- Journalist, Kevin Taylor, says the School Feeding Coordinator threatened to expose the first lady and Chief of Staff
- Kevin alleges that Getrude Quarshigah was reinstated because of this threat
- The Minister for Gender described her previous termination letter as an “administrative error”
Broadcast Journalist, Kevin Taylor, is alleging that the reinstatement of the School Feeding boss was because she threatened to leave some information regarding the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, MyNewsGH reports.
“This woman told them point blank that if they have sacked her, she will leak a lot of information on some corrupt dealings of the Chief of Staff and the First Lady. That was when they called Adwoa Safo to reverse the termination,” he stated.
The Minister for Gender and Social Protection, Adwoa Sarfo, had earlier terminated the contract of Getrude Quarshiga as the National Coordinator for the School Feeding Program. The reasons for the termination were not made known.
A day after the termination, the minister sent another letter reinstating the National Coordinator. Adwoa Sarfo described her earlier termination letter as an “administrative error”.
