No room for hypocrisy on Free SHS – Bawumia Jabs Mahama

The Vice President, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says there should be no room for hypocrisy on the implementation and beneficiaries of the Free Senior High School (SHS) Education policy.

In a jab aimed at former President John Dramani Mahama, the Vice President said the government had no plans to stop the policy.

“I hear somebody [former President Mahama] says we are spending so much on free SHS. Have you heard him? He said we are spending so much so we won’t have money for other things. Did you hear that?

“You who said free SHS was not possible. When you did not have free SHS under your government, you couldn’t pay teachers and nursing training allowance, you couldn’t pay National Health Insurance, is it free SHS which stopped you?

“I’m from the North. I benefitted from free education. It is good for the people of the north and it is good for the people of Ghana,” he said to the buzz of vuvuzelas and cheers from the crowd.

“It must be enjoyed by everybody,” he told a cheering crowd at a mini rally organised by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Obo at Kwahu in the Eastern Region on Easter Saturday.

The address was preceded by a walk that brought the towns on the Kwahu Ridge to a standstill as thousands of supporters of the party poured on the streets.
