    NAPTAN seeks participation in FG’s modified school feeding programm

    The National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN) has called on the Federal Government to involve it in planning and implementation of the modified National Home-Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP).

    The National President, Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Kaduna.

    NAN reports that the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development had modified the NHGSF to provide food items to pupils at home, since schools were closed.

    This followed the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari, to mitigate the effect of the Coronavirus lockdown on pupils, particularly those that depend on the school feeding programme for their daily meals.

    Based on the modified programme, which implementation had commenced, households with children in primary one to three are entitled to a voucher for a five kilogramme each of rice and beans.

    Other food items are vegetable and palm oil, salt, half crates of eggs, and 40 gramme of tomato paste.

    Danjuma however, said that NAPTAN, as the number one stakeholder in education and mouthpiece of all parents in the country, should be involved in the process.

    He also said that the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) was also not consulted.

    “We are very concerned, because we have no clue on how the ministry intends to implement the programme.

    “For example, how will the ministry locate our children while they are with us at home? How often are they going to be fed? These and so many other questions are bothering us as parents.

    PTA and NUT played a significant role in curbing the spread of Ebola in schools, indicating that consulting parents on matters that affect their children is the best way to go.

    “We are surprised that issues affecting our children are being discussed and implemented without our voice as parents. We find this very disturbing,” Danjuma said.

    He urged the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, to consult the federal and state ministries of education, PTA, NUT, and other relevant stakeholders in handling issues concerning children.

    N-Power: Plateau Govt. cautions citizens against fraudsters, fake portals

    The Plateau Government on Friday cautioned people of the state against fraudsters and fake N-Power portals as the government had yet to open its portal to the Nigerian public.

    Dr Sumaye Hamza, the Executive Assistant to Gov. Simon Lalong and Focal Person, National Social Investment Programme (NSIP), gave the advice at a one-day capacity  building workshop organised for staff of NSIP in the state.

    “Citizens should note that the NPower portal is yet to be opened and that the engagement is online and very transparent; it is not through completion of forms as being peddled by fraudsters.

    “SIP is technology-driven to enable a balanced selection where those who don’t know anybody can have equal opportunity to participate.

    “Most importantly, our youths should be careful disclosing their personal information indiscriminately.

    “Once the portal is opened, we have an obligation to appropriately inform the good people of Plateau about the procedures of enrolment,” Hamza said.

    Nigerian News Agency reports that the focal person used the workshop with Theme: ‘Enhancing Productivity Through Capacity Development’ to showcase the achievements the NSIP has so far recorded in the state.

    She said that the journey of the Social Investment Programme initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari, in Nigeria and the state had been very rewarding and impactful.

    She said the four components of the programme include : Job Creation tagged NPower; Conditional Cash Transfer {CCT}; National Home Grown School Feeding {NHGSF} and the Government Enterprise Empowerment Programme {GEEP}, were now household names.

    “There is no doubt that a good percentage of residents of Plateau are either direct or indirect beneficiaries because their family members are benefiting from the intervention or they are transacting business with those benefiting.

    “The fact that an encouraging number of people are directly benefiting from the intervention has greatly helped to maintain peace and stability through useful engagement and improved economic wellbeing of people, increased enrolment and enhanced livelihood among others.

    “Over 11,000 youths are benefiting from the N-Power intervention;there are 61,565 Poorest of the poor Househods, within which we have 291,249 individuals benefiting from the CCT intervention.

    “A total of 3,285 cooks are feeding 220,000 pupils in 1970 public primary schools in the state and thousands of small scale traders have benefited from the TraderMoni and Marketmoni.

    “All these became possible because of the passion of our Gov. Simon Lalong who provided the enabling environment for effective implementation of the programmes under SIP,” Hamza disclosed.
