Reports gathered from most Senior High Schools under the Free SHS policy is that students are always served ” gari jollof” and ” donkey saliva” amidst food shortages in the various schools especially in the Northern Regions of Ghana.
Gari Jollof is a mixture of gari, palm nut oil with some salt and pepper for taste whiles ” Donkey Saliva” according to the students is a mixture of wheat flour, ground paste and other ingredients to form groundnut soup that is served with plain rice. A student said ” the only normal food on this campus is waakye and jollof. Aside from that, nothing that they will cook is of quality here.
Plain rice with groundnut soup is like water and rice. We are struggling here. Every week I seek support from my parents for chop money. ”
Headmasters and Headmistresses refused to explain the reason behind the gari jollof, it is purported that this menu is served because of food shortages. According to the students, they a fed up with always eating gari and would want a different food.
In other news, it situation is said to get worse in the coming days. People who completed SHS before Free SHS was introduced were interviewed on the trending menu gari jollof and donkey saliva.
Most of them testified that even at the time students were paying school fees, this food was still served so it does not cause for an alarm. Even those of us who paid school fees with our own money saff we ate gari how much more u wey government dey pay your school fees. We pay fees but eat gari, u are schooling free and u want jollof, u guy should have been given only water.
