Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has promised to launch an ‘e-feeding’ program next week to track the daily menu across the country.

Addressing students, authorities, and participants during the 70th-anniversary celebration of Fijai Senior High School in Takoradi in the Western Region, the Vice President said he will launch a digitized School Feeding Programme next month to track the number of students fed and the menu on daily basis to avoid future embezzlement of funds of the program.

He also challenged the critics of the government that the Akufo-Addo-led administration is doing so much in the transformation of the country and as such, critics should desist from criticizing the efficacy of the digitization of the School Feeding Programme indiscriminately.

Dr. Bawumia claimed that in terms of digitization, Ghana is far ahead of the developed countries and we need to embrace it and develop it further.

“We are coming late into the game and we can leapfrog a lot of systems because we don’t have a legacy system and charged the students to reach for the sky in anything they set their minds on,” he said.

“We should not let the history of slavery and colonialism enslave our mindset,” Dr. Bawumia said.

The Vice President disclosed that government will launch new drone centers next week in Afram Plains and Ketekrachi.

He also said that Ghana is leading the world in drone systems and now, Ghana is worth emulating by the west.

“Now people are coming to recruit Ghanaians who are into drones,” he indicated.
