Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has revealed that government is strategizing ways to furnish both tertiary and secondary institutions with free wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi).
According to him, the action yet to be taken is in fulfillment of President Akufo-Addo’s promise made to students during his 2016 campaign.
Speaking at the official launch of the 20th anniversary of Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) in Accra, Bawumia reechoed the promise.

“We promised free Wi-Fi to Tertiary Institutions and Senior High Schools. Well, I’m happy to tell you that Nana Akufo-Addo has not been sleeping on that promise. He’s been working on it and this year by the grace of God, keep your fingers crossed, we’ll start to roll out a free Wi-Fi in tertiary institutions as well as the Senior High Schools,” Bawumia noted.
Dr Bawumia disclosed that phase one of the project would commence from the University of Ghana, University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) among other schools.
He added the project would spread nationwide to enhance government’s digitization policy as soon as phase one is completed.
“We expect to begin phase one of this particular programme with the University of Ghana, UPSA, West Africa Senior High School in Adentan and Kwabenya Community Day, C/A SHS and Ejisu,” he said.
