Where is the Cash?

Where is the money? There appears to be a mystery about the allocation of feeding grants for public second cycle schools in the three northern regions.
While the Ghana Education Service (GES) claims that about 80 per cent of the grants has already been released, the news from the area is that no feeding grant has been disbursed and have therefore asked the Ministry of Education to ensure the immediate release of the funds to heads of institutions.

Mr Robert Ajene, a former headmaster of Bawku Secondary School, recently expressed concern about the wanton delays in the release of feeding grants to schools in the three northern regions. Speaking at the 40th anniversary of the Bawku Secondary School at the weekend, he said it was a drawback to the advancement of education in the north.
Addressing a news conference in Accra yesterday, the national chairman of the Bolgatanga, Nangodi Bongo and Tongo (BONABOTO) Association, Mr Thomas Akabzaa, alleged that students in all boarding institutions in the three regions had been at home for the past two weeks due to the scholarship secretariat failure to release grants.
He noted that the disruption of the academic calendar was particularly worrying, considering the fact that senior secondary school certificate examinations were just about a month away.
Mr Akabzaa, who is also a lecturer at the University of Ghana, observed that the issue of feeding grants had become a perennial problem and therefore called for a permanent solution to it.
