Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has debunked claims that he will put an end to the Free Senior High School program introduced by the New Patriotic Party (NPP), if re-elected president.

While addressing the King of Dagbon during a courtesy call, the former President emphasized that he has never been against the policy and will not terminate it.

“Free Senior High School education has come to stay. If anybody tells you that I, John Dramani Mahama, son of E.A Mahama will abolish Free SHS when I come, tell the person he is a bloody liar”, Mahama stated

Mahama is however of the view that, the policy has been poorly implemented and intends to address the loopholes in the program.

“What I am against is the poor implementation of the free SHS which is creating great inconvenience for the parents, for the students and for the teachers and the point I have made is that we can make it better”, he emphasized

Mr. Mahama further admonished government for abandoning the 200-day school project started by his administration, which according to him would have curbed the need for a double-track system.

“If this government had followed our plan of continuing with the 200 new Senior High Schools that we were building, we will not have the current situation that we have in our free SHS plan”, he said.
