LASG feeds 11,000 students from 33 schools on Lagos island

Lagos State government has fed more than eleven thousand pupils from thirty-three schools in Lagos Island in its free feeding initiative for schools called ‘Snacks for Thought’.

The week-long pilot scheme floated by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and implemented through the office of Civic Engagement, was aimed at energising pupils for concentration during classes, improve their academic performance and an incentive for higher enrolment in schools.

Speaking on the programme, Special Adviser to the Governor on Civic Engagement, Princess Aderemi Adebowale, said this move would provide motivation for pupils to stay in class, and stay away from crime.

Aderemi explained that the programme would have a multiplier effect on the THEME agenda of the state government as well as promote access to quality education, sustain the growth of Lagos State and Nigeria at large.
