The Free Senior High School (FSHS) Programme is one of policies of the current governments which was implemented in 2017. The programme has received a lot of backlashes. Many people have made several calls on the government to create some reforms in the programme. There are many others who also support this government initiative.
Recently, the Deputy Minster of Finance-designate, Hon. Abeana Osei Asare took her turn to be vetted by the members of Parliament's Appointment Committee.
In one of her answers to a question posed by the vetting panel, she said the country needs to continue borrowing in order to sustain the FSHS flagship programme. This statement did not seem to have gone down well with most Ghanaians and thus have also expressed their concerns about the comments of Hon. Mrs. Osei Asare.
In some of the posts, the concerned Ghanaian believes that it would be better if parents rather paid the fees of their wards since some parents could afford the fees. This would help to prevent the excessive borrowing by government done to support the programme. Others think the programme is not sustainable and hence should be scrapped.
Below are some of the reactions of Ghanaians to the comments of Hon. Osei Asare:
