Ghanaians question why Afia Kobi is not a beneficiary of free SHS

Despite her impressive performance, which earned her the valedictorian status, many Ghanaians are not impressed about Otumfuo's daughter's graduation.

Some have questioned why she is not a beneficiary of the free Senior High School (free SHS) currently run in the country.

Her situation has made many Ghanaians question whether Ghana's educational system under the free SHS is suitable.
