Education Ministry Refutes Food Shortage Reports In Senior High Schools

The Education Ministry has denied media reports of food shortage in some Senior High Schools (SHS), particularly in the Volta Region.

The Ministry in a statement said such reports are untrue, explaining that “all Senior High Schools in the country have received adequate supply of food items”.

Heads of schools have warned of a possible closure of schools following the unavailability of food items to cater for the student population.

But the Deputy PRO for Ministry of Education, Mr Enerst Akosa in an interview with Obuoba Ofori Amanfo on Ahenkan FM’s “Maakye” morning show said its checks reveal adequate supplies have been made to the schools in question.

“The Ministry however takes cognizance of recent disruptions within the food supply chain, but assures parents and guardians that they have been addressed”, the release stressed.

Mr Enerst Akosa mentioned that, the National Food Buffer Stock Company Limited has supplied enough food to schools across the country.

“The public is respectfully encouraged to disregard claims of food shortage in our SHSs. The Ministry can confirm that our agency–Buffer Stock– distributed food to all schools in the country. Every school is adequately resourced in terms of food to at least sustain them until the next supply is made. So those media reports of food shortage are unfounded.”
