The Shortage Of Food In SHS Will Not End Soon, Provide Adequate Food For Your Wards. According To Africa Education Watch

The CEO of Africa Education Watch, a civil society organisation which specialises in the education sector, has disclosed the reason parents, students, teachers and the general public should not expect an end soon to the food shortages in senior high schools in the country.

In a short brief, the CEO, Kofi Asare disclosed that the ‘government owes fSHS suppliers over Ghc320 million, with some dating as far as the year 2021’. Aside from the fact that the suppliers are broke, he said the recent rising food inflation is compounding the situation.

The worse case scenario which was painted by the CEO was that the ministry of finance, ‘MOF, is unable to disburse the Ghc2 billion cash according to the disbursement plan’ for the free SHS and urged Ghanaians and the media to seek answers from the minister for Finance, Ken Ofori-Attah.

Kofi Asare, who was skeptical about the ability of the state to release the much needed funds for the flagship fSHS, is worried the release of the fSHS funds will ‘become a culture like the capitation grant delays’ at the basic level of Ghana’s education.
