My vision is to leverage the private sector and an enhanced credit system to expand educational infrastructure – Bawumia

The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said his vision is to leverage the private sector and an enhanced credit system to expand educational infrastructure.

He also said his administration, if elected this year as president, will support teaching and non-teaching staff to improve the quality of education and educational outcomes.

Dr Bawumia said these when he engaged with the National Executive of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS).

The engagement took place in Accra on Monday, April 22.

Dr Bawumia indicated after the meeting that the national executives of CHASS made some “excellent” contributions to improving the free Senior High School Policy and general aspects of education.

In a Facebook post after the meeting, he said “I used the opportunity to explain my vision of leveraging the private sector and an enhanced credit system to expand educational infrastructure and support teaching and non-teaching staff to improve the quality of education and educational outcomes.

“Under my proposal (which I mentioned during my February 7th speech at UPSA) the private sector will be encouraged to build infrastructure (such as dormitories, classrooms, etc.) which government will rent over a period of years and own it after a period of time. Government will also lease buses for schools. This new mode of financing will avoid huge initial government outlays (through the GETFUND) and delays in the completion of infrastructure projects in our senior high schools.”

“Like me,” he added “CHASS is excited about the prospects of this policy proposal as it will reduce the educational infrastructure deficit, improve maintenance, enhance the quality of education and at the same time improve the management of Government expenditure.

“I am grateful to the leadership of CHASS for the honest and fruitful discussions. It is possible!”
