I Will Deliver One-Student One-Classroom Akua Donkor

As general elections in Ghana draw near, the various parties are hammering home the vital messages in their manifestos. The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is drumming home, among other things, free education for Senior High School students and the provision of infrastructure with the view to getting rid of schools under trees. The PPP is also of the same opinion.

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) plans to continue the good works of the late Prof. J. E. A. Mills. The message of duty- free ports in Ghana by the presidential candidate of Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), one of the newest parties on the block, Madame Akua Donkor, goes deep into the hearts of Ghanaians but does she have any chance of winning?

Madam Akua Donkor has continuously been accusing the NPP and PPP of stealing her ideas of free, non-paying Senior High School education and she is planning to send the leaders of the parties to court. If it is true that she was the originator of that idea, it is the hope of many that NPP would as well “steal” all the good ideas she has, including duty-free ports.

It is unlikely that Madam Akua Donkor will ever win this year’s election since her party is a new one and her followers are not so many. If a bigger party could take over her ideas, I believe many will support that party.
