Free SHS Bill in the offing to ensure no future government cancels policy

Free SHS Bill in the offing to ensure no future government cancels policy

Yaw Osei Adutwum is expected to present a bill to parliament to bind future governments to the free Senior High School (Free SHS policy.).

The Free SHS bill is part of a number of legislations expected to be considered by parliament during the 3rd meeting which commenced on Tuesday (June 11).

Addressing the media during a leadership engagement, Majority Leader Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin argued that such a legal backing for the policy will ensure it becomes a right for every qualified Ghanaian.

The fact that they are there does not mean that you can apply to the court to enforce those rights.

Now when it gets to a point that a government lifts it up to give life to it, there’s a need to enact a law to regulate it.

He continued: “So I think that this free SHS Bill if we consider it as a House, what that means is that it becomes mandatory for the government to implement this until it is repealed

No government will have the right to say ‘I’m not going to enforce Free SHS’ because now there is a law.”
