O-Meal: FG hails Osun's relaunch of school feeding programme

The Federal Government has commended Osun for being the only state with an ongoing school feeding programme out of the 36 of the Federation.

This was made known in a statement by Olawale Rasheed, Adeleke's spokesperson on Wednesday in Osogbo.

The statement disclosed that President Bola Tinubu's Senior Special Assistant, Dr Yetunde Adeniji told Governor Adeleke that the commitment of Osun State to the school feeding programme elated all stakeholders.

According to her, it is a rare show of love for the growth and development of the young ones.

The SSA was speaking at the commencement of a pilot study ‘value for money’ of which Osun was selected for its passion and high standard in the running of the school feeding programme.

The statement also revealed that Governor Adeleke has meanwhile re-launched the programme on a new note.

Adeleke reaffirmed his belief that the young ones deserved all the support for an orderly transition to youth rank.

“The O-Meal programme is ongoing even with more features. I am proud my state stands out among the 36 states on the O-Meal programme. 

“I call on the opposition to at least see this new reality. We should put politics aside and commend this programme which benefits all pupils irrespective of political affiliations.

“Our administration equally reassures the Federal Government and the mandated ministry that Osun will continue to implement the programme under very high standard," Adeleke noted.
