A National Nasara aspirant, Alhaji Ahmed Zaruk Nuhu has lauded the effort of the government to introduce flagship programmes to ameliorate the plight of the citizenry.

He explained that the free Senior High School (SHS), one-district-one-factory and one-village-one-dam policies would boost education, employment and agriculture which would increase access to education for the Ghanaian child, create employment and support farmers to increase productivity.

“It behoves on Ghanaians to support the president and his government to make the programmes work since access to education and food security had been the challenge for successive governments.

This was contained in a statement signed and issued in Accra.

“Let us appreciate policies and programmes of the government which will inure to the benefit of our nation, flagship programmes introduced by the government to boost the education and agriculture sectors should be supported to reduce dropout rate at the pre-tertiary level, reduce burden on parents and increase productivity.

“The president must be commended for the double track system to contain the huge intake of students which is another innovation to encourage parents to send their children to SHS”.

“Research has established that poverty has direct link with education in improving livelihoods and the free SHS, one-district-one-factory and one-village-one-dam programmes are long term measures to alleviate poverty”.

“The government has identified the challenges hence the ongoing mitigating efforts through infrastructure to ease overcrowding”.

“When free SHS was launched last year, a challenge was identified, that was overcrowding in some schools due to high patronage of the policy and there is the need for more infrastructures to be developed in our SHSs”.

“The zeal for tertiary education among the youth will be challenging and make them focus on climbing the education ladder and avoid becoming burden on parents and the nation”.

“Inability to afford fees should not be a reason for any parent to abandon SHS education, the rich can afford but the policy seeks to protect the poor and average Ghanaian who may not be able to pay fees and prevent their children from attending pre-tertiary education.

“This is an innovative challenge solving approach to create more employment for teaching and non-teaching staff and leverage parents,” the statement said.
