Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has questioned President John Dramani Mahamaís claims of being caring and working for Ghanaians, whiles at the same opposing a developmental policy, the free Senior High School education.

The NPP leader opines that President Mahama, having benefitted from the free SHS, ought to be an ďapostle of the policyĒ, rather than stridently opposing it.

According to the NPP flagbearer, President Mahama reportedly took advantage of the free education intervention introduced by Ghanaís first president, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah for people of northern decent, when his (Mahamaís) father who was then a minister at the time and could have afforded to pay for his (Mahamaís) education, sent him to the north; upon completion of his basic school at the famous Achimota School to take advantage of the free secondary education.

Nana Akufo-Addo made these pronouncements at a rally held at Kaase in the Asokwa constituency as part of his tour of the Ashanti region and also to introduce the partyís candidate for the constituency, Patricia Appaih Agyei to the electorate.

It was day of rare act of spontaneity and naturalness of the responses of the enthusiastic people as they defied all odds just to catch a glimpse of Nana Addo and to assimilate and imbibe at first hand, the main man behind the much touted proposed Free SHS.

In all, the NPP flagbearer visited three places within the Asokwa constituency to restore hope.

Nana Addo told the gathering that should he renege on his avowed promise of actualizing the free SHS concept, Ghanaians should take him to the cleaners.

When she took her turn, Madam Patricia Appiagyei told the crowd to vote massively for the NPP to enable Nana Addo put things right and make their dream a reality. She said Nana Addo has carefully thought through the policy and done all the calculations and hence will implement it if given the mandate.

She promised that as Member of Parliament for the Asokwa constituency she will work assiduously to continue the good works of her predecessor, Maxwell Kofi Jumah.

Perhaps the highlight of the rally was the visible cordial and peaceful relation between Hon. Maxwell Kofi Jumah and Madam Appiagyei.

When the incumbent MP, Hon. Maxwell Kofi Jumah took the microphone to address the crowd, he pointed out that the seat is not the bonafide property of any individual and since his tenure as MP for the constituency had come to an end, they need to vote massively for Mad. Patricia Appiagyei and Nana Addo.

Similar community gatherings also took place at Gyinyase and Atonsu Dompoase all within the Asokwa Constituency.
