Deceitful Mahama is a threat to free SHS- Dennis Aboagye

The Communications Director for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s Campaign Team, Hon. Dennis Miracle Aboagye, has cautioned Ghanaians not to fall for the deceit of the flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama. 

At a press conference held on Tuesday, April, 9, 2024 at the Bawumia’s Campaign Office in Accra, Aboagye highlighted that Mahama’s perception on the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy is a direct threat to his political resurgence and the future of the NDC party.

His comment comes John Dramani Mahama has challenged the authenticity of the recent results for the West Africa Senior Schools Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

According to Mahama, some invigilators relax on the job as teachers are found aiding students in answering questions.

In his recent campaign tour, John Mahama described government’s distribution of tablets to high school students as a form of vote-buying.

This comes after the government in March launched a program that will make tablets available to over one million students to aid in teaching and learning.

Addressing a student forum at the Wisconsin University in Accra, the NDC flagbearer said government initiated this policy to convince the students who are turning 18 to vote for the NPP in the December polls.

He stated that, “you bring a new curriculum, the children have no textbooks in basic schools for the last four years and you think that giving pre-tertiary students tablets is more important. Of course, everybody knows the political expediency.”

It is prior to these comments from NDC flagbearer the Communications Director of Bawumia’s Campaign issued a stark warning to Ghanaians regarding John Dramani Mahama.

According to him, Mahama should come out clear on his stands for the free SHS policy.

He added that though the NDC flagbearer has revealed to review the free SHS policy, he questioned if Mahama’s review means to cancel or ask parents to pay half of the fees of their wards or not?

“The success of the Free SHS policy is a threat to the NDC and their perennial flag-bearer who believes Ghanaians have short memories,” Aboagye asserted.

He emphasized that contrary to Mahama’s assumption that Ghanaians have forgetful tendencies, citizens vividly recall the hardships endured under the Mahama-led administration.

“Ghanaians do not have short memories as he has always assumed. Ghanaians remember how students were sacked from class due to the inability of their parents to pay their fees,” Aboagye stated passionately.

Highlighting the transformative shifts brought about by the NPP administration, he reflected on the time when students grappled with the spectre of expulsion from examination centres and the anxiety of withheld results due to outstanding fees, significantly impeding their educational pursuits.

Additionally, Aboagye underscored the marked improvements in academic performance resulting from the government’s practical measures and policies.

Since the implementation of the Free SHS policy, there has been a noticeable improvement in academic performance among students,” he affirmed.

With access to quality education and support from teachers, many students have excelled academically, achieving high scores in examinations such as the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).”

Moreover, Aboagye pointed out that beneficiaries of the government’s Free SHS policy are thriving in their post-secondary education, with some even securing places in prestigious international universities.

He also mentioned that other beneficiaries have received top sub-regional awards and honours, demonstrating the positive impact of the policy on Ghana’s youth.
