1.2 million students to benefit from free SHS this year

By on

The Minister of Information has said about 1.2 million students will be benefiting from the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme by the end of 2019.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said this at the just ended Town Hall Meeting in Bolgatanga, the   Upper East Regional Capital.

He said all programmes introduced by the government would be carried out successfully to deliver the needed change and improve the economy.

He called on the citizenry to give maximum support to the ministers to enable them to carry out their work effectively.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said the government was not relenting on its efforts to make the agricultural sector a vibrant one, hence it had made huge investments under the Planting for Food and Jobs, which was doing well.

Commenting on the banking sector, he said the financial cleanup exercise government undertook had saved over 14 million Ghana cedis in the sector and reassured Ghanaians of the safety of their deposits.

Mr. Nkrumah, therefore, reassured Ghanaians of government’s commitment to delivering change and expressed gratitude to the people of Upper East for the massive turnout and interest shown to be abreast of government’s policies, programmes, and interventions.
