Efia Odo has blasted Ghanaian government for feeding final year school children with what many would refer to as trash.
The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison said final year Junior High School (JHS) students would be served varieties of rice dishes as promised by the government.
President Akufo-Addo in his 15th public address to the nation said JHS students who will be seating for the final exams (Basic Education Certificate Examination) will be served with free hot meals on the daily.
These hot meals will be served for both private and public school students across the length and breadth of the country.
Following this announcement, the minister has clarified what foods will be served by saying Waakye, Jollof and plain rice will be the only dishes. She added that ‘Waakye’ will be served twice every week.
Mrs Morrision added that schools that are already charging feeding fees will be made to supply the students with snacks instead since the government’s free meals will augment their efforts.
However, the photos of the food that came out was very distasteful thereby forcing many people to react.
Efia Odo after a viral video of a student questioning the government on whether their kids would be allowed to eat that equally tweeted:
“GOVERNMENT WILL YOU ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO EAT THAT CRAP YOU CALL FOOD ??? I wouldn’t even give my dog that shit!”
Her tweet is trending all over.
