Barely 6 days away from now, Ghana will be going to the polls and a lot of celebrities have directly and indirectly thrown their unfettered support for their political party of choice
Some celebrities like, Dancehall artiste , Samini, Rapper Sarkodie and others have publicly shown who they will be voting for in the forthcoming 2020 elections.
The most recent one is popular Actor Joseph Van Vicker, who has indirectly point his stand as long as the election is concerned, by commending the Free SHS policy of the ruling NPP.
On his Instagram post, Vicker writes :
“This is NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT.
My name is Van Vicker, an actor, a film maker, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a businessman, etc. and I want to call a spade a spade.
The FREE SHS program has enabled hundreds of thousands of Ghanaian youth to further their education.
It is not a perfect system (yet) but for the fact that an SHS student dropout can return to the classroom or for the fact that a JHS student can continue his/her secondary education for FREE is incredible.
I put a premium on education FOR ALL.
MY STORY
I would have enrolled at the university back in 1996 IF THE FREE SHS PROGRAM EXISTED, unfortunately it didn’t. My secondary education expenses depleted mama’s savings so I kissed my dream of being a gynecologist good bye. My narration today is not to say I regret my current profession but rather to unequivocally state that THE FREE SHS PROGRAM BENEFITS OUR YOUTH and only if it was implemented back in my day, my mother would have SAVED enough to eventually fund my tertiary education.
THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT. IT IS MY EMPIRICISM
Long Live Democracy
Long Live FREE SHS
Long Live 🇬🇭
