The federal government had ordered the indefinite closure of educational institutions nationwide as a part of measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Meanwhile, the ministry of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development said the list of all participating vendors in the modified School Feeding Programme are going to be submitted to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

 

The Humanitarian Affairs minister, Sadiya Farouq, who said this at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 daily news briefing on Friday in Abuja, noted that it had been for the aim of transparency and accountability.

 

She said the modified school feeding programme was being funded by the federal government, implemented by states and facilitated by the ministry.

 

The minister said it had been targeted at heads of households, guardians and caregivers of the pupils, already taking advantage of the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP).

 

She noted that the vendors had been on the programme since inception which they weren’t new.

 

She said that the ministry had also invited Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to assist with monitoring of events.

 

In another report, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has described as a misplaced priority the choice by the federal government to continue feeding pupils at home, vowing to stage “a mother of all protest” if the plan isn’t retraced.

 

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Friday, May 15, Danielson Akpan, NANS president labelled the plan as an effort to siphon the country’s fund as there are many initiatives government can consider during coronavirus crisis, Tribune reports.

 

How 57 company workers tested positive for COVID-19 in Oyo state Akpan wondered how the govt would justify withdrawing N697 million it proposed to spend daily which accurately amount to N13.5 billion a month.
