The introduction of free secondary education, popularly referred to as "Free SHS" was a contentious issue in Ghana during the 2012 elections, with the population divided as to its implementation.

Though a section of the public believed that 'Free SHS' will enable many deprived Ghanaians to access secondary education, others expressed fears that it could cause the quality of education in secondary schools to drop.

The Catholic Bishop of the Sunyani Dioceses of the Catholic Church, Most Rev Matthew Kwasi Gyamfi, has noted that there is not a single government that can implement free education in the country because it is expensive and calls for collaborations.

Most Rev Matthew Kwasi Gyamfi made the observation at Dormaa Masu in the Dormaa Municipality of the Brong Ahafo Region during the inauguration of a six-unit block for the Delany Academy School, constructed by the Patrician Brothers at a cost of GH₵600,000.

Most Rev Matthew Kwasi Gyamfi advised the gathering that they should not allow themselves to be deceived by politicians that they are capable of implementing free education in the country.

He urged them to do all they can to educate their child so that in the future they enjoy from their sweat.

Most Rev Gyamfi said parents should not put all their hopes on government to provide their children’s education, and called on them to provide their children with quality education.

“No government can implement free education in the country ... it calls for a collaboration between government and parents. My advice to you is that do not allow yourselves to be deceived by the politicians that they can implement free education; when they ask you about who gave you that information that governments cannot provide free education, tell them I did,” Most Rev Gyamfi stated.
