Nigeria’s Former Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Thanks Ghana For Implementing Double Track System


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has bet his entire presidency on his most endearing campaign promise – the Free SHS.

The success or failure of this policy will undoubtedly play a major role in the next general elections.

Knowing this, Nana Addo’s government is making damn sure that this policy is a success.

As a means of making sure that everybody who passed the BECE exams this year is able to go to senior high school under the free SHS policy, the government is working on implementing a double track system.

The double track system poses that the school population is divided into two tracks. While Track A is in full-time school, Track B will be on vacation – vice versa.

Though some civil society organizations have come out to speak against the double track system, others are also in support of government’s means of making sure that all qualified students are admitted into SHS.

Apparently, the first person to have suggested the Double Track system is a Nigerian called Chukwuka Okonjo – the father of Nigeria’s  former Finance Minister – Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

Ngozi, who was once amongst the first females to be named the head of the International Monetary Fund, shared her joy about Akufo-Addo’s government implementing her father’s ideas on Twitter.

Apparently, her father first suggested the Double Track idea to the PNDC Government which was led by JJ Rawlings in the 1980s.


This is a full circle our education system has experienced.
