The Education minister has for the second time made a comparison of the Akufo-Addo regime so far to that of the country’s first president, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh said by implementing the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy, the Akufo-Addo-led administration has outperformed successive administrations.
He asked doubters of the policy if it could be said that by delivering on the policy they’ve also outperformed the administration of the country’s first president, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
The minister in March this year, made a similar comment when the administration distributed pick up trucks and motorcycles to directors of education and circuit supervisors at the Black Star Square.
Prior to the implementation of the Free SHS policy, a section of the populace people expressed scepticism with some describing it as undoable.
The uncertainty, however, didn’t stop the administration from rolling out the policy in its first year of assuming office.
He said this Thursday, at a ceremony to officially hand over 100 buses to SHS in the northern sector of the country.
Speaking at the same event, vice president Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said, the busses are to manage administrative challenges heads of various schools are grappling with.
