Lafia – Alhaji Katcha Kudu, North Central President of All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS), has written off the Federal Government’s School Feeding Programme, describing it as a conduit pipe to siphon public funds.
Alhaji Kudu said this while fielding questions from journalists at the venue of the zonal annual workshop of ANCOPSS at the Ta’al Conference Centre in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital.
Kudu argued that the school feeding programme was a failure and noted that the amount of money spent was not justifiable given the quality of meals given to students.
According to him, “The school feeding programme is a total failure and a means to enrich some few friends of this administration.
“Principals are not even involved in the implementation and therefore we don’t even have a say.
“The government should have a rethink and take serious inventory of the exercise and stop wasting national resources.
“There are better programmes that will improve the life of the poor.”
