Dramatic Increase In Attendance In Cape Coast Schools As ‘Hot Meals’ Continue

Published

on


President Akufo Addo’s directive to provide all Junior High School (JHS) students and staff with daily ‘hot meals’ have seen a dramatic increase in attendance in various schools in Cape Coast.

A visit to various schools by the Ghana News Agency on Tuesday saw students showing more commitment to attendance, with more confidence and determination to succeed.

Some authorities of Bakatsir JHS who spoke on anonymity described the initiative as excellent, adding that three seriously truant students had returned to school because of the free food.

“All the 22 final year students are here and have finished eating their banku with stew and fish. Even some three truant students who have refused to be in school after all persuasion have amazingly returned to school. The children are happy and I am happy as well,” a teacher said.

Head Teacher of St. Augustine’s JHS, Madam Gladys Ama Cromwell said, “some students went home to inform their truant colleagues about the intervention and for once, all my students are present. They appear happy and hopeful and we hope the intervention will be sustained to shore up students enrollment and retention.”

A 15-year-old boy at Jacob Wilson Sey JHS who vigorously rolled his tongue in the mouth beaming with infectious smiles of hope, commended President Akufo-Addo for the bold decision saying, “it feels good to be a JHS student at this time.

Ghana Not Declared HIPC, Disregard Rumours – Oppong Nkrumah

Published

on


Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has rubbished reports on social media which suggested Ghana has been declared part of the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) globally by the World Bank.

Speaking at the Nation Building Updates on Tuesday in Accra, Oppong Nkrumah noted that the said reports are fake and being shared by malicious persons who seek to run government down because it’s an election year.

He said “there are suggestions being spread particularly on social media that Ghana has been declared HIPC again and I am sure you would have noticed that a lot of persons are sharing materials on social media that the IMF or World Bank has declared Ghana HIPC or listed Ghana as one of the HIPC countries and it is a suggestion that the economy is not as good a shape that we claim it is.

“For the avoidance of doubt and because we have also mentioned that we are aware that some persons in the weeks ahead of the elections will seek to spread a lot of false information and fake news, it is important to quickly respond to it right here and right now. Categorically, we say to you it is not true that Ghana has been declared HIPC or has been added to the list of HIPC countries,” he added.

Justice Wuni Was Bias Towards ‘Innocent’ Kennedy Agyapong – Supreme Court

Published

on


The Supreme Court has cited bias as reason for taking High Court judge, Justice Wuni off from Presiding over a contempt case against Assin Central legislator, Kennedy Agyapong.

The Supreme Court explained that Justice Wuni by the use of the phrase ‘severely punished’ in a contempt summons to Mr Agyapong exhibited bias and an already formed opinion on the deserved punishment for the legislator who remains innocent until proven guilty.

“It demonstrates prejudice, bias and in fact amounts to grave judicial indiscretion for a judge to form an opinion on the severity or leniency of punishment to impose on a person who is presumed innocent until proven guilty,” the court stated.

This was contained in a 31-page judgement detailing the reasons why a five-member panel of the apex court prohibited Justice Wuni from presiding over the MP’s contempt trial.
