She disclosed that she sat for the Basic Education Certification Examination (BECE) with her firstborn.
”I remember I sat for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) with my fifth born and had it not been for the Free SHS, I wouldn’t have continued my education to this level,” she said. Comfort Nutsugah, praised President Akufo-Addo for implementing the Policy while calling on all stakeholders to guarantee the success of the programme.
