    We have spent N6bn on school feeding programme In 14 states - Federal Government

    The Nigerian Federal Government has announced that 14 states have benefitted from the school feeding programme set up by the President Buhari's administration.

    In a statement by Laolu Akande the spokesperson to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, the Presidency also noted that it is now close to its target of feeding three million primary school children in 2017, under the National Homegrown School Feeding Programme.


    “In fulfillment of its plan to ramp up the Social Investment Programmes (SIP), this year, the Buhari administration is now close to its target of feeding three million primary school children this year under the National Homegrown School Feeding Programme, one of its four ongoing SIP schemes.  Specifically, at the last count, a total of N6,204,912,889 has been paid out to 14 states during the school year ending August 2017.  The 14 states that have been covered under the School Feeding programme are Anambra, Enugu, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ebonyi, Zamfara, Delta, Abia, Benue, Plateau, Bauchi, Taraba and Kaduna. So far, a total of 2,827,501 school children are currently benefiting from the School Feeding Programme, which is well on course to achieve the Federal Government’s projection to feed over three million pupils this year.”
