There’s a high possibility that senior high schools across the country would be shut down owing to food shortage which continues to worsen by the day.
In the meantime, the Education Ministry had said food supplies will reach the schools by Tuesday after the Upper West Regional Chapter of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) issued a 7-day ultimatum for the delivery to be made.
Unfortunately, JoyNews reports that the government is yet to fulfil that promise.
It has, however, emerged that the government failed to see this promise while the Education Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Kwesi Kwarteng insisted that there have been challenges with the delivery.
This has reportedly compounded the prevailing problem which is why schools will be closed down to concise with the nationwide strike by various teachers’ unions who are demanding for a better remuneration to meet up with the rising cost of living.
The Eastern Regional Chapter of CHASS is the latest to serve notice of a possible shutdown of the schools should government fail to deliver the supplies by the end of the week.
