According to the John Mahama, the current government, NPP poorly implemented the Free SHS programme, which compelled them to adopt the double-track system.
Speaking at Tuobong, a community in the Tempane District of the Upper East Region, the NDC aspirant promised to abolish it when voted into power.
Below is what he said;
“We started the programme and the NPP came and continued it. Unfortunately the implementation has been very poor, and so it ended us in double track. I assure you my country men, that within one year, I will cancel the double track”.
Mr. Mahama is on a three-day campaign tour of the Region to amass votes in the December 7 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
He further added that when voted back into government, “All the Community Day Schools we were building, 200 of them, we are going to finish them so that all the children can get schools to attend.
“With the Community Day Schools we are building, we are going to add dormitory blocks for girls and boys so that those who don’t come from the community where the school is sited, if they choose that school and they are posted there, they will be able to get a decent place to live and learn.”
