Education Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh says not a single dime was paid for 100,000 students enrolled under President John Dramami Mahama’s progressively free Senior High School policy for the 2015/2016 academic year.

Although he did not mention the quantum of money involved during that academic year, he said such was the situation President Nana Addo Dankwwa Akufo-Addo inherited.

Dr. Prempeh revealed this when he appeared before Parliament, Tuesday, to answer to some questions relating to the government’s flagship Free SHS policy.
