Pupils get free school uniforms

Goodies and promises

Politicians during heated campaign seasons promise so many goodies just to win favour with voters. Apart from distributing money, some politicians, including current presidents go to the extent of using taxpayers’ monies to purchase school uniforms and sandals and distribute to students.

Parents are also promised products like bicycles, phones, and even cars to influence their votes.

One of the ridiculous promises was the one made by Ghana’s presidential hopeful in the 2016 general election, Edward Mahama. He is reported to have said that school children will get free chicken thighs for lunch if he wins the poll.
