Exercise caution on Free SHS Bill – Joshua Alabi tells govt

The ex-Rector of UPSA in Accra, Prof Joshua Alabi, has advised the government to proceed cautiously with the proposed legislation concerning the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

This bill, anticipated to be presented in Parliament by the Education Minister, aims to legally mandate future administrations to uphold the policy.

During an interview with Citi News in Accra on Thursday, Prof Alabi suggested that the government should prioritize periodic evaluations of the program to ensure its optimal effectiveness.

“In the first place we are not saying the Free SHS is not good. We have never said that all that we are saying is that the way it is being run is not the best for our people and that is why we kept in the word review and they told the whole world that we were going to stop it and that was just very unfortunate.

“Everything needs development, So, you can’t put something in the constitution which will just [be] cast in stone.”

“I think what we have to do is to make sure that we give an opportunity for reviews to develop and progress. So, I don’t know exactly what the bill is going to look like, but I think that we should tread cautiously,” he stated.
