The Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, has put in measures to resolve the recent food shortage that confronted some Senior High Schools (SHS) in the country.

Reports from some SHSs last week indicated food supply was in shortage which had the tendency to have schools closed down.

Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum Sunday, July 10 met with the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) to address the issue.

It was resolved at the meeting that by Tuesday, July 12, 2022, all affected schools would be supplied with the needed food.

Public Relations Officer for the Education Ministry, Kwasi Kwarteng has been explaining to the media, the resolution at the meeting and the next step forward.

“Recently there have been some media reportage on potential food shortage across some selected schools within the country. Reference is made to schools within the Upper West region.

“Today the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum after a meeting with the leadership of CHASS has resolved the issue and consequently, food is being supplied to the affected schools to curtail a potential shortage of such food items within the various schools.

“The issue has been resolved and we hope that by Tuesday 12th July, we get the situation under normalcy,” he noted.
