NDC stole our free tertiary education policy-LPF veep candidate
The Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) has accused the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) of stealing its free university education policy.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) communications member, Onasis R. Kobby in a recent interview said the party has captured in its manifesto that it will introduce free tertiary education.
The spokesperson hinted this while wishing the 2020 WASSCE candidates the best of luck as they sit for their examination.
“They need to pass so they can vote for John Mahama in order for them to attend university for free, as Mahama has promised.” the spokesperson hinted.
But vice-presidential candidate for the LPG, Mrs. Margret Obrien, speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said ”the NDC has stolen our free tertiary education policy. The NDC and NPP keep stealing our policies.”
Speaking recently at his endorsement as presidential candidate, Mr. Kofi Akpaloo said he will introduce free tertiary education when elected president.
According to the businessman, investing in the human resource of a nation is the best thing any government can do. He added that education fees at the universities are so exorbitant thus his government will absorb those fees when elected.
“In the world today, when properly harnessed and utilized, human resource is the most important resource than all other natural resources. We have failed as a country because we have refused to invest in our people.
“While on the other hand, countries like Hong Kong, Israel and a lot to mention with very limited resources have been able to make economic and scientific leads, this is my vision for Ghana, we will make university education free.
He also promised his government’s focus on adding value to the cocoa which is the leading export of Ghana and a source of the nation’s primary foreign exchange.
“My government will finance the world’s largest chocolate manufacturing company. It is my promise that after two years of my government, we will not export a single raw bean of cocoa out of this country. Its my promise to create 200,00 jobs in the cocoa industry,” he added.
