The Africa Education Watch has condemned President Akufo-Addo for his comment. That JHS students in schools preparing for their forthcoming BECE were going hungry. As a result of adhering to the COVID-19 safety protocols.
However, according to the Executive Director of Africa Education Watch. President Akufo-Addo’s claim is not backed by facts on the grounds adding that. “His decision to provide one hot meal each day for students. And also staff is not a wise use of the country’s resources.
His Excellency Akufo-Addo in his 15th televised nation’s address. Following reports that final year JHS students currently in school were going hungry in complying with the coronavirus safety protocols. He announced one hot meal each day until the end of the 2020 BECE on September 18, 2020.
But, the Africa Education Watch Executive Director, Mr Asare. Reacting to the President’s comment said Akufo-Addo seems to be using the initiative as a political tool than responding to a genuine need.
“No one has told us that they’re hungry; nobody has complained. We have been round the country, nobody has complained, i feel we are political season this is often tokenism”.
“We aren’t being prudent, we aren’t prioritizing our expenditure. If the scholars were hungry, they might are dead by now because they’ve been in class for one month”.
According to Executive Director feeding JHS and SHS students are not in line with education, but rather a tokenism, he told Starr News that “It’s not true that foods are not sold around schools and students are hungry,”
