NDC to absorb all Fees

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced that if elected into office, the school fees of Ghanaian students who will be admitted to tertiary institutions in the 2020/2021 academic year will be absorbed fully.

A statement signed by the Party’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo on 1 December 2020 indicated that the “Fa Ninyinaa” policy was accepted for incorporation in the People’s Manifesto based on the recommendation of the NDC’s Education Policy Group.

The statement noted that the “Fa Ninyinaa” policy is an addition to the “Kyemupe” policy cited in the People’s Manifesto which guaranteed the absorption of half of the school fees of all tertiary students.

According to the statement, the “Kyemupe” policy will only apply to continuing students of tertiary institutions.
