The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, has hinted of plans by the government to launch an ‘e-feeding’ programme next week to track daily menu across the country.
He explained that he will launch a digitised School Feeding Programme next month to track the number of students fed, the menu on daily basis to avoid future embezzlement of funds of the Programme.
Had said this while addressing students, authorities and participants at the 70th anniversary celebration of Fijai Senior High School in Takoradi in the Western Region.
He asserted that the current administration is doing so much in the transformation of the country.
In his view, Ghana is far ahead of the developed countries when it comes to digitization.
“We are coming late into the game and we are able to leap frog a lot of systems because we don’t have a legacy system and charged the students to reach for the sky in anything they set their minds on.
“We we should not let history of slavery and colonialism enslave our mind set.”
