The Senior Special Assistant to President Bola Tinubu on School Feeding Programme ( SFP) , Dr Yetunde Adeniji , has commended him for allocating N100 billion to the programme in the 2024 budget .

This was contained in a  statement  by Olumobi Adewale from the office of the SSA in Abuja  yesterday.

Adeniji said the N100 billion allocation clearly showed the empathy the president has for children of the poor in the country.

 “The N28.7 trillion 2024 budget signed into law by President Bola Tinubu on the 1st of this month , is one of empathy and compassion as far as the N100 billion allocated for school feeding programme is concerned.

“It clearly demonstrates Mr President’s  unwavering dedication to the wellbeing and uplift of the Nigerian people,” she said.

She further commended Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda, stressing the energy, strength, capacity, empathy, and compassion that he has consistently demonstrated in leading Nigeria.

She said: “I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Mr President for his visionary decision to reintroduce the SFP which will play a crucial role in removing children from the streets and enhancing the socioeconomic activities of the host communities where these schools are situated.

“Additionally, the substantial allocation of funds in the 2024 budget reflects the importance placed on this initiative.”

The president’s aide accordingly assured Tinubu and  Nigerians generally that the allocation would be judiciously utilised for the actualisation of the renewed hope agenda of the current administration.
