Bawumia announces e-feeding for students

Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia says government will soon launch an ‘e-feeding’ programme in the coming days to track daily menu across the country.

Dr. Bawumia speaking to students of Fijai Senior High School during their 70th anniversary celebration in Takoradi in the Western Region, said he will launch a digitized School Feeding Programme to track the number of students fed and the menu on daily basis.

This will help government to monitor and halt the embezzlement of funds of the Programme.

Dr. Bawumia claimed that in terms of digitisation, Ghana is far ahead of the developed countries and we need to embrace it and develop it further.

“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.”
