President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said the Free Senior High School policy will from next month in September, have all students from SHS 1 to SHS 3 being its beneficiaries.

According to President Akufo-Addo, “In all, 1.2 million children will be enrolled in our High Schools across the country under the policy, making it the largest number of students so enrolled in our history.”

The President made this known on Saturday, 10 August 2019, when he delivered the keynote address at the 4th graduation ceremony of the University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani, in the Bono Region.

In his speech, President Akufo-Addo indicated that “it is, thus, inevitable that from 2020, when the first batch of free SHS students graduate, our universities and other tertiary institutions will be confronted with the challenge of higher numbers of students seeking admission.”
