Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has introduced a school-to-farm Programme into the curricula of the country’s primary and junior secondary schools.
The programme aims at exposing students in basic schools to the cultivation of farm produce such as maize, cassava, yam, guinea corn, vegetables and livestocks.
Executive Secretary of Ubec, Doctor Hamid Boboye, made this known at a workshop on the implementation of the framework of the programme in Kaduna.
Boboye says that the commission has approved two per cent of its grants for the implementation of the programme and end teaching of agriculture in the schools without practical to back it up.
