“At long last the battle is ended and our beloved country, Ghana, is free forever.” That was how our first President
Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah put it in his famous speech on the day that Ghana attained her independence (March
6, 1957) from British colonial rule! Now with the arrival of the free SHS in Ghana, we can say, “At long last the
promise has become a reality and free SHS is here forever.”
Free SHS has been the dream of many a president of Ghana since the early 2000s in the light of affordable secondary
school education to ALL CHILDREN in the country. I therefore personally congratulate Nana Akufo Addo for his
political courage and financial commitment to making SHS free in Ghana at long last.
