Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has queried the plans of the federal government to continue its National Homegrown feeding program.
Recall that the Federal Government disclosed that the school feeding programme for pupils in primary schools will commence this week in four states.
Reacting to this news, the former lawmaker expressed that when the thousands of children troop out to be fed, they will violate all known coronavirus preventive measures.
He urged the federal government to reconsider its plan and instead focus on feeding the parents.
See his tweet below:
Asking thousands of children to troop out for food in a typical public primary school will violate and desecrate all the known preventive #COVID19 measures.Feed not the Children with the food and the virus.When you feed the parents,the Children will be fed.
