National Democratic Congress (NDC), the opposition party, has hinted its next government administration will make tertiary education free for Ghanaian students. This was observed by a reporter in Frichy News.
The report indicates that the aforementioned agender was disclosed by the party’s communications member in the Ashanti Region, Onasis Rosely Kobby.
Talking on Hello FM, he said the next John Dramani Mahama administration will ensure that students do not pay fees at university level.
Onasis Rosely Kobby said this while delivering his good luck message to this year’s batch of WASSCE candidates and hinted that the free tertiary education promise will be in the NDC’s upcoming manifesto.
“I want to use this opportunity to encourage all the WASSCE candidates, I send God’s blessings upon them,” he said.
He additionally said; “they need to pass so they can vote for John Mahama in order for them to attend university for free, as Mahama has promised.”
Asked by the host if the NDC has promised to make tertiary education free, he replied: “Don’t worry, our manifesto will be out.”
It will be recalled that last year, John Dramani Mahama promised to make Technical and Vocational Training free of charge just as Senior High School is free across the country.
It is, however, not yet known if the opposition NDC will make free tertiary education a campaign promise when it releases its manifesto.
