George Opare Addo, National youth organizer of the opposition NDC , has in a chilling testimony commended president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his bold decision to implement the Free SHS policy.
The NPP has consistently since 2008 , promised to implement the Free SHS policy, but the NDC had waged relentless war against the policy, saying it was unsustainable and waste of resources.
In a short video circulating on social media, George Opare Addo, who served as MCE for Akuapim North under President John Dramani Mahama, could be heard extolling the importance and timely implementation of the policy .
He said “I commend the President for implementing the Free SHS policy. I was an MCE and it was a regular feature that parents would form long queues in my office, looking for assistance for their wards, so for the government to introduce Free SHS, I think it is a good thing”.
Checks by ABCLIVE have revealed that the interview on Asempa Fm, an Accra based local radio station, was conducted a few months ago.
Since the video went viral, hawks within the NDC have been livid since the testimony is a direct opposite of the narrative being chilurnwd out there by the NDC.
