I'm shocked Mahama claims he started free SHS
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says he is shocked at claims by former President John Mahama, that he introduced the free Senior High School in 2015. Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama told residents of the Upper East Region during his recent campaign tour that he started the free SHS policy before Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP took over. "I heard something yesterday that surprised me. The former President stated that my promise to start the free SHS policy was false and just a ploy to deceive Ghanaians. He was strongly against the policy and stated that if he had the money to implement that policy, he will use it for something else. He also said it will take Ghana years to implement it but now he is saying he started the Free SHS, and it's surprising."
