Free SHS achievable – Former UG Vice-Chancellor | Local News


A former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Professor Emeritus George Benneh, has stated that a free senior high school (SHS) education could be implemented in the country, provided it is backed by the needed commitment by leadership.

According to him, the most important resource for a nation’s economic development is human capital, adding, “I think that is what a free SHS policy seeks to achieve.”

3 September 2012 – It’s a TAKEOVER!


Earlier today, the Victory 2012 campaign took the Hope Tour to the Klottey Korle Constituency in Accra. The aim of this tour as repeated in the last few months is to restore hope to the people of Ghana. Nana Akufo-Addo’s position is that if we believe in ourselves and in Ghana, we can transform Ghana into a first world country. The message from the constituents in the Klottey Korle Constituency was simple: “We will vote for Nana for free education so that our children can go to school.” Oh they poured out in their numbers to meet the man who wished to change and move Ghana forward again.

Nana Addo in his speech to the people stated “I have been travelling around the country for the past two years and one thing that worries me is the high level of unemployment amongst our youth. We will expand the Ghanaian economy to help create more sustainable jobs for the youth and people of our country”. Find out more on how Nana Addo took over Accra.

Meanwhile, his running mate, the brilliant Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia commenced his tour in the Brong Ahafo Region, where he reiterated Nana Addo’s commitment to education. He stated at a community durbar: “we have pledged wholeheartedly to ensure that we make Secondary education free for all. Our determination to fulfill this promise is influenced by the fact that when SHS becomes free, it would ensure that access to education would be no longer determined by how wealthy one’s parents are.” Read more about what Bawumia said.

LET’S STOP AFARI DJAN AND THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION


In January 2001 we concluded, for the very first time in our history, the handing over of National Office from one political party to another through the ballot box. And we did it peacefully, to the admiration of the whole world.

In 2008, in a most fiercely contested election from which the victor emerged by some 40,000 votes out of more than 9million counted, in spite of more than 200,000 spoilt ballots, we again achieved this feat, without an insistence on a recount . This time, to such fulsome acclaim that the newly elected part African President of the United States of America, Barack Obama made our nation his first visit to his home continent.

In 2012, we suffered the challenge of the sudden death of our sitting President. Once again, Ghanaian democratic credentials and commitment to peace were eloquently displayed in the manner in which we handled the transition to a new President and the selection of a new Vice President.
