Chief Olabode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has argued that pumping money into the school feeding programme is absurd, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement issued on Sunday, George said it was laughable that the government sought to distribute palliative in a country with no standard housing coordination.

George said; “Pumping money into school feeding programme while the schools are not open is a little absurd.

“It is a redundant, unworkable palliative. In a nation where there is no standard numbering of houses, how do you get the food to the beneficiaries? This is more than laughable. It is tragic”, he added.

According to him, the pandemic had thrown up serious issues in the economy, leading to hunger in the land with its attending problems.

He, therefore, called for a “serious”, coherent, deliberate, aggregated and aggressive management of the pandemic.

The PDP chieftain urged the country to develop a homegrown solution to the pandemic while embracing proven and attested global examples.
