I won’t be like those dishonest people who come promising heaven – John Mahama

NDC Flagbearer Addresses Concerns During Town Hall Meeting in Tamale

, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (), has pledged to address the accommodation challenges faced by pre-tertiary in Ghana. Speaking at a Town Hall meeting in as part of his ‘Building the Ghana We Want Together Tour,' Mahama emphasized his commitment to providing practical solutions to the issues affecting the education sector.

Expressing concerns about the impact of inadequate amenities on teaching and learning, Mahama assured teachers that, unlike the current government, he would not make promises he couldn't fulfil. Referencing unmet pledges by the -Bawumia-led administration, including the construction of factories and dams in every district, Mahama emphasized the need for realistic commitments.

Acknowledging the economic challenges, Mahama highlighted the NDC's intention to provide accommodation support to pre-tertiary teachers as a form of motivation. He believes that this initiative will not only reduce unnecessary expenses for teachers but also inspire them to stay on campus, ultimately improving the quality of education.

Mr Mahama stated, “I cannot promise everybody I'm going to increase salary and all that. I won't be like those dishonest people who came to promise heaven. So we have taken note of the difficulties pre-tertiary teachers are going through, and I've suggested some of the solutions, and one is that we'll help with accommodation in schools so that more teachers can stay in school.”
