Extend school feeding programs to all JHS – Hon Daniel Owusu Brempong to Government
The constituency secretary for NDC of Berekum west district in the Brong Ahafo region, Hon Daniel Owusu Brempong has stated that, the introduction of school feeding programs into schools was a nice policy by former President John Agyekum kuffour administration.
According to Hon Daniel Owusu Brempong, the school feeding programs starts from KG to class Six and also continued from SHS one to SHS three whereby JHS students are being neglected.
He further said, JHS are the critical areas where teenage pregnancy occurs and most cases hardship conditions exist.
” The JHS students are from time to time given folic acid and students are being advice to eat before taking such drugs and sometimes they feel unhappy” He hinted.
He is therefore appealing to the government to include JHS students into the school feeding programs to let them have their share in the National cake.
