The group said they do not believe that the Federal Government excluded Ekiti state for political reasons.

The group also said “Over time, the present administration in Ekiti has proved to have a way of sniffing out information from the federal authority, why was this particular one missed? The Ekiti government owe her citizens some explanations on why the State refused participating in a national programme that was alleged by Senator Babafemi Ojudu to have been in its planning stage since last year September.

“We can’t but wonder why the state government only concerned itself with clarifying why the state wasn’t represented at the flag-off ceremony but tactically ignored the exclusion of the state in the school feeding program.”

Adding that “We are aware that a process must have led to the eventual flag off of the programme, the big question is, was Ekiti State represented in this build up towards the Launching of the School feeding program in Abuja? If not, why?”

Governor Ayo Fayose said he would not contribute to the Federal Government’s School Feeding Programme.
