The president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has revealed that tenders have already gone out and soon contracts will be awarded for the provision of some 69,500 mono desks and some 13,100 bunk beds.

According to him, additional tender notices have been issued for the supply of furniture for dining halls, staff rooms for teachers, computer laboratories and the provision of marker boards for classrooms and was confident that the Free SHS policy will ensure that children in Ghana are educated to at least the secondary level.

Nana Akuffo-Addo said this at the 68th speech and prize giving day celebration of Prempeh College in the Ashanti region.

The president also disclosed that under the Secondary Education Improvement project, government has secured a $40 million loan from the World Bank for the expansion and upgrading of facilities in 75 senior high schools across the country.

Construction works on the existing Community Day Schools are also ongoing and government will also upgrade 42 senior high schools into modern school status.

Meanwhile, Former President John Mahama has said one major problem that would hinder its success was funding.

He, therefore, urged the President to call a national stakeholders’ conference to enable them to deliberate on how effectively the programme could be financed to achieve the purpose for which it was established.

The Former President said this at the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s Unity Walk in Tarkwa in the Western Region.
