THE ONLY THREAT TO FREE SHS IS NDC!!!!!!

The Minister is right. The government can finance the program by either raising taxes or have means test, to qualify or disqualify applicants. We cannot make it an open to all program, unless we solve the problem of corruption. I happen to believe the country is blessed enough with both human and mineral resources to be able to finance such noble project. The country needs to seriously consider overhauling its tax system, such as property and corporate taxes to strengthen its revenue base. If corruption should be made a thing of the past, Ghana will be a model not only in Africa but beyond. It can be done.
