National Organizer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has rubbished the promise by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to pay the full fees for first-year tertiary students in 2021.

He said the NDC has no credibility in implementing such a policy.

The NDC had earlier promised in its Manifesto to pay half of the fees for tertiary students in the 2020/2021 academic year, under a policy dubbed “KYEMPE”, to wit, cut it into two equal halves.

But earlier today, the NDC issued a statement announcing an amendment to their promise under a new slogan, “FA NINYINAA” to wit, absorb it all, promising to pay full fees for first years students and just half for continuing students.

To this, the NPP National Organizer, Sammy Awuku NDC is only showing signs of desperation and defeat in the upcoming polls.

“Let’s cut the joke. There is this Akan saying that if someone who has nothing promises you the world, you have to be careful of the person. It was this same person who cancelled the teacher training and nursing training allowances when he was President,” he said.

“If he could not pay these allowances for a few people, how will he be able to absorb the fees of these students? It is clear that they have no blueprint or policy document on how to roll this out,” he added.

Meanwhile, the NDC’s promise to pay full fees for fresh tertiary students came after the NPP had put out an ad, that they were going to announce a big package for the recently graduated Free SHS students who will be entering tertiary institutions next year.

Sammy Awuku is confident of NPP’s victory in spite of the NDC’s last minute moves, saying “The President has so far been well-received in the communities he has entered. We want him to do more of the community and constituency engagements.”

He also assured the public that the president’s campaign team will ensure strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols while on their community engagements to prevent a spike in cases.
