I must use this opportunity to congratulate His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah AKufo Addo whom I called the Redeemer for the massive implementation of free SHS.
Indeed, a good education is one of the most important things an individual can pursue. There are many aspects of life that a complete education will affect a person. Having a high education meaning a well-paying job, better opportunities and a better life.
However, last semester thus, end of the first-semester examination for 2018/2019 academic year in university of education Winneba Mampong Campus a huge number of students were prevented to site for their end of semester exams because they were unable to satisfy their financial obligations.
In fact, this unexpected development has tremendously affected the victims psychologically. It is very sad that after passing through a series of learning difficulties in preparation towards exams and you would be prevented not to take part.
It is undeniable fact that education was meant for rich and influential people only but thank GOD we have a president whose interest is to allow every Ghanaians to have access to quality education nationwide irrespective of your geographical location.
Extension of free education to tertiary would continue to help Ghanaians to eradicate sacking of students who do not have money to pay their fees particularly those who are less privileged and financially barren
to also have access to tertiary education. One of the major issues that separate wealthy people from the poor is education. That is why His Excellency the ‘Redeemer’ is doing everything possible to help Ghanaians to get access to free education.
Therefore, I am pleading with Ghanaians to maintain NPP in power so that free education can be extended to tertiary educations
We should have the right to enjoy the benefit of learning how to solve problems that in the future could help our country. I believe that education should be free to the tertiary level.
Anyone who is against this heaven on earth policy is an enemy to our beloved country Ghana.
