Speaking at the Global Education Summit held in London on Thursday, July 29, President Akufo-Addo expressed confidence that making tertiary education free would grant more people access to education just like the Free SHS program.

“For now, what has been put in place is a system where students at the tertiary level are provided loans while in school to help them cater for their needs, but we’re considering free Tertiary education too,” he said.

He said the free SHS strategy had brought about approximately 400,000 additional youngsters gaining admittance to SHS schooling in the country, with the public authority tending to the framework challenges that accompanied the arrangement.

He expressed that Free SHS has been a triumph and given schooling freedoms to Ghanaians who might have been forgotten about because of absence of money.
