Governance is about Planning and Common Sense – Mahama mocks NPP’s Free SHS

Former President John Dramani Mahama has punched severe hole into the Akufo Addo government as he described the implementation of Free SHS policy to be weak.

Addressing delegates at Akyem Tafo in Abuakwa North in the Eastern region, the former President said the Free SHS Policy is good but the implementation is absolutely poor.

He therefore continued by revealing that governance is about ”planning and common sense” hence the ruling NPP should have first provided the infrastructure to accommodate the exponential students population before carrying out the programme.

According to Mr. Mahama the NDC government when voted into power will complete 200 community Day SHS and abolish the double track system.


Ex-President Mahama strongly indicated that he’ll review the Akufo-Addo government’s Free SHS policy, when elected President in December 2020.

To him, the Free SHS policy is taking a nose-dive because government failed to assemble experts and stakeholders for a national conference on education to deliberate on the policy.

President John Dramani Mahama is currently on a 5-day campaign tour of the Eastern Region where he’s meeting delegates in various constituencies ahead of the party’s Presidential primaries.
