In a bid to enhancing the about 1.14 million jobs and boost food production in the country, the Vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has said the present administration of government would soon commence giving primary school children free meal as a core project of the federal government.

He noted that the government would be investing more in the people, education and job creation.
While speaking on the topic “Repositioning Nigeria for Sustainable Development: From Rhetoric to Performance,” at the 45th Annual Accountants Conference in Abuja, Osinbajo said that the multiplier effects of the introduction of the school feeding scheme would help to create 1.14 million new jobs; increase food production by up to 530,000 metric tonnes per annum.

“The All Progressives Congress has made a commitment to provide one-meal-a-day for all primary school students; that would create jobs in agriculture, including poultry, catering and delivery services,” Osinbajo said.
