This comes on the back of several calls made by the public through the #FixTheCountry campaign which has taken over social media attention in the country.
The campaign is to draw the attention of the government and authorities to some basic needs of the people in the country. The initiative is geared towards entreating the government to sit up and develop structures that can help move the nation forward.
Following the conversation closely on Twitter, the general public are unhappy about how the education system in the country is being handled.
According to some users, the Free Senior High School policy needs to be relooked at since it has some loopholes in them.
Below are some of the reactions on Twitter;
Nana Addo alone promised Ghanaians so many things but couldn't fulfill 20 percent of his promises. Destroying our educational system in the name of free shs. Corruption everywhere. So many useless Ministers. #FixingTheCountryGhana pic.twitter.com/hHnRDExfWY— drip.gad???????????????????? (@Derekvybez) May 10, 2021

Even Free SHS is a constitutional requirement by every gov’t to work towards making it a reality with conditions attached to it but this gov’t decided to make political capital out of it. The current challenges we’ve in the sector is as a result of the rush implementation.— OWUS-AZAY (@OwusuX) May 9, 2021

You are not reading the finance minister’s statement. Are you?
Free SHS is a good thing but if “ all the revenue has to go into that “what about other critical services in the country?
There’s nothing wrong with encouraging us to be better and responsible citizens.— miss forson (@lydiaforson) May 10, 2021
BUT there’s everything wrong with it as a counter response to people demanding water,electricity, roads, healthcare and a functioning system that enables all this.
Let’s do better.
Like I said the Npp thinks people voted for them because they have fixed a thing but I tell them it's a lie, their free shs couldn't save them. Kumasi people voted on tribalism like the old man is of the Prez sit, the Interchange, ambulance are J.M projects— Joseph Nii Tetteh Okine (@JosephNiiTette1) May 10, 2021

Now, headmasters in the Senior high schools are meeting parents to convince them to pay some monies to help with the free SHS.I think the headmasters who had foresight & decided to involve the parents from the scratch of the FreeSHS but were demoted by the GES must be reinstated.— Owuo Mmp3 Sika (@Rich108001191) May 10, 2021
