The opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) has gone to the rescue of stranded parents and students at the Independence Square in Accra.

The party has presented some boxes of assorted drinks, bottled water and biscuits to stranded parents and students who have been trooping to the place since Monday September 8, 2019.

The National Organiser, George Opare Addo, who led the team told media men that the party is greatly concerned about the mess in the education sector cannot look on unconcerned.

According to him, the donation was the NDC’s small way of sympathising with those stranded at the Independence Square considering the fact that some of them have been there for over three days.

He revealed that all the hustles and trauma people are going through could have been avoided if government had listened to the wise counsel of the NDC.

Scores of parents and their children have been trooping to the Black Star Square to lodge complaints of challenges they are facing with the Computerised School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS)

Some of the complaints have to do with no placement of school, change of school due to distance from home and other personal reasons.

Other concerns relate to students’ inability to be placed in their prefered schools despite obtaining good grades.

On Monday, two female Junior High School (JHS) graduates collapsed at the Independence Square after long hours in the queue to change her Senior High School (SHS) school placement.
