Mahama must enroll his children under Free SHS –

Sometimes I feel really embarrassed when I read the discourse amongst Ghanaians. Look let's face it, free SHS is a brilliant idea and anyone who says otherwise needs his head examined. The real question is, are we ready for it now? Conservative estimates put the costs for the 1,2&3 years to over GHC5.4 billion annually. Now we currently have an economy which cannot balance its books without donor support. Which goes to the bond market continuously to finance our basic needs and is struggling to service our debt. How can we afford to find GHC5.4 billion annually?? I fear this laudable idea will destroy our already ailing economy
