The government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will later this year begin the piloting of a free Wi-Fi policy for universities and senior high schools.
This was announced by Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia when he joined the youth of Ghana to celebrate the 2019 International Youth Day (IYD) under the auspices of the National Youth Authority at the Anagkazo Bible School in Mampong, Eastern Region on Wednesday, 14 August 2019.
Dr Bawumia said the Ghanaian youth, over the years, have made significant contributions toward the development of the country and, therefore, it is only right and apt that the government and the entire Ghanaian society show greater commitment toward their welfare.
He noted that the government has demonstrated, through the introduction and implementation of innovative policies, to transform the education system and make it more accessible to the young people.
“We will continue the path of helping the Ghanaian youth in diverse ways to make life in Ghana better for them,” he stated.
Inspired by the performance of the Mamfe Methodist Girls’ students who won the 2019 International Robotics Competition in the USA, Dr Bawumia challenged the Ghanaian youth to have the mindset of “possibilities” because “they are as good as, and, in many cases even better than their peers in the more advanced countries.”
