President Akufo-Addo has announced the provision of free hot meals to both private and public Junior High School (JHS) pupils as they prepare and seat for their final exams.

He made this announcement in his 15th televised address to the nation on issues surrounding Coronavirus and the measures been taken by the government to alleviate the hardship the pandemic has brought on the citizenry.

On the back of that, the President has instructed the Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister, Cynthia Morrison to begin preparations to ensure that, as from 24th August up to 18th September all 584,000 JHS pupils, 146,000 staff, both in public and private schools, be given one hot meal a day.

“As a result of reports I have recently received that some final year JHS students were going hungry, in complying with COVID-19 protocols, I have just instructed the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection to begin preparations to ensure that, as from 24th August up to 18th September, all five hundred and eighty-four thousand (584,000) final year JHS students, and one hundred and forty-six thousand (146,000) staff, both in public and private schools, be given one hot meal a day. This is to ensure full observance of the COVID-19 safety protocols.” President Akufo-Addo said.

However, many concerns have been raised by many who believe giving out food to these pupils is not the right and ideal thing to do especially with how money was spent on the provision of the same food to vulnerable people during the Coronavirus-induced lockdown.
