I’ll make tertiary education free if I win – Hassan Ayariga promises

Flagbearer of All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga has disclosed a possible rollout of a free tertiary education policy.

Mr. Ayariga made the promise at the first Akan Presidential Debate, organized by the Adom brands of the Multimedia Group Limited.

According to him, this is to complement the Akufo-Addo-led government’s ongoing Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

Hassan Ayariga noted that it will help SHS graduates, who for the lack of finance, wouldn’t be able to continue their education do so.

“If we start free education in the Senior High Schools and we stop there, it is going to be a disaster if they don’t get tertiary education to continue because you don’t have the money to pay and that will mean a mass drop out,” he said.

He further argued the current free SHS policy was not of quality, adding the next APC government will give it the boost it needs.

“Akufo-Addo’s policy is free and not quality but we don’t have to compromise on free and quality education,” he noted.
