The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced that it will introduce a policy dubbed "fa ninyinaa” if voted into power.
The policy will absorb in full the fees of all students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in 2021.
The NDC says this policy was a recommendation by the party’s Education Policy Group which has been accepted and incorporated into its 2020 election manifesto.
The party announced this in a statement on Monday, December 1, 2020.
The party in its manifesto, originally indicated that it will absorb 50% of the fees for 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,” the NDC said.
