He added that the president was bold enough to do what a lot of presidents could not do and the fact that he was able to do it was a big plus for him.
"One thing I have to admire about Akufo-Addo is his confidence to establish the free SHS as a policy.
... when a President comes and against all odds says 'I want to establish it as a policy' and puts his foot down to do it amidst all the difficulties that we are seeing; that’s a leader that you can trust,” he stressed.
President Akufo-Addo rolled out the Free SHS programme in the first year of his first term and about 1.2 million students have been enrolled into second-cycle institutions in the past three years.
