“I’ll make technical and vocational education in Ghana, free of charge. I note that, this has generated a positive reception from Ghanaians. Let me assure that, our program of technical and vocational education are comprehensive and far-reaching. The free TVET will operate from all levels from the second cycle to tertiary,” he said at an NDC gathering in Accra.
Speaking at the NDC’s rally to launch an online platform that will make it easy for party members and non-members to contribute monies to the 2020 campaign, Mr. Mahama also said his new administration will reintroduce the automatic promotion for teachers.

He further added that when the NDC wins power, they will cancel the teacher licensure exams.
John Mahama gave assurances that the NDC. Will complete all 200 secondary school structures abandoned by the Akufo-Addo government.
