Speaking at a press conference in Accra on Wednesday, the Eastern Regional Coordinator and spokesperson of the council, Micheal Assan noted that after 55 years as a country the argument of secondary education should be about implementation not its feasibility.

He bellowed that the country must now move away from the questioning of its essence and feasibility and focus on seeking further details from the leaders on how they intend to do it.

The council stressed that as a component of NUGS, it fully endorses the policy of free education, as well as providing infrastructure, equipping and retaining of teachers in the educational sector as espoused by the presidential candidates of NPP, PPP and CPP.

The council encouraged all presidential candidates to see the need for free SHS education NOW other than within the shortest possible time.

The students' body reckoned that the free education will be expensive but cheaper when juxtaposed to the number of armed robbery and child prostitution cases that would be visited on the nation if the situation remains this way.

They quibbled that if Ghana loses 3 billion due to lack of proper record keeping, spends 290 million annually on sanitation and over 600 million on preventable judgement debts, why can’t it afford free SHS?

The council posited that any serious political party which wants power should know that SHS command potential over 700,000 students voters so it must prioritize the need for free SHS.
