The enumeration committee of the Federal Government homegrown feeding program for public primary schools has uncovered 349 ghost schools in Nasarawa State.

The team leader of the committee and adviser to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Mallam Abdullahi Usman, disclosed this when he led the members of the committee on a courtesy call on Governor Abdullahi Sule at the Government House, Lafia,

He narrated that some of the officials were pocketing the money meant for school feeding programs in the state.
According to Usman, at the beginning of the program, 1,203 public primary schools were captured as benefiting schools.

“After due process of vetting, the committee discovered that 349 of such schools were ghost schools, with some officials pocketing the money meant for feeding these schools,” he stated.

He, however, maintained that following the discovery, top ministry officials in Abuja called for the removal of Nasarawa State from the scheme but the decision was rejected in order not to punish the poor children that would benefit from the scheme.
