President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has hinted plans by government to enact a law to protect its flagship free Senior High School (SHS) policy.
According to him, the law will prevent any future review of the programme in the event that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) loses the presidential elections in the future.
He noted that, they are going to pass a legislation to make access to SHS compulsory for every school going child.
“We have worked very hard against all odds over the last 22 months to broaden access for Ghanaian children to a minimum of Senior High School education. Investing in our children and therefore in the future of our country is the most appropriate investment every government can make and we are fully committed to continuing on this path” he stated.
President Akufo-Addo added that, government will also enact legislation to make free SHS compulsory for every school going child.
“This is to ensure that those who have pledged in their dreams to ‘review the free SHS policy’ do not get the chance to destroy this policy in the very unlikely event they return” he added.
