Mensa Otabil, a private businessman and pastor who owns Central University College has in the past said there’s nothing like FREE SHS–and that Ghanaians should not stupidly believe education can ever be free.
According to Otabil, politicians have long deceived Ghanaians that they will provide free education, hiding the fact that it’s not really FREE–as the population pays for this via taxation.
The argument makes no deeper sense if analysed along the lines that with or without FREE SHS, Ghanaians will have to pay tax. The introduction of FREE SHS has not led to increase in tax to purposely fund the FREE SHS–therefore it’s FREE for Ghanaians and in fact, it’s.
By Mensa Otabil’s logic, is he telling us his sermons are not free–as he charges tithes and offerings during each service?
