Former President John Dramani Mahama has revealed that he started the Free SHS programme but with the intention of just enrolling day students.
Speaking at Sienchem in the Asutifi South Constituency, during his speakout tour, he said, “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.”
