According to him, government is working feverishly to address challenges associated with the implementation of the free SHS programme.

“I want to see sterner actions taken against such persons, particularly those who decide to divert or steal resources meant for the FSHS programme,” he said at the 50th anniversary celebration of the enstoolment of Nana Boakye Tromu III as Omanhene and President of the Duayaw Nkwanta Traditional Council in the Brong Ahafo region Saturday.

He added: “What is rather sad and disturbing in the implementation of the FSHS policy is the desire by some Ghanaians to make sure the programme fails.

"In the last few months of its implementation we have had reports of deliberate attempts by some individuals ranging from matrons, heads of institutions, and others attempting to circumvent the regulations and stealing materials intended to benefit the children who are in their care.

"This is an unacceptable," he stressed.
