The Progressive People’s Party has said that the 2020 general elections will not be won based on the successes chalked by the Free Senior High School policy.

According to the Party, the decision of Ghanaians to either vote for Akufo-Addo to continue his tenure or vote for a change will solely depend on how many jobs this government has been able to provide for Ghanaians.

Speaking to ABC News, Director of Communications for the Party, Paa Kow Ackon argued that there is no need for Ghanaians to sing praises of the Akufo-Addo administration for implementing something which has been stipulated in the 1992 Constitution.

“The 2020 elections is not going to be based on Free SHS. It is going to be about jobs. What good is it if the child is going to school for free and the parent is not working? Because if the parents are working they are able to take care of the child.

“We should have implemented this thing more than 20 years ago so if successive governments didn’t implement it and other person comes and is doing it, he’s not doing us any favour for us to say that because they are implementing it we should vote for them,” he said.

According to him, Ghanaians are confronted with so many challenges which Free SHS cannot provide solutions to and key among them is the issue of job loses under the current government.

“People think that Free SHS is the solution to our problems, as I sit here, what has free SHS done for me? How does it impact on me? he asked, adding “governance goes beyond just free SHS because if people are working, they are able to take care of their ward’s education.

Despite the praises many Ghanaians, including business owners and preachers have showered on the Akufo-Addo administration for this policy, the Paa Kow Ackon believes the government hasn’t “really done anything.”
