Committee reveals 349 fake schools used in Nasarawa for domestic education


The delegation from the Federal Government’s enumeration committee discovered 349 phantom schools that had been signed up for the homegrown feeding program in Nasarawa State.

When he led the team to Government House, Lafia, to pay a courtesy call to the Nasarawa Governor, Abdullahi Sule, Mallam Abdullahi Usman, the team head of the Committee and the adviser to the Humanitarian Minister, revealed this.

Usman claimed that some state officials were misusing funds for the State’s school food program, but he also pointed out that 1,203 public primary schools had been identified as beneficiaries when the program first started.

The committee “found 349 ghost schools with some officials pocketing the money meant for feeding these students,” he claimed after the screening process.

Top ministry officials in Abuja suggested that Nasarawa State be withdrawn from the program after the revelation, but the committee reversed its recommendation to spare the underprivileged kids an unfair penalty, Usman said.

Usman, however, revealed that the consultant and program officer for Nasarawa State had been fired and replaced.

He congratulated the program’s pertinent stakeholders for guaranteeing the program’s success in the State.

They include, among others, the State Ministry of Education, the National Orientation Agency, the National Youth Service Corps, and the National Bureau for Statistics.
