Celebrated Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker has expressed his love for the NPP’s flagship program, The Free Senior High School Program.
According to Van, the program is a life saving one that has enabled hundreds of thousands of Ghanaian youth to further their education. He acknowledged the fact that the program has come with its own inherent problems but the fact that school dropouts can return to schools with any financial hindrance, it is an incredible program.

Evidence indicates his support for the ruling government the NPP party to continue with the Free SHS program. Although, he may not be on the campaign team or represent the party, the message delivered to fans indicates his position and would edge everyone to do same.
This is NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT
My name is Van Vicker, an actor, a film maker, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a businessman, etc. and I want to call a spade a spade.
The FREE SHS program has enabled hundreds of thousands of Ghanaian youth to further their education.
It is not a perfect system (yet) but for the fact that an SHS student dropout can return to the classroom or for the fact that a JHS student can continue his/her secondary education for FREE is incredible.
I put a premium on education FOR ALL.
I would have enrolled at the university back in 1996 IF THE FREE SHS PROGRAM EXISTED, unfortunately it didn’t. My secondary education expenses depleted mama’s savings so I kissed my dream of being a gynecologist good bye. My narration today is not to say I regret my current profession but rather to unequivocally state that THE FREE SHS PROGRAM BENEFITS OUR YOUTH and only if it was implemented back in my day, my mother would have SAVED enough to eventually fund my tertiary education.
THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT. IT IS MY EMPIRISIM.
Long Live Democracy
Long Live FREE SHS
Long Live 🇬🇭
