“Not even Kwame Nkrumah achieved what we have done”, he said.
Speaking to journalists after handing over an AstroTurf pitch to his constituents in the Manhyia South Constituency, Dr. Opoku Prempeh said the Free SHS policy continues to yield more positive results every day.
“Free Education is a project in evolution. We have done well under the leadership of his Excellency the President. The third-year students of the Free SHS programme are in school. Generally, we haven’t heard anything, but when you live in Accra and Kumasi, you will think that things are falling apart. But when you go across the country, if we have been able to move the population to 800,000 to nearly 1.2 billion, 400,000 more students, ask yourself, if we still remained in the old dispensation, what would have happened to these students?”
The Minister added that “what we have achieved in the educational sector is unprecedented in the annals of the history of this country. Not even Kwame Nkrumah achieved what we have done”.
He wants Ghanaians to reward the good works of the NPP by retaining President Akufo-Addo in the 2020 elections.
