According to former president Mahama, there was very little engagement with stakeholders before the double track system policy was implemented by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, and so his first decision if elected as President in 2020 will be to end the policy.
The system is presently working in 400 Senior High Schools, as the NNP led administration aims to cater for greater enrolment under the free Senior High School programme
But the former president believes the system is not the best when it comes to teaching and learning.
He reechoed his intention to end the short-term double track system should he be voted as president in 2020.
“I will also work hard to abolish the double track system in the shortest possible time. We will do this by investing massively in the expansion of school infrastructure such as additional classroom blocks and dormitories and the completion of 200 Day schools popularly known as E-blocks that we started to enable our children attend school at the same time and have adequate contact hours with their teachers,” said when speaking to party factions at the Trade Fair Centre when he submitted his nomination forms at the party’s head office.
He further added that this year’s Christmas will be a dried up one for most Ghanaians because of the ruling New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) mismanagement of the country.
, the NPP administration has plunged the country into “excruciating economic difficulties”. He said
“…most Ghanaian families will go through the driest Christmas they have ever experienced in the history of Ghana,” he added.
