Ex–President John Dramani Mahama has accused the government led by President Nana Akufo-Addo of implementing some of the policies outlined in the National Democratic Congress’ manifesto.
Speaking at a town hall meeting held in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region, he mentioned a few saying that the suspension of the teacher licensure exams, the consultation of stakeholders on legalizing Okada amongst others shows how desperate the president is in winning the general elections to be held in December.
“The NPP seems to be implementing some of the policies captured in our manifesto. Recently, they revealed that consultations have begun to review the law banning the activities of okada riders. Similarly, the Teacher licensure exam has been suspended after we promised to cancel it in our manifesto. In the same vein, owners of private schools are being engaged after we promised to extend the coverage of the free SHS policy to such schools in deprived areas without government’s free SHS. Even though they accused us of not thinking through our promises, the NPP is implementing them”.
Mr. Mahama also promise to fix the Santasi Apire road which caused residents to demonstrate yesterday in Kumasi if given the nod in the December general elections.
