Controversial Ghanaian singer Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, known in showbiz as Mzbel has lauded the free Senior High School (SHS) policy implemented by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The implementation of the free SHS education policy begins today, September 11, 2017 as the 2017/2018 academic year starts.

The programme will start with first year students in all public SHSs and Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) institutions across the country.

The free SHS policy implies the absorption of all approved fees currently charged to students in public SHS and TVET Institutions.

President Akufo-Addo announced that government will fund the cost of the high school system for all who qualify into the 2017/2018 academic year.
