Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara, has directed public boarding schools’ management and feeding officers in the state to eat the same food they feed their students.
Matawalle gave the directive shortly after paying unscheduled visits to two boarding schools; Government Science Secondary School and Government Girls Secondary School, all in Gusau the state capital.
Nigeria News Agency recalls that a Projects Verification Committee set up by the governor last December, had reported that those in charge of food supplies at public schools “were only collecting large sums of money from the State government coffers and feeding the students what dogs will not eat.’’
Gov. Matawalle during the surprised visit to the schools, went straight to dining halls and confirmed the committee’s report.
The governor who expressed anger over the situation compelled all those in charge to collect and eat the food in his presence.
He further extended the directive to all the government-owned boarding schools ordering that all those charged with the responsibility of providing food should henceforth eat along with the students from the same source.
“I will put a monitoring machinery in place that will be reporting compliance of this order directly to me, and anyone caught violating the directive will face outright dismissal from the service of the state,” Matawalle warned.
NAN further reports that the governor had been receiving reports from various committees instituted at the beginning of his administration with the promise to implement the committees’ recommendations after careful study.

Security: Gov. Oyetola inaugurates community policing advisory committee in Osun
Gov. Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun, on Tuesday, inaugurated the state Community Policing Advisory Committee to strengthen security in the state.
Oyetola, during the inauguration in Osogbo, said that the initiative by the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, on community policing was “a creative and proactive solution to the pervasive security challenges in the nation.”
He said that the initiative was to ensure people’s participation in security matters at the community level, in order to achieve effective and efficient security and safety architecture.
“The committee has different structures, including state Community Policing Committee, Area Command Policing Advisory Committee, Local Government Advisory Committee and Divisional Community Policing Committee.
“All these are to ensure that effective policing is achieved at every stratum of the community.
“I, therefore, appeal to the leaderships of the various outfits not only to carry out their duties with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity but to also, continue to show leadership and engage in dialogue where there are grey areas, in the public interest,” he said.
Earlier in his remarks, Mr David Folawiyo, the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 11, Osogbo, applauded the governor for taking security matter to the front burner since the inception of his administration.
While describing the launch of community policing in the state as a welcome development, Folawiyo said that the initiative had become necessary, particularly at a time the nation was battling with pocket of security challenges.
Also speaking, Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr Timothy Owoeye, said that the establishment of community policing would go a long way to bridge the gap and fill the vacuum in the security sector of the state.
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, who was also present at the inauguration, extolled the state government for being alive to its constitutional responsibility of guaranteeing the security of lives and property of the citizenry.

COVID-19: WHO advises govts to ease lockdowns in systematic step-by-step approach
The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 114 events in the region.
The edition covers COVID-19 in the WHO African Region, Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Cholera in Ethiopia.
According to the bulletin, COVID-19 outbreak continues in Africa, with the total number of confirmed cases surpassing 100, 000.
“The overall trends continue to rise although with variation among countries.
“Many countries have started easing confinement measures imposed earlier but they are advised to follow the guidelines issued on that,” it said.
The agency also advised countries to continue with containment and mitigation measures.
“Active case finding, population screening, testing and contact follow-up are particularly important.
“Governments need to commit local resources, supplemented by the donor communities to this response.
“In addition, humanitarian corridors need to be opened up for the movement of essential supplies and personnel in the many countries whose borders have closed as part of their COVID-19 response,” WHO said.
In addition, the agency said the resurgence of Ebola in Beni, DRC, since the April 10, 2020 highlighted the importance of constant and heightened vigilance.
“Although, the 42-day countdown to end of outbreak declaration has re-started,” the agency stated.
The agency, however, said local and national authorities in DRC needed to continue to reinforce surveillance and response measures in the areas affected by the EVD outbreak in order to prevent a major resurgence of cases.
“Increased community engagement is necessary at this point, as survivors experience increasing stigmatisation and rumours abound,” it said.
Meanwhile, WHO said the ongoing cholera outbreak in three regions of Ethiopia had continued poised many challenges, in spite of the declining trend.
“There is poor sanitation, hygiene and housing in at least one of the affected areas, along with lack of oral cholera vaccine and water treatment chemicals, as well as a recurrence in a previously controlled area.
“The ongoing cholera outbreak in three regions of Ethiopia needs urgent attention from local and national authorities and partners, to capitalise on the declining trend and prevent any recurrence or geographical spread,’’ it stated.

Kwara Govt tasks officials on appropriate use of immunisation equipment
Dr Raji Abdulrazaq, the state Commissioner for Health, gave the task while inaugurating the State Emergency Routine Immunisation Centre (SERIC) on Tuesday in Ilorin.
Abdulrazaq said the donated vehicles and equipment would strengthen the PHCs in the state.
Abdulrazaq noted that the equipment and vehicles would facilitate wide coverage of immunisation of children throughout the state.
Dr Michael Oguntoye, Director, State Primary Health Care Development Agency, said the state government and development partners were worried because of the problems in spite of the national routine immunisation.
Oguntoye spoke on the sidelines of the inauguration of the equipment.
According to him, the last multiple indicator cluster sampling in 2016 and 2017, shows that there is very poor performance in routine immunisation in the country.
He said the Federal Government, for the first time, accepted the report of the Multiple Indicator Sampling and declared a state of emergency on public health immunisation to protect the population of immunised children.
“The objectives of establishing them is to ensure the responsiveness in the resolution of routine immunisation gaps in the country and to strengthen coordination for routine immunisation,” he said.
Oguntoye noted that the SERIC in Kwara, would among other objectives, identify bottlenecks and barriers to routine immunisation design and implement strategies to address the barriers, to increase coverage.
According to him, all eligible unimmunised children will be identified through tailored specific approach, while ensuring the availability of vaccines to local government health facilities.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some of the donated items included two Hilux vehicles, laptops, computers, projectors, public address systems and photocopiers.
