The National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Sammy Awuku has said the National Democratic Congress has no credibility of implementing its policy to absorb full fees of first-time tertiary students.
Addressing the media after monitoring the special voting at the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Sammy Awuku said the policy is sign that the NDC will loose the elections.
He said “Let’s cut the joke. There is this Akan saying that if someone who has nothing promises you the world, you have to be careful of the person. It was this same person who cancelled the teacher training and nursing training allowances when he was President. If he could not pay these allowances for a few people, how will he be able to absorb the fees of these students? It is clear that they have no blueprint or policy document on how to roll this out.”
He revealed that the NPP as part of its last lap campaign strategy will focus on community tailored engagements.
“The President has so far been well-received in the communities he has entered. We want him to do more of the community and constituency engagements. We are going to observe COVID-19 protocols while doing so to prevent a spike in cases.” he added.
The NDC announced earlier that it has a policy that will absorb all full fees of all students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in 2021.
It said the policy dubbed “fa ninyinaa” was a recommendation from its Education Policy Group which has been accepted and incorporated into the NDC’s 2020 election manifesto.
