Zamfara State Governor, Bello Mohammed Matawalle has ordered all school principals and feeding officers in the state to henceforth eat the food they serve students or face dismissal.

Mawalle gave the order after after meeting secondary students eating substandard food contrary to the agreement with the principals and feeding officers in the state.

The governor, who was not happy with the quality of food he met in the two schools he visited, directed that “Henceforth, the principals and the feeding officers throughout the state must eat the same food they cook for their students or be dismissed”.

The visibly angry governor made it compulsory for the officials to eat together with the students amidst cheers from the visibly elated students.

“You must henceforth eat your food with your students and I will keep you on watch so that those who violate the order would be dismissed” Matawalle directed.

He personally supervised the compulsory eating of the sudstandard food by Principal and staff of Goverment Science Secondary School Gusau and Government Girls Secondary School Gusau.

The Governor expressed his dismay with the type of food provided to the students, in spite of huge amount of money being spent by the government on the program.

Matawalle warned that henceforth, his administration would deal decisively with such negative attitude by those entrusted with the responsibility.

He noted that the state government has been providing all necessary food items for the students and must therefore be delivered to them appropriately or face the wrath of his administration. This directive, Governor Matawalle said, applies across the state.
