According to Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ofosu Ampofo, 15 girls under the double track system in the Ashanti Region have been sacked from school because they became pregnant. He attributed this to the double track system.
Addressing NDC faifthfuls at the party headquarters Monday, Ofosu Ampofo said the social cost of the government’s Free SHS and its impact on the future of the youth in the country is incalculable.
“From only one school in the Ashanti Region, in one term 15 girls have been sacked as a result of teenage pregnancy,” he said, alleging that in that unnamed school government put “young girls and young men in hostels without supervision.”
Mr Ampofo said the government thinks only of themselves and have left E Blocks built by the NDC government at the mercy of the weather.
“Later on, we will review to you the social cost of this program that they [the government] are doing, we will do the research and give Ghanaians an indication of the dangers that new traffic light system is posing to the future of our children,” Mr Ampofo stated.
Mr Ampofo advised the NDC supporters to unite after the primaries and support the flagbearer to victory in 2020.
“My brothers and sisters as we move to 2020 don’t let us use this presidential primaries to drive each other down,” he admonished.
