90,000 students gained access to SHS under NPP - Nana Addo

Delivering his second State of the Nation's Address, he said his government will do everything possible to sustain the programme.

The Free SHS policy began rolling out on September 12, 2017 and within just five months, admission to SHSs around the country had increased by over 90, 000 students.

He said the 90,000 would have missed on the opportunity to have secondary education if it had not been for Free SHS.

The NPP government has made it clear that in spite of foreseeable challenges with the implementation of the Free SHS, it was prepared to brave it for the sake of the Ghanaian child and the nation’s future.
