“Free SHS will also cover agricultural, vocational and technical institutions at the high school level. I also want to state clearly again that we have a well-thought-out plan that involves the building of new public senior high schools and cluster public senior high schools,” - President Akuffo Addo. August 2017

This will be a fulfillment of his long-held campaign promise as far back as the 2008 elections. The free SHS policy began in September 2017.

President Nana Akufo-Addo has indicated that his administration so far has witnessed the fulfillment of a number of promises he made to the Ghanaian people in the run-up to the 2016 elections.

President Akufo-Addo said many of the pledges he made to the Ghanaians, prior to the December 2016 elections, were described by his political opponents as lies and impossibilities.

“They told you that Free SHS was a lie. They said I could not restore teacher trainee and nursing trainee allowances. They said the revival of the National Health Insurance Scheme was also impossible.

"Right before the eyes of all Ghanaians, I am fulfilling these promises one after the other. Before the end of my tenure in office, I would have fulfilled all of the promises I made to you.” - President Akufo Addo (May 2018)

President Akufo-Addo is confident that with the fulfillment of his promises, Ghanaians will know that he is an honest person who did not deceive them in order to win their votes in 2016.
