Don’t buy their lies, Free SHS ‘review’ means ‘improve’- Mahama

Former President John Drmani Mahama has brought clarity to his promise to review the flagship free Senior High School (SHS) policy being implemented by the Akufo-Addo-led government. 

“Review is to improve; we are coming to improve the implementation and not to cancel free SHS,” he stressed.

He added that the policy is struggling because the government failed to assemble experts and stakeholders for a national conference on education to deliberate on the policy. 

Mr. Mahama said the first thing they will do is to abolish the double-track and complete the uncompleted school buildings to accommodate more students. 

Mr. Mahama made the comment in his address to the nation on Facebook Monday.

The former President’s review of the free SHS has been reportedly misconstrued to mean cancellation of the policy should he be voted back to power.

But, the former President said such comments by the NPP are part of vile propaganda.
