School Feeding Programme was being operated illegally - AMA boss
Audrey Micah, Ghanadot

Accra, Sept 16, Ghanadot - The Chief Executive Officer of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Dr. Alfred Vanderpuiye, is alleging criminality in the operations of the School Feeding Programme.

In an interview on Peace FM, the Accra Mayor stated that  since the inception of the Programme by the previous administration, it has been illegally operated, directly from the Secretariat, instead of at the District level.

“This irregularity was perpetuated and also overlooked due to bad governance and the parochial interest of some people at the secretariat.

When we realized this anomaly, district committees were set up by the secretariat under the Chairmanship of the Major of Accra, to re-structure the whole programme.”

Commenting on the confusion that rocked the programme yesterday, the AMA mayor said, the decision to ask caterers to re-apply was borne out of the fact that two separate audit reports, one undertaken by the PricewaterhouseCoopers and the other by the Auditor General's Dept., revealed massive fraud and underhand dealings in the appointment of contracts, contrary to the guidelines of the programme.

Dr. Vanderpuiye stressed that “the contracts signed with the caterers are not permanent, since at the end of every academic year, performances will be evaluated.”
