Zamfara Government says it spends N3.6 billion yearly on the feeding of 180,000 students in public secondary schools across the state.

Alhaji Atiku Maradun, the Executive Secretary, Zamfara State Feeding Agency, disclosed this to journalists on Wednesday in his office.

Maradun said that the 180,000 students were drawn from 216 boarding and day secondary schools.

He said that the programme was introduced by former Gov. Ahmed Sani and sustained by his successor, Gov. Mamuda Shinkafi and the present administration of Gov. Abdulaziz Yari.

The executive secretary said that it was introduced to encourage school enrolment, especially from less privileged homes, adding that the agency had set up three standing committees to monitor the programme.

According to him, each committee is being headed by a commissioner in the agency, who oversees one senatorial district in the state.
