Governor El-Rufai abandons school feeding “for now” | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


Governor Nasir el Rufai of Kaduna State, Wednesday said the state would no longer continue its controversial School Feeding Programme, (FBS) which was costing the state N1.1 billion to serve 1.8 million pupil one meal in seven months.

 The Governor said that since the state was yet to get reimbursement from the Office of the Vice President, it the programme stood suspended until that was done.

 In another surprising pronouncement, the governor said it would no longer rehabilitate the thousands of dilapidated Schools and their classrooms across the state, saying he would instead erect brand new schools in their place from 2017 to 2019.

The Governor made these revelations during his budget presentation at Kaduna State House of Assembly, Kaduna.

  4. Our government's bring policies which can not be sustained. We waist previous resources on programs that do not have a life of their own.

    Without a solid agricultural program in the state to provide the necessary food crops to the government at very subsidized rates, how do you expect to keep up with the scheme.

  5. Mr el rufai are you a normal thinking human bbeing, just listen to your self why did you start the first place ? You owe the teachers to feed the pupils are you not an illitrate with certificate ? First class illitrate llike you . We understand that Buhari did not go to school so nobody expect him to achieve any thing the first place but it beat my imagination for some one like you to think like an ass hole ( brainless )

  6. Why would he do it now when he knows he can do it a week before his relection and our fickle public will be happy and vote for him. Is it his fault that nigerians are gullible?

  7. Let us make logic reasoning a compulsory subject from pry. to university level. Then, the politicians will not find it easy to play on people's intelligence.
