“I am daring anybody to show me one evidence that we said that free SHS is not possible” – Sam George Speaks Again

It was a rather interesting discussion this morning, Thursday, June 24, 2021 when Richard Asante, a communicator for the ruling NPP and Sam George, MP for Ningo Prampram joined Berla Mundi on TV3’s ‘New Day’ morning show. One of the intriguing topics related to the revelation by the Africa Education Watch that some WAEC papers were leaked to students and this led to many passes.

According to Sam George the ruling party sought to make sure that his Akufo-Addo kids passed successfully and so employed many strategies. He noted that investigations should be done to ascertain how the papers were leaked to these free SHS students. At that point Berla mentioned that the NDC had at many times said the free SHS was not a good move. This got Sam George fuming.

“Let us settle this now. I am daring anybody to show me one evidence that we said that free SHS is not possible. No one in the NDC said that we are against Free SHS Our problem was about the requisite number of teachers and infrastructure. Now the universities are full and we will have another double track there. When you roll out a policy you have to know the effects” Sam George said.

Prior to the 2016 elections there was much rhetoric about the decision of the NPP presidential candidate’s to announce a free SHS. Akufo-Addo’s political detractors had argued that Ghana was not ready for that. However, in the last election, John Mahama on many of his pre-election tours noted that he was not against free SHS as people were saying.
