The Presidency on Sunday said it has so far spent N3.7bn on the Homegrown School Feeding Programme, which is one of the components of the present administration’s Social Investment Programme.
 
It said the sum had been released to nine out of the 36 states of the federation for the feeding of about 1.3million pupils in the states.
 
The Senior Special Assistant to the acting President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja.
 
A total of N500bn was allocated to the SIP in the 2016 budget while the same amount had been provided for it in the yet-to-be signed 2017 Appropriation Bill.
 
The feeding programme is projected to feed over three million pupils this year. Akande named the nine benefitting states as Anambra, Enugu, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ebonyi, Zamfara, Delta and Abia.
 
He said the states had, at the last count, received various sums in tranches while 14, 574 cooks had been engaged in the communities where the schools were located.
 
He added that the money was paid directly from the Federal Government’s coffers to the cooks with a slight variation in Osun State, where some of the food items like eggs were bought centrally by an aggregator.
 
He said, “The overall payments to each of the nine states and the breakdown figures of how many children have been fed so far are as follows:
