The Best is right here with Nana’s Free and Qualitative Senior High School Education Policy (A)

In Numbers (4th Book of Moses) Chapter 13, the Lord directed Moses to send men to spy out the Land of Canaan, and find out whether those who inhabited the land were strong, weak, few or many, whether the cities they inhabited were like camps or strongholds and whether the land was rich or poor.

They returned and gave their report to Moses. They indeed acknowledged the fact that the land was flowing with milk and honey. “Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there.

“Then Caleb quieted the ...view middle of the document...

The Holy Bible also encourages us with the exhortation that “All things are possible to them that believe”.

Nana Addo’s Free Senior High School Education Policy: This is the most radical and revolutionary campaign policy ever made by any charismatic and pragmatic politician since the return to party politics after the overthrow of Ghana’s First President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah. The mantra of free education is gathering momentum and come September, 2013, all other things being equal, parents would no longer mortgage their cocoa farms and other properties to get money to send their children to Senior High Schools.

A little digression: A little over two years ago, I visited my holy village. In a chat with one of my uncles, he made a certain revelation. He said his daughter had gained admission to Senior High School and had been asked to cough out nearly Four Hundred Ghana Cedis. Where was he going to get that kind of money? He asked no one in particular. “As God would have it, my daughter got pregnant” and that gave him a leeway to escape responsibility for the daughter’s education. Divine intervention, one might say, which is similar to former President Mills’ death which opened a door of opportunity to John Dramani Mahama to become unelected President of Ghana and which according to Anita de Souza, NDC Women’s Organizer, if former President Mills had not died as at the time he died, it would have dimmed the chances of the NDC from winning power in the December, 2012 General Elections.

The Best id Right here: This year’s Election is unlike previous ones. The best is right here with the NPP’s Campaign Policy to implement Free and Qualitative Education at Senior Secondary School Level. The mantra of Free Education is gathering momentum and everywhere one goes, the message is simple and clear. “We want Free Education”.

The Nefarious Destructive Cancer is acting as kill-joy: This visionless bunch of nation wreckers led by notorious Yaw Boateng Gyan does not have any message for Ghanaians. In their hurried attempts to cover their deficiencies, they have forgotten one most cardinal principle in life, which states that “if you can’t beat them, you join them”. But no, not these vampires and looters of our collective till! They would rather put land mines and spooks on the progressive forward march journey of their political opponents. They are acting like the spies sent out by Moses to go and spy the land of Canaan. The matter was resolved when God came in and sided with Caleb. Nana Addo here is playing the role of Caleb and as it was in the beginning, so will it be at the end.

The Nefarious Destructive Cancer, going by the real sense of the name nefarious is acting its real name. The party is telling Ghanaians that Nana’s Free Education for Senior High School Students is a ruse which is calculated to hoodwink the public into believing in the genuineness of the policy. When that failed to sink in, they resorted to the incongruous verdict that...
