Mr. Paul Ofori-Amanfo a tutor at St Augustine's College has lauded President Akuffo Addo  and the new Patriotic Party for the implementation of the free Senior High School policy.

Mr. Ofori-Amanfo being an educationist made this known when he was underscoring some of the pivotal reasons to prioritize formal education in an exclusive interview when KkbPortal caught up with him on his birthday today, 14th October.

"Education creates endless opportunities and seals the lot and fortunes of people. I commend the NPP government therefore for the implementation of the free Shs policy because that opportunity will stimulate the drive to pursuing higher academic laurels in the beneficiaries and ultimately set them on the path of their future economic breakthroughs" he noted.

The industrious native of Berekum who teaches Chemistry at St. Augustine's College and currently pursuing a PhD in Science Education at University of Cape Coast used the motor of St. Augustine  "Omnia Vincit Labor, meaning "Perseverance conquers All"  as an assertion to admonish students and parents of all walks of life to endeavour and withstand all hurdles in pursuit of education because there is no success without struggle.

"People should not be deterred in their quest to pursuing education. There will be challenges but we should be resolute in our resolve. Parents and families should be ready to even pay a little or even give their all to top up on government spendings on the free Shs in order to reap the full benefits of government's efforts. They should not be discouraged should they be required to pay something more to support their ward's education. They should also be keen to monitor the progress of their wards"  the veteran journalist opined.

The former broadcaster at Chris FM, Shalom Radio, defunct Radio Valco, Class FM and ATL FM passionately called Anono "The Monkey in The Chair"    was asked if he had any intention to contest for the 2020 NPP parliamentary primaries as rumoured in town.

" Colleagues, former students and some elders have spoken to me about it . i welcome the call in good faith and I am humbled by the honour it places on me and I will be making public any plans in that regard when it will be most expedient to do so." he answered with a beaming smile as usual of him.
