Vice President Bawumia announced that this year, all SHS students nationwide will receive tablets.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the country’s Vice President, recently revealed that there are plans afoot for the government to provide free electronic tablets to all pupils enrolled in Senior High Schools (SHS) throughout the country.

According to Dr. Bawumia, this action is being taken as part of the digitization goal of the administration.

The Vice President has stated that the tablet will be utilized by the pupils as a substitute for traditional textbooks.

The Vice President of Ghana delivered a speech at the New Year School that was held at the University of Ghana in Legon this year.

“We are on track to give every student enrolled in Senior High School in Ghana a tablet computer for their studies this year. These computers will be pre-loaded with the necessary textbooks.” This is a very significant turn of events that will change the game. On these tablets, which will be delivered to you, we will have questions from the past that have been preloaded.
