It’s just six days to Ghana’s 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections and the latest promise by the biggest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), is that they are starting Free Tertiary Education if they win power.
The party made the above promise in a press statement signed by its National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
“NEXT NDC GOVERNMENT TO INTRODUCE “FA NINYINAA” POLICY FOR GHANAIAN STUDENTS WHO WILL BE ADMITTED TO TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS NEXT YEAR.
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.
This policy is an enhancement of our 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 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 dubbed, “FA NINYINAA”.
DATED THIS 1ST DAY OF DECEMBER, 2020
