Mr. Bello Matawallen, the Zamfara state governor, angry with the poor meal been given to children in the name of the school feeding programme has forced teachers to eat the same food or face dismissal.
The governor who was at the Government Science Secondary School and Government Girls’ Secondary School Gusau, found out the terrible meal given to the kids. Angry with the development he forced both teachers and food vendors to eat the same food.
Matawalle angry directed that going forward principals and the feeding officers throughout the state must eat the same food they cook for their students or be dismissed.
The governor, who was angry over the poor food giving to the children, wondered why that will happen despite a huge amount of money expended by the state on the programme.
Matawalle warned that his administration would deal with anybody who is responsible for such a huge fraud in the management of the scheme.
Zamfara is not the only offender, across the Nigerian state, there is huge corruption in the management of the school feeding programme.
Some persons in Kaduna state, who spoke to WEST AFRICA REPORTERS (WAR) explained how the state school feeding programme is characterized by huge corruption with some teacher and food vendors turning it into a money-making venture while the kids who are the primary beneficiaries suffer.
