Lagos Unveils Plan To Commence Homegrown Feeding Programme
The Federal Government Home Grown Feeding Programme will soon commence in Lagos, the Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule has said.
She said this at the 2018 Ministerial news conference to mark the third year in office of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration.
She said that the final steps of the programme are being put in place to ensure that once it takes off, it will run smoothly and hitch-free to cater for the large student population in Lagos.
According to her, the number of students in Lagos State schools alone is about the number of students in five or six States put together. “We just have to plan properly to ensure no student is left out,” she added.
”I’m happy to announce to you that we have engaged office in charge at the Federal level, as well as the State Ministries of Agriculture and Health. We are on course”.
Reeling out achievements in the year under review, Deputy Governor, Adebule said that the State government awarded car loans to 491 teachers to the tune of about N40 million, adding that N30 million housing loan was approved for 38 teaching staff as a welfare package to increase productivity and inspire better performance.
