Mahama Promises To “Make Tertiary Education Progressively Free”

President Mahama has assured students of the Cape Coast university that tertiary education would be free as Ghana’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) increases.


The president’s in an address to students as part of his five-day tour of the Central region stated that government was investing heavily in tertiary education just so teaching and learning is made much easier.


“I wish to assure you that as Ghana’s GDP continues to grow and as we continue to make wealth, we will continue to make tertiary education progressively free so that you pay less fees,” Mahama assured.

Mahama’s assurance follows government’s implementation of the free senior high school education policy which has attracted condemnation from the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
