BREAKING: Tinubu reintroduces school feeding programme

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has asked that the school feeding programme be restored to address the difficulties of out-of-school children.

After many years of operation, the initiative was terminated by former President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Tinubu, on the other hand, ordered its reactivation, claiming that it would aid in combating the learning issue.

He said if learning crisis is not tackled, it will be difficult to address the challenges of out of school children.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Education, Prof Tahir Mamman, during a one-day retreat on quick wins in the middle Ministerial deliverables from 2023 to 2027.

According to the minister, the president directed that the school feeding programme be removed from Ministry of Humanitarian and returned to the Ministry of Education.

The Minister said the essence of the retreat was to find ways of implementing all the policies developed to tackle the challenges and to distil responsibility to different agencies responsible for overturning the out of school children problem.
