr John Mahama underscored.

The former president predicted that the challenges associated with the free Senior High School (SHS) policy would not cease unless there was a comprehensive funding strategy.

But the MASLOC Deputy Director argues that “the only truth to free SHS existence is for Ghanaians to keep the NDC in opposition for long, since they have no good conscience towards its success.”
