Mahama must enroll his children under Free SHS – Chairman Wontumi

Speaking to Accra based NEAT FM, the Ashanti Regional Chairman, popularly called Wontumi expressing his joy for the commencement of the policy stated that it will be prudent for the former first family to take advantage of the NPP’s initiative.
“John Mahama must send all his family members to SHS to benefit. He thought President Nana Addo couldn’t do it, he has done it. Free education is here,” He stated.
