Only Hypocrites Will Say Free SHS Is Not Social Intervention - Catholic Priest Fumes

The Priest in charge of Saint Mary's Parish in Asamankese in the Diocese of Koforidua, Reverend Father Paul Tordzro has expressed great anger at people who are against the free Senior High school policy in Ghana.

He said it is time for all Ghanaians and political party leaders to put politics aside and joins hands and support social intervention policies introduced by leaders of the Country and find solutions to its sustainability.

Speaking to the Asamankese congregation of the Catholic Church after the Municipal chief executive for West visit to inform them about the upcoming Referendum and Assembly election in December 17, 2019, Rev. Fr. Paul Tordzro lauded the government for introducing the free Senior High school policy.

According to the Catholic priest, the policy has relieved him financially because he was paying fees of most needy but brilliant students in his church from his pocket.

He said, "I was a Poultry farmer at Ofoase Parish and use to donate all my income to pay SHS fees of church members who come to me for support and normally spend more than my farming income".

"I know people who frequently speak against this free SHS Policy because they think the government is spending huge state money in it but the same people sons and daughters are enjoying the policy, what kind of hypocrisy is this? the priest fumed".

Reverend Father Paul Tordzro called on Ghanaians to pray for the County and leaders to plan for more social intervention policies for the citizens.
