Free SHS: NDC pretended the NPP was speaking Chinese - Kweku Baako
Veteran Journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has
called on critics of President Nana Akufo-Addo's
free SHS policy to redirect their energies and
support the initiative.

Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Kweku Baako
commended the President and his government for
their commitment to implement the policy.

In his attempt to silence the naysayers of the
project, Mr. Baako explained that the policy is
feasible because the money to be used to roll it
out has already been stated by the government.

Alluding to ruling NPP's Manifesto, Mr. Baako read
the government's readiness to take up the cost of
the project and provide access for all SHS
students in the country.

According to him, the current administration
indicated that it would use the oil revenues to
facilitate and implement the free SHS policy.

He therefore wondered why the opposition NDC would
cast doubts over government's ability to develop
the policy.

In his view, the opposition party has refused to
recognize the feasibility of the policy because
when President Akufo-Addo was detailing the nation
on how his government would implement the policy,
the NDC "pretended they were speaking Chinese. So
you didn’t hear, you didn’t see and you didn’t
feel, and that’s why they lost because the people
were listening. The people were sure. They were
listening. They were hearing figures. They were
hearing the projections. They were hearing the
visions and you were not or you were pretending
you were not. You didn’t hear anything and that’s
why you lost.”

Mr. Baako welcomed the President's declaration
that the policy would commence in September this
year stating it will enhance the progress of the
nation.

“You can have all the natural resources. (Kwami)
if you have a brainless and uneducated population,
forget it . . . The man (President Nana
Akufo-Addo) is only seeking to operationalize the
pledges he made in the course of the campaign. If
you go to their Manifesto, they’ve captured some
there,” he said.

He however believed there will be challenges as
the government rolls out the programme, saying "I
don’t expect a smooth sailing process. It’s never
been so anywhere, especially such a far reaching
policy and programme that will accompany this
policy. In rolling it out (Kwami), we will have
challenges" but advised the critics to their minds
and energies in ensuring "we will let this thing
succeed".
