Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah has waded into the free SHS debate following the assertion by former President John Dramani Mahama that he launched it in 2015.

The Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), said: “We started the programme and the NPP came and continued it. Unfortunately, the implementation has been very poor, and so it ended us in the double track. I assure you my countrymen, that within one year, I will cancel the double track".

This has however generated backlash especially from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
