The Government Cannot Send Our Children To School And Leave Them Hungry -Kwesi Pratt Boldly Declares

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), has raised an alarm of food shortages in various Senior High Schools across the country.

The General Secretary of GNAT, Thomas Musah, indicated that most Headmasters in those senior High Schools are afraid to speak up.

The ultimatum, which was given by GNAT to the government to curtail the issues of food shortages elapsed yesterday, 1st September 2021. Their next line of action is yet unknown.

The veteran journalist and the Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Junior, has said that the government cannot send children to Senior High Schools and then leave them hungry.

Kwesi Pratt made this statement on 'Good Morning Africa' on Pan Africa television this morning when he reacted to the statement by the General Secretary of GNAT about shortages of food in some Senior High Schools.

According to Kwesi Pratt, he is not alarmed by just the shortage of food at the Senior High Schools, but he is alarmed that the affected school's administrators cannot speak up.

Kwesi Pratt indicated that the government has sent our children to school, and they are starving. He said that he has seen videos of schoolchildren suffering because there is no money to buy food for them.

He asked that if GNAT is saying that the Heads of the institutions are frightened and cannot talk, how are we to know what is happening in our schools if the authorities are afraid to speak up?

He revealed that these schools belong to the people of Ghana and the students are the children of Ghanaians, so we need to know what is happening in those schools.

"The government cannot send children to school and leave them hungry. I am worried about this situation."

He said that GNAT told us that the deadline for their ultimatum is yesterday, and as of now, we don't know what is happening. He doesn't know what GNAT has decided to do about it, but there is a suggestion that it may lead to a strike. He thinks GNAT going on strike is the best option currently.

He added that he is happy that at least the General Secretary of GNAT has dared to speak up even as heads of institutions have been cowed into silence.
