We are really in hard and difficult times, but it is sometimes mind-boggling to see and hear certain things that currently happening in our motherland.
However, there is one fundamental thing we need to understand about politics. It is a game - full of mysterious undercovers and interesting scenes.
Everyone enters that game centre to win, and win big. No one ever would like to fail in that gaming environment, and even if all the conditions and results prove that one is losing, he or she may device a new strategy to overturn the process in their favour.
Politics is not all that bad as we mostly think, but one key thing that distinguishes a bad politician from a good one is that the former always does things for his or her personal aggrandizement & selfish interest whilst the latter puts the masses (the entire citizenry) first in all things.
It is extremely difficult to identify the good ones because they all seem to be wearing the same suit and following the processes of "blood sucking agents".
Frankly, it appears that every sector of the economy is severely suffering and dwindling - ranging from religion to education to security to energy to finance, etc.
We tend to ascribe all these continuous challenges to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we can all admit that some countries have put in place very effective and efficient mechanisms to mitigate the impact of the virus, and improve the livelihoods of their citizens.
In our quest of enhancing food security and reducing hunger particularly, which is perfectly in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals on hunger, poverty and malnutrition, the National School Feeding Programme was introduced.
This special and impactful initiative is strongly part of the Third Pillar of the Comprehensive Africa Development Programme.
This is a very great programme that needs to be effectively administered, managed and controlled by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education & Ministry of Agriculture, with a complementary efforts from the Ghana Health Service, philanthropists, and other key stakeholders.
However, just as fraud, misappropriation of funds, theft and other mismanagement practices usually occur in almost all the public services or private institutions, the Minisiter of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Sarah Adwoa Safo, Esq recently issued a letter, ordering the Coordinator for the Ghana School Feeding Programme, Mrs. Gertrude Quashigah to resign from post with immediate effect.
Copy of the dismissal letter dated May 18, 2021
Meanwhile, in response to her removal from office, the Government has today, May 21, 2021 ordered Hon. Adwoa Safo to reinstate her, and withdraw the termination letter.
Following the Government's intervention in that case, a lot Ghanaians have reacted massively on social media, and it appears that the comments never stop flowing.
It has become non-stop, with divergent views and opinions & mixed reactions, after Roland Walker shared the story on his Facebook page.
Below are some of the comments from Ghanaians:
