Former President John Dramani Mahama has asked Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia not to misrepresent his position on the free Senior High School (SHS) education policy in Ghana.
In a press statement issued Tuesday by Joyce Bawah Mogtari, Special Aide at the office of the former President, Mr Mahama admonished Dr Bawumia not to subject the free SHS to emotionally charged tribal discussions and sentiments.
“Mr Mahama has never been against free SHS;and nowhere has he ever said free SHS is a bad policy,” the statement said.
“Mr Mahama, just like all well-meaning Ghanaians, believes free SHS must be made better instead of the ad-hoc implementation we are witnessing under the Akufo-Addo administration.”
He has therefore advised Dr Bawumia to “remain civil, circumspect, sensitive and utter words befitting of his new position as Vice President.”
