Free SHS Students Mostly Getting Pregnant:🗣 Otokunor

  |   Ghana News

The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Otokunor, has said that the beneficiaries of free SHS are mostly susceptible to malaria and teenage pregnancy.

Peter Otokunor was reacting to recent comments made by President Akufo-Addo regarding the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

Speaking in an interview on Neat FM, Otokunor said he felt "Akufo-Addo has lost touch" with issues because Mahama and the NDC have never opposed the Free SHS policy.

“Students enjoying free SHS are being bitten by mosquitoes because there is no school building to sit in to learn; they are getting pregnant here and there because when their track ends and they go home, they have nothing to do; that is why we were advocating for infrastructure,” he said.
