The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, NDC, Koku Anyidoho has called for the head of the Minister of Education Mathew Opoku Prempeh over what he described as a bad implementation of government free SHS policy, leading to the outbreak of meningitis in some schools which has claimed the lives of some students.
Koku Anyidoho said a serious government will by now sack him over the poor implementation of the flagship program.
“I think he has not done enough and every serious government should by now have done away with him…the arrogance is too much, he should be sacked immediately.”
There have been reported deaths due to the outbreak of meningitis in some Senior High Schools in the country.
Damango SHS, Bawku and Koforidua Secondary were among the schools that recorded the deaths.
In a radio interview, Koku Anyidoho advised parents of students who have died from the meningitis outbreak to go and deposit the dead bodies at the doorstep of the Education Minister.
According to him, the dead bodies must be deposited at Matthew Opoku Prempeh’s house to indicate the dissatisfaction of parents with the implementation of the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme.
“The parents of the dead children must carry the coffins containing the dead students and deposit them at Napo’s doorstep, they should go and hand the dead body to him and demand that he produces their children for them,” Koku Anyidoho said.
