The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), led by John Dramani Mahama has promised to fully absorb all admission fees for new students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in 2020/2021, and pay 50% of fees of continuing students if they win power in the upcoming general elections.
The policy which is dubbed “FA NINYINAA” is an upgrade promise to half the fees of continuing students in the next academic year.
A statement from the party said “The National Democratic Congress (NDC), announces that it has accepted for incorporation in the Peoples’ Manifesto, the recommendation of the Education Policy Group of the party that the next NDC government absorbs the FULL school fees of Ghanaian students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in the 2020/2021 academic year.
“This policy is an enhancement of our commitment in the People’s Manifesto to absorb 50% of the school fees of all tertiary students for the 2020/2021 academic year through the “KYEMUPE” policy, which will now apply to only continuing students in tertiary institutions in the country.”
