Students of the Gbeogo School for the Deaf in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region have expressed dissatisfaction with the school’s ongoing issues with food quality.
They claim that food quality and quantity have declined in recent years, but the government has not responded to their numerous concerns.
The school prefect, Abugri John Akuka, communicating with our reporter Moses Apiah during a visit to the school in sign language, noted that the majority of the students usually find it difficult to eat the meals served to them because of the poor taste.
Meanwhile, the school authorities, when asked about the problem, noted that for some time, the government has not released the capitation grant for the purchase of food items.
Acknowledging that they were aware of the students’ predicament, they emphasized that the situation was beyond their control.
“Yes, we are aware of the challenge regarding the quality of food prepared. But, my brother, there is nothing we can do. The government has not yet released a capitation grant for the purchase. So, what can we do?”
