Bring back four-year SHS policy - chief to NPP

According to him, the recent SHS statistics released by the WAEC paints a picture of an ailing senior high school system with rippling consequences on sporting and other extra curricula activities.


He believes the three year duration is short to warrant educational success.

Nana Ogyeahoho said "I was sad to read the recent SHS statistics released by the WAEC.... Those who had grade F9 are 38.9%. How can our country develop when we have these failures?

He continued that "my appeal to NPP and Nana Akoffu Addo is to review this current three year SHS policy when the people of this country give you the nod. Review the policy and examine it again to see if the four years policy is what will help us.

“Than this three years policy is part of the dwindling fortunes of other sporting disciplines and other extra curricula activities in our schools. How many persons could Ghana produce for the ongoing Olympics in Rio? The reason is that the timetable for the SHS is approximately 2years and some three months. If we need to take the four year policy, let's do it, if it is the 3 years too, let's resource the schools", Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi suggested.

Nana Ogyeahoho made this appeal when Nana Akuffo Addo paid a courtesy call on him at his palace at Sefwi Ahwiaso in his five day tour of the Western Region.
