A former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister under erstwhile John Dramani Mahama’s administration Joseph Yammin has questioned the University of Cape Coast(UCC) for honouring President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo with a doctorate for implementing the free Senior High School policy which has woefully failed.
The University of Cape Coast last weekend conferred an honorary Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership degree, on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at a special congregation held in his honour at the University.
The recognition is a result of the President’s policies in the country’s educational sector, particularly the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.
Joseph Yammin speaking in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo monitored by MyNewsGh.com after addressing students of Simon Diedong Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies (SDD-UBIDS) said “I don’t have a problem that President Akufo-Addo has been awarded by UCC but the embarrassment is becoming one too many because Nana Addo doesn’t deserve the award conferred on him”.
According to Joseph Yammin, Free SHS policy implemented by Nana Addo’s government has turned into a disaster in this country due to poor management.
“If UCC is awarding President Akufo-Addo on Free SHS which is a failure, then I think the president doesn’t deserve a doctorate from only UCC because Free SHS is not the only failed policy under President Akufo-Addo” Yammin said.
“I think that KNUST should prepare and also confer a doctorate degree in collapsed of banks in the country. University of Ghana should also confer on the president another doctorate degree in the area of massive corruption then University of Mines and Energy should also prepare in honouring the president with a doctorate degree in burning of excavators” Yammin added.
“Today students go school for 39 days and stay home for 90 days which means the policy has failed but UCC failed to do their own assessment before honouring the President”. He bemoaned.
