The Director of Communications for the party, Yaw Buabeng Asamoa at a news conference in Accra monitored by Tertiary Ghana said policies and programs introduced by the NPP have prioritized teachers at all levels.
The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) says teachers in the country are better off under the Akufo-Addo administration than they were under the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) regime.
The Director of Communications for the party, Yaw Buabeng Asamoa at a news conference in Accra, said policies and programs introduced by the NPP have prioritized teachers at all levels.
Mr. Asamoa indicated that the conditions of service of teachers had seen significant improvement given the number of allowances being provided to enhance and learning outcomes.
Touching on the introduction of the double-track system by the government, Yaw Buaben Asamoa said the policy has proven to be effective adding that any attempt by the opposition party to abolish the system is borne out of desperation to win power and destroy the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.
“Any promise by National Democratic Congress (NDC) leadership to abolish double track in seven months is unrealistic and desperate. It is obvious that the NDC does not understand the double-track system, and have no real commitment to Free SHS. Some students dropped out of SHS due to financial reasons. Free SHS has therefore come as a major boost to parents, students and the nation” he said.
