We Spend 12 billion naira monthly On School Feeding - Buhari’s Govt

President Muhammadu Buhari's administration spends N12billion on the National Home-Grown School Feeding Programmes (NHGSFP) monthly under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development (MHADMSD).

This was made known by Dr Umar Bindir, the National Coordinator of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), of the Ministry, on Monday, at a two-day stakeholder's consultative workshop on the development of a national policy for NHGSFP in Abuja.

He said the school feeding programme is very expensive as over 10 million children are fed at the rate of N100 meal per child as approved by President Buhari, NAN reports.

Meanwhile, Minister of State for Education, Mr Emeka Nwajiuba has condemned the ongoing strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Education and Associated Institutions.
