Former President John Dramani Mahama has denied ever saying anywhere that free senior school is impossible in Ghana.

According to the NDC flagbearer, he firmly believes in it and that was why during his administration he started with the progressive Free SHS with the aim of making it absolutely free after arrangements and classrooms, hostels have been built.

Speaking on Kumasi based Abusua FM he called on the media to expose him if he ever stated Free SHS was impossible.

“I have never said anywhere that Free SHS is bad and that is impossible to implement. I was the one that started the progressively free SHS so how can I say it is bad,” he said.

“That is why my government started building Community Day Senior High Schools across the country,” the NDC leader said, “we built some of the schools at Kwabenya, Adenta Frafraha, at Otuam in the Central Region, the hometown of the late President Professor.”

“I knew that when the Free SHS is rolled out at once, the schools would be overburdened like we are seeing now that is why my government started it gradually to absorb the fees of day students,” Mahama added and stressed, “I never said it would be impossible…the double track we are seeing today is what I wanted to prevent.”
