The Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has asked the government to let school heads to buy food for their individual Senior High Schools (SHS). Former President John Mahama has supported these requests.
Using Facebook, Mr. Mahama stated that the policy change is consistent with his position, which he declared in Navrongo in November 2020.
At the 61st annual conference in Accra, the call was made by Rev. Stephen Owusu Sekyere, National President of the CHASS.
He lamented the difficulties they had dealing with suppliers prior to food being delivered to their classrooms.
The President of CHASS stated that because of unpaid debt, they are suffering at the hands of their suppliers.
In order to offset the present rise in the cost of products and services, Rev. Sekyere also requested a large increase in the funding allotted for all activities.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer for 2024 offered support, stating that the demand is headed in the correct way.
According to Mr. Mahama, it would remove needless obstacles that prevent Ghanaian SHS pupils from receiving enough food.
