Former President John Mahama, at a recent community engagement held in the Bolgatanga East District in the Upper East Region, affirmed his commitment to enhancing the Free Senior High School (SHS) program initiated by the NPP administration.

Contrary to speculations, Mr. Mahama stated that he has no intention of canceling the program but aims to make it more effective for all students if elected in the upcoming 2024 elections.

Acknowledging the current state of the program, the former president emphasized that improvements are crucial to ensure its success and benefit for students.

One of the key changes he proposed is the decentralization of the school feeding program. According to him, his vision will be to empower school heads to contract local food suppliers within their respective districts, creating a more localized and responsive approach to catering to the nutritional needs of the students.

He stressed that allowing schools to engage with nearby food suppliers not only enhances the quality of meals but also stimulates local economies.

This announcement, he said, forms part of his broader agenda for educational reform and hence will focus on addressing the challenges within the current Free SHS program.
