NPP called on government to delink politics from Ghana’s educational system


The Patriotic Active Youth Association, a youth group of the New Patriotic Party (PAYA) in Tamale has taken a swipe at the ruling National Democratic Congress for touting its unprecedented achievements, especially in education, health and other social intervention policies to deceive Ghanaians.
The youth are therefore asking the ruling NDC government to de-link politics from Ghana’s educational system. The youth says the NDC government’s handling of educational interventions like school feeding program, capitation grant and the metro mass ride for school children are at the verge of collapse and are affecting the enrolment in the rural schools.
Addressing a news conference in Tamale, the Secretary of PAYA, Inusah Nurudeen accused the NDC of using Non Formal Education Division (NFED) vehicles and motor bikes meant for supervisory duties for campaign activities. The practice according Mr. Nurudeen, defeats the purpose of NFED which was introduced by the erstwhile Kufour administration.
According to the Secretary, there is no single adult literacy class anywhere in the northern region, yet some people are still being paid.  Mr Nurudeen is also asking government to reinstate Arabic instructors under the voluntary service of the national service scheme and pay them their wages.  The wages he said were the source of livelihood for the Arabic instructors and described government action as wicked policy against Arabic instructors in the northern region.
Mr. Nurudeen challenged the propagandists of NDC to stop chanting on the one time premium National Health Insurance policy which they have failed to fulfill as their campaign promise. He said ’’ the victory of NDC in 2008 was a good thing”. “It has afforded Ghanaians the opportunity to examine NDC and NPP’s management of good governance and to see who the most prudent manager is”.
The secretary believes the paring of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Nana Akufo-Addo to lead the NPP will alleviate the economic hardships confronting the people and urged electorates to vote the NPP back to power in the forthcoming elections.
