The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has given the security man at GHANASS, Koforidua in the Eastern Region a cash reward for GHs 5,000.
This is to appreciate him for stopping the school’s matron from stealing food items means for the Free SHS program.
Kennedy Agyapong, who made the promise to reward the man, met him this week to honour his promise.
While commending the man for the effort, he encouraged him to continue to serve well in the interest of the school and the country.
The senior matron of the school was caught stealing of some foodstuffs meant for the students and selling them outside.
Madam Comfort Oduro Bruce was reportedly caught red-handed by the chief security man of the school, Kofi Kanjagan, when she and the driver (one Alfred) was transporting the foodstuffs with the Regional Ghana Education Service vehicle with registration number, GN 6717-15, over the weekend.
He said on 16th November, 2017, at 7pm, the matron packed the big truck with sacks of gari, cartons of milk, rice, tins of Milo, cartons of tomatoes, among other items.
Mr. Kanjagan claimed she was allegedly assisted by one of her staff, Appiah, who later confessed to the Brong-Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe aka Abronye DC.
The security man added that after the incident he called the headmaster and even wrote an official report to him that very night but he (headmaster) refused to cause their arrest and allowed them to transport the foodstuffs away.
Mr. Kanjagan indicated further that thereafter a five-member committee comprising the two assistant headmasters, senior house master and mistress and the bursar was setup by the headmaster, Rev Abraham Osei Donkor, to investigate the matter. He maintained that after the investigation, the report has been kept inside the headmaster’s drawer and has refused to take action on it.
