The Headmaster of Techiman Senior High School, M.K. Boakye has been queried by the Municipal Director of Education, Godfred Axolu for allowing the flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo to address the students during his Restore Hope tour of the Brong-Ahafo Region.

After touring the Techiman South constituency on Wednesday October 17, 2012, Nana Akufo-Addo booked an appointment with the students after the close of school to address them.

The students, who trooped to the venue in their numbers, gave Nana a rousing welcome when he arrived on their campus.

The flagbearer spoke extensively on the free SHS policy and appealed to the staff and students to give their votes to him so as to make his dream of making SHS education free, a reality.

He touched on the Teacher First Policy, promising that when voted into power, his government would make sure each teacher who has been in the system for 10 years is given a house at a place of their choice.

According to Nana Akufo-Addo, if countries like Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Uganda and Kenya could make SHS free for their citizens, he saw no reason why a country like Ghana, which was endowed with cocoa, timber, diamond, gold, manganese, bauxite, oil among others, could not make SHS free.

He also referred to the millions of Ghana Cedis which were dubiously paid out to NDC cronies like Alfred Agbesi Woyome as judgment debts which could have been used to sponsor the free SHS.

A day after the visit, the Municipal Director wrote to the headmaster asking him to explain why he should not be sanctioned for allowing Nana Akufo-Addo to address the students.

Some members of staff, who had a hint of the letter, threatened to lay down their chalks if the MDE sanctioned the headmaster.

Speaking to DAILY GUIDE on the basis of anonymity, a tutor of the school said they were aware the Municipal Director of Education was a dye in the wool supporter of the NDC; hence, his rush to query the headmaster for allowing Nana Akufo-Addo to address the students.

Investigations conducted by DAILY GUIDE indicated that it was the Brong-Ahafo Regional Minister, Kwadwo Nyamekye Marfo who ordered the director to sanction the headmaster for allowing Nana to address the students.
