Contrarily to the Majority Leader’s assertion that the Minority is not ready and committed to the Free SHS Bill, the Minority Leader Atto Forson said the National Democratic Congress and for that matter the Minority will support the Bill.

Clarifying their position on the bill, he said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority caucus would support the Free Senior High School (SHS) Bill that seeks to improve the quality of education and fix the lapses identified in its implementation.

According to him, it should be on record that the Minority has not said anywhere that the NDC is opposed to the Free SHS policy as the Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin has said; rather, “we have the government of the day and the Majority side not presented to the House the said Bill”, he clarifies on the floor of the House on Wednesday, June 26, 2024.

Again, the matter has found itself repeated on a number of NPP related media houses that have run for some time now. “All we see is desperation on the part of the ruling government to create disaffection for the Minority MPs.”

“How long will the Bill take from Flagstaff House to the House; weeks, months, seven years, if it’s coming from the Ministry of Education, it is even closer”

The Minority Leader challenged the Majority side to come with the Bill to the floor within one week or tomorrow so that they can see the content of the Bill.
