Since the NPP launched the free SHS program which was part of their 2016 manifesto, a lot of people within and outside Ghana have commended the government for introducing such program to enable Ghanaian youth have access to free secondary education.

Today on Instagram, Van Vicker shared a picture of President Nana Addo Dankwa-Akufo Addo and his Vice Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and captioned what he said was not a ‘political statement’.

Van Vicker who is an alumni of Mfantsipim secondary school said, had the free shs been launched during his years at the Mfantsipim school, her mother could have saved money to help him gain admission at the university after his secondary school education.

“My name is Van Vicker, an actor, a film maker, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a businessman, etc. and I want to call a spade a spade.

“The FREE SHS program has enabled hundreds of thousands of Ghanaian youth to further their education.

“It is not a perfect system (yet) but for the fact that an SHS student dropout can return to the classroom or for the fact that a JHS student can continue his/her secondary education for FREE is incredible.

“I put a premium on education FOR ALL.

“MY STORY
“I would have enrolled at the university back in 1996 IF THE FREE SHS PROGRAM EXISTED, unfortunately it didn’t. My secondary education expenses depleted mama’s savings so I kissed my dream of being a gynecologist good bye. My narration today is not to say I regret my current profession but rather to unequivocally state that THE FREE SHS PROGRAM BENEFITS OUR YOUTH and only if it was implemented back in my day, my mother would have SAVED enough to eventually fund my tertiary education.

“THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT. IT IS MY EMPIRICISM. Long Live Democracy. Long Live FREE SHS. Long Live GH.”
