The Vice-President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia following a fixthecountry campaign by some Ghanaians particularly the NDC, has outlined some problems that have been solved in the education sector.
posted on social media, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia said President Nana Akufo-Addo in his second term government is committed to fixing problems even though it’s just four months in his four-year term of office.
He however attributed the high cost of living in the country to the outbreak of the global pandemic saying “covid-19 has slowed down the global economy and caused increases in prices of commodities such as cement”

1. The government solved graduate unemployment by introducing the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) to employ 100,000 graduates.
2. The NPP government absorbed registration fees of candidates who had difficulty in paying their BECE and WASSCE fees.
3. Akufo-Addo restored the canceled teacher and nursing trainee allowance by the immediate past John Mahama-led NDC government.
