kufo-Addo directs Gender Minister to provide hot meals for JHS final year students
President Akufo-Addo says he has instructed the Gender Minister to provide one hot meal a day for JHS final year students in both private and public schools.
The President said this when he addressed the nation for the 15th time since Ghana recorded its first two cases of the coronavirus in March.
The President said some final year JHS students are going hungry as a result of adherence to the COVID-19 safety protocols. It is for this reason that he said he has instructed the Gender Minister to begin preparations to ensure that, from 24th August to 18th September, 584, 000 final year students across the country and 146,000 staff are provided with one hot meal a day.
