Re:COVID-19:Hot meals costing Gh₵2m per day-NADMO reveals…
On the Gh₵2m being spent a day on the feeding,I was explaining to the journalist interviewing me that the food was enough for the average Tommy, and that it was of quality and it’s on the average ghc5 per pack,then the host moved straight to say then government is spending Gh₵20m a day on the feeding,I asked how did he get that,then he said he multiplied the Gh₵5 by the 400,000 estimated people that are fed each day.
I immediately told him 400,000 by 5 is Gh₵2m and not Gh₵20m.
That’s all,then Bingo!!!
The next thing I knew,it was the headline.
I was not interrogated on the cost of food,he jumped into that conclusion by doing the arithmetic, which he got wrong and I helped correct.
The structure for the meals preparation is such that each of the forty lockdown Districts prepare food for the VULNERABLE IN their catchment area.
