The Director of Communications of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Richard Ahiagbah has assured Ghanaians that the flagbearer of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will intensify the implementation of the free senior high school policy.

He accused the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC0 John Dramani Mahama of planning to cancel the policy. Hence Dr Bawumia should be voted for in the 2024 general elections.

In a post on his X platform, Mr Ahiagbah said “Ghanaians can rest assured that as president, Bawumia will intensify the implementation of the Free SHS policy. However, H.E. Mahama and the NDC have criticized the Free SHS policy and called it a scam.

“They are plotting to abolish/cancel it unless you stop them by voting for Bawumia. It’s possible…”



Recently, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia engaged with the National Executives of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) to share his plans in the educational sector with them.

The engagement took place at the seat of government, the Jubilee House in  Accra on Monday, April 22.

Dr Bawumia indicated after the meeting that the national executives of CHASS made some “excellent” contributions to improving the free Senior High School Policy and general aspects of education.

In a Facebook post after the meeting, he said “I used the opportunity to explain my vision of leveraging the private sector and an enhanced credit system to expand educational infrastructure and support teaching and non-teaching staff to improve the quality of education and educational outcomes.

“Under my proposal (which I mentioned during my February 7th speech at UPSA) the private sector will be encouraged to build infrastructure (such as dormitories, classrooms, etc.) which government will rent over a period of years and own it after a period of time. Government will also lease buses for schools. This new mode of financing will avoid huge initial government outlays (through the  GETFUND) and delays in the completion of infrastructure projects in our senior high schools.”

“Like me,” he added “CHASS is excited about the prospects of this policy proposal as it will reduce the educational infrastructure deficit, improve maintenance, enhance the quality of education and at the same time improve the management of Government expenditure.

“I am grateful to the leadership of CHASS for the honest and fruitful discussions. It is possible!”
