The Kogi State government said it has recruited 2, 200 caterers to handle cooking in the first and second phases of the Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP) in the state.

Special Adviser to the Governor on Special Projects and Kogi SIP Focal Person, Mr Abdulkareem Onyekehi, disclosed this at a sensitisation programme and official resumption of HGSFP, organised for the recruited caterers in the state.

He noted that the programme began in Kogi on Feb. 8, 2019, with 62,559 pupils in public schools in 18 LGAs, but was later suspended due to issues of non-adherence to the national guidelines in some North-Central states. He, however, said that Kogi State has been cleared by the national office to resume the programme.

According to him, a total of 850 caterers were already captured, recruited and trained for the programme, while additional 1, 296 caterers have been recruited in Batch B.

In his remarks, Governor Yahaya Bello, who was represented by Edward Onoja, encouraged the caterers to do their job diligently, and not ‘cut corners’, saying the feeding was meant for children and not adults. He urged the women to go back to their various communities to mobilise support for the governor’s re-election bid.
