Senior Special Assistant SSA to President Bola Tinubu on School Feeding, Dr Yetunde Adeniji, has commended the president for earmarking N100 billion for the programme in the 2024 budget, saying it is a demonstration of his compassion for children.

In a statement Wednesday in Abuja, Dr Adeniji said; “The 28.7 trillion 2024 budget signed into law by President Bola Tinubu on the 1st of this month is one of empathy and compassion as far as the N100billion allocated for School Feeding programme is concerned.

“It clearly demonstrates Mr President’s unwavering dedication to the well-being and upliftment of the Nigerian people”.

She said the president’s decision to reintroduce the school feeding programme would help tackle the menace of out of school children.

“I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Mr President for his visionary decision to reintroduce the National Home Grown School Feeding Program (NHGSFP) which will play a crucial role in removing children from the streets including improved enrollment and enhancing the socioeconomic activities of the host communities where these schools are situated.

“Additionally, the substantial allocation of funds in the 2024 budget reflects the importance placed on this initiative”, she stressed.

She further assured President Tinubu and Nigerians generally that the allocation would be judiciously utilized for the actualization of the renewed hope agenda.
