GES is not conducting a review of Free SHS, according to the DG.

Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), has denied a report regarding the Free Senior High School Program that was attributed to him. 

He claims that the report's headline is "misleading" and "does not reflect the significance of the topic." 

Prof. Opoku-Amankwa had agreed to an interview, which was used to compile the reports. 

He contends that he was misreported, nevertheless. 

In response, he stated on Friday, July 22, "For the avoidance of doubt, the GES is not performing any examination of the FSHS." 

The President and the government have the only authority to conduct any such review of the FSHS Policy. 

He made it clear that the Service is essentially a government department responsible for carrying out pre-tertiary education-related policies and programs. 

The Ghana Education Service is a government organization and neither creates nor starts the process of reviewing policies. 

Prof. Opoku-Amankwa emphasized that the Free SHS Program "would not be harmed by the IMF program," as President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had informed students, prospective students, parents, and the entire nation. 

"It is the commitment of GES under my direction to make sure that the goal of His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of delivering accessible, equitable, and high-quality free SHS education is completely implemented
 to the benefit of the good people of Ghana."
