Former National Democratic Congress [NDC] Central Regional Minister, Aquinas Tawiah Quansah has clearly stated that all incomes generated in Ghana will be geared towards only funding the Free SHS policy.

“If care is not taken, all incomes generated in this country will be for no other motive than to fund President Akufo-Addo’s Free SHS initiative, leaving other developmental projects unattended to. This means no roads, clinics, police stations, schools e.t.c. will again be constructed,” he stated.

He made these comments on Kasapa FM’s ‘Anopa Kasapa’ political programme when discussing the MP for Efutu, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin's recent suggestion that the Akufo-Addo administration will soon introduce a new system of taxation to sustain its free SHS policy.

According to him, the specific tax is geared towards ensuring that there is quality education in the country.

“If Ghanaians are paying tax to sustain free SHS, it won’t be farfetched. It will help all of us. There’s a difference between nuisance tax and specific tax for specific purpose that we all know that these are the benefits. Do you think Ghanaians will oppose a free SHS tax where we will set up an implementation Committee to oversee to the transparent disbursement of these funds?” Afenyo-Markin indicated.

But the former Central Regional Minister disagreed.

“I don’t see why government would now want to extract monies from us in an indirect way to fulfill its campaign promise, when he has the rights to make citizens know the actual state of our economy . . . ” Tawiah Quansah stated.

I think the Free SHS is causing so much trouble for the NDC that when they get the least opportunity they will abolished it, even no law will prevent them from doing so except by not giving them the chance to do so, I do not need to tell you what we must do or not do

He is a Uuless, Low IQ, ***barred word***. As he called Shatta 1. I worked with him at the RCC-Central Region. All of the appointed MMDCE's at Central Region under NDC during Acquinas era were ***barred word***, Low IQ, No Wisdom. When they brought the Street Naming and Public Address System, That was when I really realized I was working with a STUUUPIID Regional Minister and MMDCE's appointed by Bernard Allotey Jacobs. No doubt they lost most of their seats in parliament.

It is unwise for NDC to be criticizing the free SHS policy. IT IS POLITICAL SUICIDE. THEY WILL STAY IN OPPOSITION AS LONG AS THEY KEEP CRITICIZING THIS PRO-POOR INITIATIVE
