The suspension comes after a video captured the Deputy National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Akamba, inciting students of Tempane SHS against the free SHS policy.

Akamaba was heard telling students of Tempane Senior High School in the Upper East Region that president Nana Akufo-Addo and the government must be blamed for bed bug attacks in their school.

He was also heard complaining about the congestion in the school, while the students express their frustration.

However, Mahama addressing delegates of the National Democratic Congress in Garu in the Upper East region said the suspension of the headmaster of Tempane SHS does not change the appalling conditions in which students find themselves.

He said "The point is, if we want, all of us can go to those schools, and come and arrest all NDC members. I can go to a school, come and arrest me. Do something about the condition in the schools and stop intimidating headmasters and inviting political opponents for investigation."
