The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has revealed that the government has installed free wireless internet connection popularly known as Wi-Fi in 80% of Senior High Schools across the country.
This, according to him, is intended to broaden the scope of education, Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT), research, and knowledge acquisition in these institutions.
He claimed the project is being finished earlier than he expected as he thought it would be completed the next year 2021.
The initiative was made public by the Vice President early 2020 at a Town Hall Meeting in Kumasi.
“We promised to provide free Wifi to our secondary schools and thankfully, the Education Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh and the Communications Minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful have worked very hard on this. I really salute them for this. At least 80% of all our Senior High Schools have now been connected to free Wifi, that is the data we have,” he said.
