The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) intention to regain control of the affairs of this country seems to see no boundaries as the party has indicated its desire to implement a free tertiary education in its next government.
The policy which was earlier not included in its manifesto, has suddenly been added to the policies of the party 6days to the election.
The NDC in a statement signed by its National Chairman, has also promised to make Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) free in its 2020 manifesto.
The previous policy in the NDC’s manifesto, dubbed the Peoples’ manifesto was to absorb 50% of the school fees of all tertiary students for the 2020/2021 academic year.
This new move, which is supposed to absorbed 100% of the fees of the 2020/2021 student and 50% of continuing students, have left voters and most Ghanaians with the belief that the NDC is clutching on straws to win the election.
Read full press statements.
NEXT NDC GOVERNMENT TO INTRODUCE “FA NINYINAA” POLICY FOR GHANAIAN STUDENTS WHO WILL BE ADMITTED TO TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS NEXT YEAR.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC), announces that it has accepted for incorporation in the Peoples’ Manifesto, the recommendation of the Education Policy Group of the party that the next NDC government absorbs the FULL school fees of Ghanaian students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in the 2020/2021 academic year.
This policy is an enhancement of our commitment in the People’s Manifesto to absorb 50% of the school fees of all tertiary students for the 2020/2021 academic year through the “KYEMUPE” policy, which will now apply to only continuing students in tertiary institutions in the country.
The Flagbearer of the Party, H.E John Dramani Mahama will in due course, throw more light on this enhanced package for Ghanaian students who be admitted to tertiary institutions next year dubbed, “FA NINYINAA”.
