The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has reversed the sacking of the Ghana School Feeding Coordinator, Mrs Gertrude Quashigah, some three days after giving the widow of the late Courage Quashigah her marching orders.
In a letter addressed to Mrs Quashigah titled: ‘Withdrawal of Termination Appointment’ and dated Thursday, 20 May 2021, the Dome Kwabenya MP said: “I write in respect of the above subject matter”.scan0002
“This is to inform you of my decision to withdraw my earlier letter dated 18 May 2021”.
“I wish to state that my earlier letter was as a result of an administrative error”, she stated.
However, some sources have told ClassFMonline.com that the reversal of the termination of the appointment came after the presidency intervened after news of Mrs Quashigah’s sacking broke.
Mrs Quashigah was appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo in December 2019.
The appointment was communicated to Mrs Quashigah by the President’s Executive Secretary Nana Asante Bediatuo via a letter dated 24 December 2019, which said: “I’m pleased to inform you that the President has appointed you as the national coordinator of the Ghana School Feeding Programme under the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection”.
“The terms and conditions of your appointment shall be communicated to you by the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, who, by this letter is duly notified of your appointment”.
“I take this opportunity to congratulate you formally on your appointment”.
