Cancel School Feeding Programme – Assibey Yeboah Tells Government
A former Chairman of Parliament’s Finance Committee, Dr Mark Assibey Yeboah has also asked government to terminate the School Feeding Programme. According to him, the cancellation of the policy would reduce the state’s expenditure. The former New Juaben South MP said the rosy picture being painted by the government
about the programme is fictional since it has also been ineffective in recent times. Now the caterers go to the school twice a week, because the funds they have are not feeding the kids. We continue to pretend that we are feeding the kids at school, they are malnourished, the food is not good. Cancel it [School Feeding Programme].
It will save you about a billion cedis, he stated on Wednesday. Dr. Assibey Yeboah also proposed that teacher and nursing training allowances be revoked. In his view, the initiative has lost its usefulness.
