Minister of Humanitarian and Disaster Management, Sadiya Farouk, has accused some governors of sabotaging the school home grown feeding system.
Speaking on the Channelstv news monitored yesterday, Ms. Farouk said what she meant by intrigue in the system when she met with the senate committee has to do with the figures of public primary schools being churned out by the governors which was at variance with the National Bureau of Statistics.
She maintains that since the schools were under the purview of the state governors,they ought to know the exact number.
“What I meant by intrigue is that there’s is conflicting figures between the ones supplied by state governors who are the owners of these public primary schools and the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, when we sent them to do the census, so we find it difficult which figures to believe. But we are trying to reconcile it and hope to get it right.”
On the cash conditional transfer to the poorest of the poor, Sadiya said her ministry relied on the list generated through the world bank in 2016, stressing that it would be improved upon to capture all the states in the country.
It will be recalled that the special investment program was under the office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo until 2019, when a full ministry of humanitarian and disaster management was created to take over the program.
