The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has hit back at John Dramani Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over their plans to abolish the double-track system started by the ruling NPP government.
He argued that there’s no infrastructural development to support the abolishment of the double track to cater for the rest of the students.
“Of course with Free SHS, we had a problem. We had a problem because we did not have enough classrooms for the students and that’s why we implemented the double-track system so that some people will come at one time and others will come at another time,” he said in an interview with URA radio.
Continuing, he said: “But if you say you’re going to abolish the two services, which people will you ask to stay at home? When you haven’t built the classrooms.”
“So immediately you say you will abolish double track, you’re essentially abolishing Free SHS. Because whose children should stay at home and whose children should go?”, he queried.
