Free Senior High School: Apaak enlightens Adutwum on the definition of review

Dr. Clement Apaak, the deputy ranking member of Parliament’s Education Committee, has taught the Education Minister, Yaw Adutwum, about the notion of review.

This reaction is in response to a statement from the education minister and communicators from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) claiming that the National Democratic Congress’s request for a review of the Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy suggests a desire to terminate the scheme.

Dr. Osei Yaw Adutwum declared recently at the 63rd anniversary of the Ghana Muslim Mission in Kumasi that any effort to cancel will be fought since the strategy has been effective.

“President Akufo-Addo and his Vice brought Free SHS and they have provided the needed support to make it a success and bring relief to parents.

“If anyone says they will review Free SHS it means one thing. That person wants to cancel it and we won’t allow that,” he stated.

In reaction to the Minister’s comments, the Builsa South MP highlighted that evaluation did not imply cancelation.

“It’s only PhD holders in NPP who define REVIEW as meaning CANCEL. We ought to question how they obtained their doctoral degrees and must consider petitioning the institutions that awarded them doctoral degrees.

“For the avoidance of doubt, REVIEW means a formal assessment of something with the intention of instituting change if necessary. On the other hand, CANCEL is to decide that an organised event will not happen, or to stop services that you no longer want,” Dr. Apaak stated.

He continued: “How could persons purporting to have earned the highest degree, PhD, say REVIEW means CANCEL? Ghanaians have no appetite for lies this year.”
