As part of efforts to improve the implementation of the Home Grown School Feeding Programme for pupils of public primary schools in the state, the Federal Government, in collaboration with the Abia State Government, is embarking on a comprehensive enumeration of Head Teachers, teachers, cooks and all pupils in primary 1-3 in the 1,020 public primary schools in the state, from Tuesday 27th July to 13th August 2021.
The State Focal Person, Social Investment Programme, Chinenye Nwaogu, in a press statement made available to newsmen, advised Head Teachers and parents to ensure that all concerned pupils were captured in the exercise.
He further advised: “All Schools are to remain open from 8 am to 2 pm each day while we enjoin all stakeholders to support the exercise.”
It would be recalled that Abia State Government under Governor Okezie Ikpeazu started the program which was adopted by the Federal Government.
However, while the Federal Government limited it to primary 1 -3, Abia State Government extended it to primary 4 -6 to accommodate more pupils.
