Host of Good Evening Ghana (GEG) on Metro TV, Paul Adom Otchere, has touted the double-tracked system associated with the free senior high school policy as a lifesaver.
Speaking on his show, Paul Adom Otchere was analyzing some interviews granted by the running mate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang; where she stated that the NDC should not be judged based on their response of the free SHS in their old manifestos of 2012 and 2016 to their current ‘People’s Manifesto’ of 2020.
In reaction, Adom-Otchere noted that the NDC is still made up of the old members in 2016, quizzing whose standards should they be judged on.
He noted that the NDC’s argument on the double track system is flawed because it is a good initiative and the best for the country.
He stated, “as the car moves, people will be getting down on the way and spaces will be provided. When the bus is [departing] from Madina and it is raining heavily and there are people outside who are qualified because they are Ghanaians…should the driver say let’s ride comfortably and another bus will come for them two hours later?…now the socialist party says that this is wrong and the right approach is to wait and let’s build infrastructure for a third world country, really?”
