“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," he said.

The free TVET will operate from all levels from the second cycle to tertiary.

Mahama clarified that students of technical and vocational education at the second and tertiary level will pay no fees. We must not pay lip service to technical and vocational education.

According to Mr. Mahama, if elected, his administration will continue to clear the hurdles hindering technical and vocational education to make it more attractive for students.

He went on to express his commitment to rebrand and reposition TVET through strategic resourcing and capacity building to solve the staggering unemployment situation in the country.
