DEPUTY EDUCATION MINISTER-DESIGNATE REAFFIRMS COMMITMENT TO QUALITY FOOD IN SHS

Hon. Professor Kingsley Nyarko, the Deputy Education Minister-Designate, has reiterated the Ministry’s unwavering commitment to maintaining the quality of food provided in Senior High Schools (SHS).

In response to concerns raised by Hon. Joseph Osei-Owusu, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Chairman of the Appointment Committee, regarding the standard of food served in SHS, Hon. Nyarko assured that the Government would not compromise on the quality of food provided to students. He stressed the importance of prioritizing the welfare of students, especially regarding basic needs such as food.

Hon. Nyarko also mentioned that the Ministry has initiated a nationwide fact-finding mission in response to public outcry following a documentary by Joy News. This mission aims to address concerns and ensure that students receive the best possible care and support in the educational sector.

He indicated his dedication to upholding high-quality standards as well as his commitment to ensuring the best for students in the Educational sector. He is the current member of parliament for the Kwadaso Constituency within the Ashanti Region of Ghana and has won his party’s primaries to run for a second term after an impressive showing as a first-timer.

Hon. Prof. Kingsley Nyarko seems to be a solid choice for the position because his background as a former Headmaster; former Lecturer at the University of Ghana; and former Secretary of the National Accreditation Board (NAB) of Ghana makes him well suited for the Education Ministry.

In addition to Hon. Nyarko, the Appointment Committee of Parliament vetted five other Presidential Nominees designated for various sector Ministries on the same day. These nominees included Hon. Alexander Akwasi Acquah for the Ministry of Health, Dr. Festus Awuah Kwofie for the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, Akwasi Konadu for the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, and Hon. Musah Abdul Aziz Ayaba for the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development.

Led by its Chairman, the first Deputy Speaker of Parliament, the Appointment Committee questioned the nominees on their Curriculum Vitae (CV), issues within their Ministries, and the support they intend to provide to their substantive Ministers to achieve development goals.
