Enugu Governor, Okezie-Ikpeazu

The governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has assured that the ongoing free school feeding programme for primary schools initiated by his administration in 2016, will be sustained and scaled up.

Speaking in Umuahia during a special reception organised in his honour by Abia Primary School Cooks Association (APSCA), Ikpeazu said that the social investment programme has directly touched over 5,300 women and 11,000 others indirectly in addition to 600,000 pupils that are benefitting from the programme.

He stressed that the essence of the programme is to ensure that pupils are healthy enough to develop their mental faculty and to reverse the drift from public to private school.

Governor Ikpeazu said he was happy that two years down the line, the programme he conceptualised was moving forward without any mishap or negative story.
