The Federal Government has increased the cost of feeding a primary school pupil from N70 to N100.

FG sets to spend about N1bn daily to feed an estimated 10 million children benefiting from the scheme across the country.

It disclosed this in Abuja on Wednesday during a two-day national consultative meeting on public food procurement in the context of Nigeria’s National Home-Grown School Feeding Programme.

Through the NHGSFP, under the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, the government provides a meal daily for pupils in year one to three in government-owned primary schools.
