2024 Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has promised free WiFi for all public second cycle and tertiary institutions across the country if the NDC forms the next government.

This he says will form part of the NDC’s unparalleled investments in the education sector which he assured his government will continue with.

According to him, the free WiFi service, shall be at strategic locations on the various campuses to facilitate academic work.

"As part of our education policy, we are going to make sure secondary and tertiary educational institutions have what we call a Wi-fi zone and so if you have to do your work and you have your laptop or tablet, if you go there you can connect to the Wi-fi and do your homework, do whatever you have to do and then you can submit your work to your lecturers," he said.

"If you know NDC, we don't promise what we can't do. We will make sure every public tertiary and secondary institution has a wi-fi zone," he emphasised.

Mahama was speaking at a campus connect event at the Savannah College of Education as part of the "Building Ghana Tour".
