National Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has labeled as a scam the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) promise to absorb the fees for all fresh tertiary students.
According to Sammi Awuku, the NDC lacks policy credibility and is only making the promise as a last-minute effort to deceive the electorates.
In a press release issued on Monday, the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo said the policy will cater for the tuition fees for all tertiary students in the next academic year.
“Let’s cut the joke. There is this Akan saying that if someone who has nothing promises you the world, you have to be careful of the person. It was this same person who cancelled the teacher training and nursing training allowances when he was President.”
According to them, the policy is an enhancement of their commitment in the People’s Manifesto to absorb 50% of the school fees of all tertiary students through the “KYEMUPE” policy.
