The National Coordinator of the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP), Gertrude Quashigah, has been fired.
The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Sarah Adwoa Safo, terminated her appointment on Tuesday 18 May 2021.
She has been ordered to handover any official document in her custody to the chief director of the Gender Ministry.
“You will be paid one month’s salary in lieu of notice as stipulated in your contract agreement,” the letter said.
“We appreciate your support towards the execution of the mandate of the Ghana School Feeding Programme during the period,” it added.
No reasons were given for her dismissal.
However, Asaaseradio.com‘s sources at the Ghana National School Feeding Programme said “there are a lot of issues bedeviling the programme under her watch including non payment of caterers, poor working relationship with directors of the programme and her deputy, taking unilateral decisions without consulting the minister.”
Quashigah is yet to comment on her exit.
