NDC Member of Parliament for Amenfi Central, Joseph Ackah, says the party would offer free tertiary education as a policy in 2020 if that’s what it takes to win the election.
According to the MP, despite the infrastructural improvements made by his party whilst in power, Ghanaians rejected them in favour of those promising free stuff therefore they would also learn from it.
The NPP’s promised Free SHS policy is believed to have played a large role in convincing Ghanaians to change the government and Ackah says that shows Ghanaians are unable to grasp policies that would make the nation better in the long run but are rather fixated on the idea of free something.
Therefore, he said on Asempa Fm, they would counter in 2020 by offering their own free tertiary education program.
“Next time (2020), we would start with the promise of a free University Education….because Ghanaians did not appreciate the level of infrastructural development that John Mahama’s government embarked on.” he said.
“The NDC expanded the Ridge hospital, built CHPS compounds, I even built five in my constituency, but no one appreciated it so we would all be promising free things…,”
