The National Democratic Congress has promised to absorb all fees for SHS students who will be going to tertiary institutions in the 2020/2021 academic year.
This is contained in a statement signed by the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo and dubbed “FA NINYINAA” to wit, absorb it all.
“The National Democratic Congress (NDC), announces that it has accepted for incorporation in the Peoples’ Manifesto, the recommendation of the Education Policy Group of the party that the next NDC government absorbs the FULL school fees of Ghanaian students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in the 2020/2021 academic year,” it said.
According to the statement, the policy is an enhancement of NDC’s commitment in the People’s Manifesto to absorb 50% of the school fees of all tertiary students for the 2020/2021 academic year through the “KYEMUPE” policy, which will now apply to only continuing students in tertiary institutions in the country.
The statement said the Flagbearer of the Party, H.E John Dramani Mahama will in due course, throw more light on this enhanced package for Ghanaian students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions next year.
This comes at a time when the sitting NPP government has publicized their intentions to make what they call “THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT” later today.
