A Deputy Ranking Member on the Education Committee of Parliament, Dr. Clement Apaak, has dragged Richard Ahiagba, the Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to filth for claiming that the pledge by former President John Dramani Mahama to review free SHS in his first 100 days means to cancel
Dr. Apaak expressed disbelief at Richard Ahiagba’s interpretation of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate’s statements.
The NDC candidate had called for a stakeholder summit, involving various groups such as educationists, teachers, parents, students, and opinion leaders, to improve the Free Senior High School (SHS) system and enhance the quality of basic education.
Dr. Apaak emphasized that even if there were inaccuracies in the presidential candidate’s statements, Ahiagba’s interpretation would not change the fact that the candidate aimed to improve the free SHS policy.
“When a party makes a legendary liar [DMB] it’s flagbearer, the despicable disease of lying is bound to infect otherwise decent guys like Ahiagba. If not, how can a well lettered man say REVIEW means CANCEL? No rational Ghanaian believes this stale lie. JM WILL MAKE SHS BETTER.”
