The Leader of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) Reverend Dr Christian Kwabena Adu popularly called Osofo Kyiriabosom, has labelled the Akufo-Addo government’s educational flagship Free SHS Policy as ‘useless’.
According to Osofo Kyiriabosom, the government has ruined the educational system with the outline of the much touted Free SHS.
Speaking on Accra 100.5FM’s ‘Ayekoo, Ayekoo’ with Nana Romeo, the flagbearer of GUM, said the sections of the Free SHS where students run on shifts has not been helpful in any way.
Although a section of Ghanaians have praised the government for the Free SHS but others especially from the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have also kicked against the move.
Osofo Kyiriabosom said the students are not given enough lessons as they are supposed to due to the changes in the academic calendar and the limited time they spend in school.
Check out what he said below:
“Nana Addo’s Free SHS is useless, it has not helped the country in any way, the government has destroyed the educational system. Did Nana Addo (President) and the minister of education Mathew Opoku Prempeh think through before coming up with the Free SHS policy? How can you tell students to stay in school for three months and return home for another three months? Are you sick? The government must be kicked out because they are only interested in amassing wealth and not fight for the plight of Ghanaians, we cannot continue to eat their crumbs,” he said.
