Four members of the Committee for Joint Action (CJA), a political pressure group, have petitioned the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the management and affairs of the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP).

According to them, there were serious cases of maladministration, official malfeasance and other improprieties at the secretariat and within the operational structures of the GSFP.

The petition, filed on behalf of the four persons by their lawyers at Deleric Law Consult, said the offences were committed by public officials who had been entrusted with public funds and other resources.

The four members are Mr Kwesi Pratt Jnr, Mr Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa, Mr Ato Ahwoi and Alhaji Ramadan.

“Their behaviour has occasioned breaches of their duty to the state and led to threat to the life and health of citizens of Ghana and misuse of public funds”, it indicated.

The petitioners said their conclusion was based on the report of an audit carried out by Price Waterhouse Coopers, a reputable audit firm, in which report the auditors recommended further investigations.
