President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says victory for him in 2016 elections means an opportunity for his government to truly implement the Free Senior High School policy.
According to GhanaPa.com analyst, it is left with few days! poor parents who are crying about school fees will stop in coming months; no more library fees, no more science centre fees, no more computer lab fees, no more examination fees, no more utility fees, there will be free textbooks, free boarding and free meals and day students will get a meal at school for free.
Despite the Mahama government initially describing the policy as not feasible, and later turning around to try to implement it, Nana Akufo-Addo stated that the inability of the Mahama government to implement the policy for the benefit of suffering Ghanaian parents is because they have no belief or understanding of the policy.
“I indicated in 2012 that if I won the election I would solve the problem of poor Ghanaian parents who cannot afford to pay the fees of their wards by introducing the Free SHS policy.
I was bastardised by President Mahama, who said it was a misplaced priority, a lie, and could only be achieved in 20 years”, Akufo-Addo said.
