FG moves to Restructure School Feeding Programme

The Nigerian Home Grown School Feeding Programme has received a boost with a partnership between the Federal Government and the Partnership for Child Development, Imperial College, London. Senior Special Assistant to the President on the Home Grown School Feeding Programme, Yetunde Adeniji, at a stakeholders’ workshop in Abuja, said the partnership aims to improve the programme’s efficiency and effectiveness in providing meals to school children across the country. 

President Bola Tinubu’s temporary suspension of all programmes of the National Social Investment Programme Agency for six weeks on January 12 led to increased scrutiny of its management and operations. 

A statement by the Director of Information, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Segun Imohiosen, said the suspension was based on the investigation of alleged malfeasance in the management of the agency and its programmes.

Adeniji added that the partnership includes launching a Value for Money Study to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the school feeding program, analyze its socio-economic impact, and ensure transparency and accountability in its implementation.
