Groupe Ideal Boss hails Akufo-Addo over free SHS

The president of Groupe Ideal, Dr. Nii Kotei Dzani has hailed the Akufo-Addo-led government for the implementation of the Free Senior High School policy.

According to Dr. Dzani, government’s commitment to expanding access and quality of education through the implementation of the free SHS is commendable.

The free SHS program – a major campaign promise ahead of the 2016 elections by the NPP – kick started on Monday across the country.

Over 400, 000 JHS graduates are expected to benefit from the policy which was officially launched on Tuesday by President Akufo-Addo.

According to the President, program will be funded by the income from the nation’s oil and natural resources.

In a statement to commend the President and the NPP administration for the implementation of the policy, Dr. Dzani called on Ghanaians to support the program and ensure it becomes a success.

“it is my fervent hope and belief that the smooth administration of this programme will lead to the reinvigoration of our educational sector, especially for the thousands of poor and vulnerable young people, whose educational aspirations now stand emancipated from the shackles of poverty, in order that their God-given talents will have a chance to flourish.

“As citizens, we must support Government’s efforts, in any way we can, to see to the enduring success of this initiative. That is why beginning this week, I shall be visiting select senior secondary schools in the Greater Accra Region to appraise myself on the implementation of the programme and to donate exercise books and other logistics to these select schools.”

HON. DR. NII KOTEI DZANI CONGRATULATES GOVERNMENT ON THE COMMENCEMENT OF FREE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION

Upon the commencement of Government’s flagship policy of Free Senior High School education, I wish to take this opportunity to extend my most profound congratulations to the Government of Ghana and the numerous stakeholders who have worked tirelessly to ensure the realization of this monumental initiative.

Undoubtedly, a country’s most prized resource is its human resource. As such, I find as most commendable the Government’s commitment to expanding access and quality of education in our generation through the implementation of Free Senior High School education.

The history of our country richly demonstrates the power of free education to harness the creativity of our young people and to positively impact the growth of the economy and our development.

Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s free and compulsory basic education nurtured the unique gifts of many of our society’s current leaders, without which their place in society would not have been assured.

Being a beneficiary of the benevolence of others in my educational journey, I know the power of Government’s educational interventions to transform lives, and ultimately the economy.

For this reason, it is my fervent hope and belief that the smooth administration of this programme will lead to the reinvigoration of our educational sector, especially for the thousands of poor and vulnerable young people, whose educational aspirations now stand emancipated from the shackles of poverty, in order that their God-given talents will have a chance to flourish.

As citizens, we must support Government’s efforts, in any way we can, to see to the enduring success of this initiative. That is why beginning this week, I shall be visiting select senior secondary schools in the Greater Accra Region to appraise myself on the implementation of the programme and to donate exercise books and other logistics to these select schools.

In the future, I hope to offer a lot more of my support and assistance in any areas required of me. It is now the responsibility of every Ghanaian to do likewise, for the future of our children is the future of our nation.
