The Progressive People’s Party, has expressed concern about the insulting language and disparaging comments about the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo.
“No one interested in the future of our nation should encourage such un-Ghanaian like behaviour, in our Ghanaian tradition.
“We respect the elderly most especially where such elders are in positions of leadership”, the party said.
This was contained in a statement signed by the party’s Director of Communications, Felix E. Mantey, on acts of vandalism in campuses of some Senior High Schools.
The statement said “the recent behaviour of our youth in schools could be the result of the falling standards of education in the country”.
It added that we should understand the Free SHS is not a replacement for quality education where students are expected to learn social virtues that borders on morality and courtesies”.
The statement gave the assurance that the PPP will provide quality education to every Ghanaian child when it wins power in the December 7, 2020 elections.
“We will standardise school facilities from kindergarten to senior high schools with libraries, toilets, classrooms, kitchen and housing for teachers and playgrounds to facilitate teaching and learning.
“We will ensure free and compulsory education in public schools from kindergarten to senior high school including computer training, vocational and technical training”, it added.
The statement concluded that it will also ensure a more comprehensive sports programme to instil discipline and promote better health for students.
