The wife of Ghana’s vice president, Samira Bawumia has urged students to make use of the Free SHS policy by being serious with their education.
She said: “Free Senior High education was launched by his Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo so that all children can go to school in this country.
“It has been proven that a nation that is educated is the most likely to develop so we don’t want anybody to be left out. Today is the beginning of the rest of your life, take this opportunity to learn hard and dream big,” she said.
“Our president had dreamt big about Free SHS but, Alhamdulillah, he has done it, so if you dream big and set your sight to things that are impossible but you know are good, you can achieve it,” she added.
She further indicated that the policy will lessen the financial burden on parents.
The wife of the Vice president has for some time now been advocating girl child education and education within Muslim communities.
