The president has revealed that his administration has invested 23 percent of the nation’s expenditure on the expenses of the free senior high school policy. He says the only reason behind the free SHS is to make Ghana’s youth ready for a much prosperous future.

He further hinted of plans expanding the Free-SHS policy to the tertiary level to ensure that the access to education is achieved under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Speaking at the Global Education Summit, co-hostHed by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, in London, on Thursday 29 July 2021, President Akufo-Addo noted that the goal of countries in Africa is to move away from being mere producers and exporters of raw materials to valued added economies.

“This is a story that has gone through the process. This is a movie that somebody thought it was a nice subject of the day and why not just through into the market, it would draw the audience coming in.

So it was a two different thing in one, somebody was taking advantage of a scenario just to make money and the other it was well structured,” he added.

Meanwhile, the actor also revealed that he had earlier on rejected another offer to play a gay role. His argument was that the said role had no purpose and was only to cause controversy and a public stare – a situation he was not prepared to handle as a young actor.

The revelation by Adjetey Annan follows the controversial anti-LGBTQ bill which has generated debate across the country.
