The manager of the FCT Home-grown School Feeding Programme, Alhaji Kudu Dangana, has assured vendors of the scheme that the programme will be sustained in the territory despite the rising cost of foodstuff.

Alhaji Kudu said there had been an enrolment increase in rural schools, hence the determination of the FCT Administration (FCTA) to sustain it.

Alhaji Kudu, who was reacting to grumblings by cooks about the rising cost of food items and other technical challenges they faced in accessing their payment during an interface with the cooks and aggregators at the weekend, urged them to use the right channels of communication to present their grievances.

He said, “We are determined to sustain the school feeding programme because of its impact on school enrolment. Already, it has increased enrolment significantly, and despite the rising cost of foodstuff, we will sustain it.

“And by the grace of God, we want our cooks to be assured that everything will be okay, because together with the federal ministry of humanitarian affairs and disaster management and other stakeholders, all the concerns will be addressed.’’
