Former President of Ghana, H.E. John Dramani Mahama in a recent submission has claimed that he was the one who started the free SHS policy.
He made this bold claim when speaking at Sienchem in the Asutifi South Constituency as he recounted how he brought about the now highly acclaimed Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.
Mr Mahama told the gathering present that he started the Free SHS programme, claiming it was meant for day students.
“Free SHS is good. If anyone stands anywhere and says that I, John Mahama, will cancel Free SHS tell the person he or she is a liar,” adding, “I haven’t said anywhere that when we come to power we are going to cancel the policy. We started it with day students and we were going to expand it when, unfortunately, we left office,” he said.
