I’ll resign if NPP provides evidence of Mahama’s Free SHS cancellation comment – Nketia dares
General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has placed his position on the line should anybody be able to provide a recorded video and audio of former President John Mahama saying he will cancel the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy introduced by President Akufo-Addo.
According to him, the allegation was conceived and hatched by some journalists on the payroll of the Akufo-Addo government.
Speaking on Okay FM’s “Ade Akye Abia” Morning Show, General Mosquito as affectionately called, insisted that former President Mahama never said anywhere that he will scrap the Free SHS policy.
“…..where did former President Mahama said that he will cancel the Free Senior High School when he comes to power? He has never said it anywhere and I dare anybody with evidence to bring it out…I will resign as General Secretary if anybody can come up with video or audio evidence of President Mahama saying he will scrap the free SHS. This is the creation of some journalists who are on the payroll of the Akufo-Addo government,” he asserted.
He maintained that the Mahama government in three months after winning the 2020 general elections will review the Free Senior High School policy through stakeholders’ engagement to resolve the gulf in the educational structure at the secondary level.
