We’ll Use N100 Billion to Feed Nigerian Children – Tinubu

According to President Bola Tinubu, N100 billion has been set aside for school food programs as part of the newly agreed N28.7 trillion 2024 budget component.

He said this on Monday at the State House in Abuja, during the signing of the 2024 appropriations bill into law.

According to Tinubu, the provision will act as a catalyst to promote student attendance and lessen the issue of out-of-school youth.

“One of the priority areas of the bill we just passed is the N100 billion provision for feeding school children. I believe that is a stimulant that will encourage enrollment and address malnutrition among school children.

“I will be meeting with local governments at sub-national levels so that we can collaborate and jointly implement an all-inclusive programme,” he said.

The President further stated that the budget known as “Renewed Hope” is based on a decrease in ongoing expenses and an increase in capital spending.

Remember when Tinubu ordered the school feeding program to be reinstituted and to be moved from the Humanitarian Ministry to the Ministry of Education in December?
