The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says he is shocked at claims by former President John Mahama, that he introduced the free Senior High School in 2015.
According to Akufo Addo, John Mahama discredited him when he told Ghanaians he will implement the Free SHS back in 2016.
“I heard something yesterday that surprised me. The former President stated that my promise to start the free SHS policy was false and just a ploy to deceive Ghanaians. President Akufo-Addo stated that the record of the former President in the office is nothing to write home about, hence his defeat in 2016.
Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama told residents of the Upper East Region during his recent campaign tour that the current government poorly implemented the programme, which compelled them to adopt the double-track system and that he would abolish it when voted into power.
