The Minister of Education Dr Yaw Osei  Adutwum has said most of the state-owned senior high schools have received food items after weeks of shortages in the system.

Responding to questions in Parliament, he confirmed that the government owes the National Food Buffer Stock Company an outstanding amount of GHC 340 million resulting in a shortage of food items in some high schools in the country.



Appearing on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (27 July), Adutwum said the government was working towards clearing the debt and ending the food shortage in the schools.

“Yesterday, I had a zoom conference call with the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS),  regional directors of GES and TVET service and every region confirmed that items have come in or are coming in,” the minister said.

“Buffer stock is readying itself to begin to reinvent their supply chain system to make sure that the supplies are regular. They did procurement at the local level and from Upper West to Upper East all the way to Ashanti and Greater Accra, they all said they are getting the items that they need.

“I am sure if you call them they will tell you, the items that are in short supply are now coming, so that is a cashflow, supply chain system and it is not about the budget,” Adutwum said.
