His adulation for the President comes on the back of his ability to secure a $1.5billion facility to help develop infrastructure in schools across the country through the Ghana Education Trust Fund.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, flayed former President Mahama for being a talkative with misplaced priorities.
According to him, the educational system of Ghana was reduced to shambles under the leadership of former President Mahama. Accessibility to Senior High Schools under the former president according to him was limited.
Chairman Wontumi explained that due to this predicament, several talents were going to waste until President Akufo-Addo stepped in to revive our educational system.
“We once had a President in Mahama with misplaced priorities. Instead of focusing on providing quality education for the youth, he was into jams and throwing parties for his cronies. Governance was all about making money for him, he didn’t hold a clear vision for the development of Ghana”, Chairman Wontumi said.
In an address to a gathering during the 50th anniversary celebration of the Lawra Senior High School, President Akufo-Addo noted that “once parliamentary approval is obtained, the first tranche of this facility will be used to build more classroom blocks and dormitories in our schools to give our schools appropriate facilities to meet the demands of the 21st century,” the President said.
