Ghanaian actor,farmer and politician John Dumelo has condemned members of the Majority group in Parliament(NPP MPs) for not supporting a proposal for government to absorb the fees of tertiary students.
In his words, it’s a shame that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP’s voted against the proposal.
The said proposal was made by the MP for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, who wanted government to absorb the fees in public tertiary institutions this year, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the proposal was shot down when it was put to a voice vote on Thursday, January 28, 2021.
John Dumelo took to his Twitter handle to react by saying he was disappointed with NPP MPs for not supporting the proposal.
“It’s a shame NPP MP’s voted against the suspension of tertiary fees.”
“COVID-19 has affected many businesses negatively hence the inability for families to afford fees for their wards. Students risk deferring this semester.”
