The Ghanaian Ministry of Education has finally spoken out about the purported food scarcity in Senior High Schools.
The Ministry of Education has disputed accusations of food shortages in several senior high schools (SHS) in the Volta Region.
According to the Ministry of Education, directed by Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, they were surprised by news publications and media conversations claiming the imminent closure of several Senior High Schools owing to food shortages, with specific allusions to schools in the Volta Region.
According to a statement released by the Ministry of Education’s spokesperson, Mr. Kwesi Kwarteng, the Ministry wishes to report that enough supply of food items have been made to the schools in question.
However, the Ministry is aware of recent interruptions in the food supply chain and assures parents and guardians that these have been rectified. As a result, all Senior High Schools in the country, according to the Ministry, have received an appropriate quantity of food supplies.
The Ministry of Education desires to reassure the public of its commitment and willingness to provide high-quality meals to all Senior High Schools on a timely basis. As a result, the Education Ministry has disputed rumors of food shortages in Senior High Schools and urged the public to dismiss such stories.
The announcement follows reports that several schools in the Volta Region may be forced to close owing to a lack of food supply.
