The National Youth Wing of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has condemned ex President John Mahama and Deputy National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Joshua Akamba for inciting students against the government’s Free SHS Policy.
According to the NPP Youth Wing, Mr Mahama and Joshua Akamba have been seen in viral videos making highly partisan political statements which seek to ridicule the Free SHS program and court disaffection for government.
A statement signed by the National Youth Organizer of the NPP, Henry Nana Boakye aka Nana B, said “this irresponsible, repulsive, reckless and unpatriotic act clearly flies in the face of the Ghana Education Service regulations that forbid active partisan politics on the campuses of Pre-Tertiary Education Schools.
“The NPP National Youth Wing, therefore, unreservedly condemns the unfortunate conduct of Messrs Mahama and Akamba and call on all well meaning Ghanaians to also speak against the vicious ploy by the NDC and its assigns to scuttle the Free SHS Policy.
The statement further added “the Ghana Education Service must as a matter of urgency launch a full scale investigation into this matter and give the appropriate sanctions to the authorities of the school who allowed this unfortunate incident to take place.
