Pupils under the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme in Niger State are allegedly being fed with expired rice.

They are also purportedly being served a quarter of an egg for their meals instead of a full egg.

This is from findings gotten by some members of the Niger State House of Assembly, who claimed the programme in the State is shrouded in a lot of malpractices and sharp practices from officials and vendors in the State.

Raising a motion on matter of urgent importance during plenary, the Member representing Suleja Constituency, Honorable Liman Iya told the House that the children were given poor and under nutritious meals by the officials.

According to him, serving the kids such kind of meals would defeat the purpose of the program in the state.

He stated, “we wonder why primary school pupils in the state are server with poor and under nutritious meals. We are disturbed by this as it will defeat the purpose of the program.
