“President Nana Addo has cheated we the aged by introducing Free SHS at a time we have finished fathering children.
So we are tempted to resume fathering more children to also enjoy the policy. I have leased big land for educational projects; our children must also enjoy the Free SHS. We thank the president and his government”.
The chief urged parents in the community to take advantage of the Free SHS policy to educate their children to help reduce poverty in the area.
