Suspend Free SHS, Teacher Trainees Allowance, and Other Three Social Interventions - NPP MP

The Member of Parliament for Akim Swedru, Kennedy Nyarko Osei has suggested to the ruling government, National Patriotic Party (NPP) to suspend the role of Free SHS and other social interventions.

According to the Member of Parliament, Free SHS should be suspended together with other social interventions such as school feeding programs, planting for food and jobs, Nation Builders Corps programs (NABCO), and also the payment of teacher trainees and nursing trainee allowances.

The Facebook post made by the MP who doubles as the chairperson of the Roads and Transport Committee stated that monies spent by the government to cater for such interventions would have been used for equally productive sectors to revamp the ailing economy.

“If I was to advise the government in taking some drastic measures like I will recommend for the following social intervention programs to be suspended immediately and all monies pumped in other productive sectors of the economy and let’s see what the impact will be.

  1. suspend the Free Senior High School
  2. suspend the School feeding program
  3. Suspend the teacher and nursing trainees’ allowances
  4. suspend the Planting for Food and Jobs
  5. suspend Nation Builders Corps (NABCO)

“Since most Ghanaians are not appreciating the above interventions and are complaining about hardships, it will be very prudent for the government to put those monies into other productive areas of the economy. We can save about 5 – 6 billion if we decide to take the above actions and channel all these monies into other sectors of the economy “.

“Government can decide use half this amount to support the youth and the other half to support existing agro-processing and domestic products manufacturing industries for the next 3 years and let’s see the results.
