Tertiary Education in Ghana to be made free very soon – Akufo-Addo hints

Ghanaian politician who is the current president of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has hinted that tertiary education in Ghana will soon be made free.

Speaking at the Global Education Summit which was hosted by the British Prime Minister and Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta held in London, Akufo-Addo noted that 23 per cent of Ghana’s expenses go into the Free SHS and hinted at expanding free SHS to the tertiary level.

President Akufo-Addo spoke at the Global Education Summit in the United Kingdom, praising his government’s initiatives under the Free-SHS Policy.

Akufo-Addo has stated that his administration had spent 23 per cent of the country’s budget on the program of free senior high school. He claims that the primary motive for the free SHS is to prepare Ghana’s young for a brighter future.

He also hinted at intentions to extend the Free-SHS policy to tertiary education in order to ensure that the Sustainable Development Goals are met in terms of access to education (SDGs).

The Global Education Summit was held on Thursday, 29th July 2021 in London and brought the global community together to support quality education for all children.

In total, $4 billion was raised at the Summit, which will provide millions of children, in some of the world’s most vulnerable countries, with an opportunity of having access to education.

Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, and Togo, among others, have pledged to promote girls’ education.
