President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led government has reintroduced a school feeding programme to address the challenges of out-of-school children.
The directive was given by President Tinubu.
Recall that the administration of ex-President by Muhammadu Buhari had suspended the programme after years of running it.
President Tinubu, however, ordered its restoration, saying it would help in checking the learning crisis.
He said if the learning crisis was not tackled, it would be difficult to address the challenges of out-of-school children.
The Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman, disclosed this 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 the Ministry of Humanitarian and returned to the Ministry of Education.
