President John Mahama has said his government has achieved 97% enrolment of pupils into basic schools across the country.

According to him, the remaining 3% are being captured under the complementary school enrolment programme.

In terms of general enrolment in schools, the president said his government has ensured its increase to 9 million in the 2016 academic year.

The president made this known during his presentation to a cross-section of Ghanaians, the highlights of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Manifesto for 2016.

He said his government increased educational facilities by about 26 percent, largely eliminated the shift system and distributed about 100 million exercise books to pupils.

The president said the school feeding programme increased to 1.7 million in 2014, with gender parity in education being assured.
