The Nigerian federal government has ordered the surveillance of contractors engaged in the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme, NHGSFP, expected to start across the country beginning with Abuja, this Thursday. The agencies in charge of this surveillance are Department of State Service, DSS, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC, the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB as well as civil society and non-governmental organisations.
This came even as it said it had set up what it called “Field personnel and monitoring teams” to move to all areas affected by the exercise to monitor compliance to its guidelines by people it engaged for the programme.
They further explained that the programme is anticipated to benefit 3.1 million households in the nation , in which we see affected beneficiaries receive uncooked food supplies that have been assessed and approved by nutrition experts as adequate for the benefiting children.
The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, in a release Tuesday morning, also disclosed that over 6,000 schools will serve as distribution centres for clusters of communities except in some states with unique security and safety issues where other structures will be used.
