Mahama Will Be Embarking On a "Suicide Mission" If . . . - Baako

Seasoned journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has issued a stern warning to former President John Mahama not to dare touch the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) free Senior High School (SHS) education policy.

According to him, Mr. Mahama will be embarking on a “suicide mission” should he decide to advance his decision to review the double-track policy, peradventure he is elected President of the Republic of Ghana in 2020.

Kweku Baako’s warning comes on the heels of recent statements by the former President promising to review the Akufo-Addo government's free SHS double-track policy if elected President in December 2020.

Ex-President Mahama told his party faithfuls at Cape Coast North constituency during a tour in the Central Region ahead of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Presidential primaries that the government’s free SHS policy is ill-timed.

"Our NPP friends, they don't listen to advice, they think they know everything . . . We just finished vacation. Children have been at home for nearly three months. It is time to go to school you say you have to stay at home for nearly 41 days and let your friends go. After 41 days, they will come home and sit down; it doesn’t make sense,” Mahama said, adding that when elected President for a second time, he would hold a national stakeholders conference where he would panel educationists to revise the policy.

But commenting on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo”, Kweku Baako told host Kwami Sefa Kayi that there will be utter “disorder under the heavens” should the former President succeed in his agenda.

If you abolish double track now, there will be disorder under the heavens. There will be disorder under the heavens; total chaos,” he stated categorically, further stressing that Mr. Mahama and the NDC are “potentially suicidal”.
