The Executive director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare has finally exposed the finance Ministry and Akufo Addo government over the school feeding program initiative.
Speaking in a recent interview with TV3 Network, the Executive director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare revealed that, the ministry of finance hadn’ t released any money to the ministry of gender to be disbursed to caterers amidst the school feeding program.
In addition to this, the Executive director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare also revealed that the most celebrated school feeding program which was implemented by the Akufo Addo- Bawumia government with the help of the finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta rather harmed the country since it was politicized hence its challenges. ”
The school feeding caterers will have to also move to the ministry of finance and find out from the ministry of finance where the Ghc 880 or so million that he announced for the school feeding programs expansion is and where is the increment that they promised them.
The real issue is the liquidity issue. Money has not been released to the ministry of gender fir which they are refusing to release to caterers. So, we must put much more pressure on the ministry of finance to expedite action and disburse allocated funds per the budget.
Much of the challenges we are facing is because that program is a politicized one; the contractor knows that he got the contract based on merit and nepotistic considerations just because knowing someone is a political award” , the Executive director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare emphatically revealed.
