We Spent N245million Monthly On Feeding Of Boarding Students – Jigawa State Government

Jigawa state’s Commissioner for Education, Rabi Ishaq has disclosed that the government has raised its feeding allocation for boarding students daily from N90 to N135 per person.

While speaking to newsmen in Dutse the Rabi said that the total amount spent on feeding amounted to N245million. She dismissed rumours that government was planning to de-board all boarding students in the state due the economic recession facing the country. 

“Our commitment has not changed. And there is no plan by the present administration to end the school boarding system. “We are doing a lot of things other states are not doing, especially in the area of students’ feeding. “As I am talking to you now, Governor Muhammad Badaru has approved an increase in the amount being spent to feed boarding students across the state. “Henceforth, each student is fed with N135 and not N90 as it was before,” the commissioner explained.
