The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has asked the Federal Government and Central Bank of Nigeria to “provide spending details of public funds and private sector donations to provide socio-economic benefits to the country’s poorest and most vulnerable people, including details of beneficiaries of any cash payments, cash transfers, food distribution and other benefits during the lockdown in Abuja; Lagos and Ogun states because of COVID-19.”

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the programme which provides one meal per day to pupils in public primary school was introduced by President Muhammadu Buhari administration to boost enrolment and attendance in primary schools.

The Headmasters stated this when the National Social Investment Programme Focal Person in charge of Gombe State, Maryam Mele, visited their schools to monitor developments in the ongoing Home-Grown School Feeding Programme of the Federal Government.
