A viral photo that has caused social media users to react captures moment students of Senior High School (SHS) were served with gari mixed with oil.
Students who used to be fed nutritious meals are now being made to settle for whatever is available due to the shortage of foods in various SHS.
In the photo that popped online, students of an unknown senior high school were being fed ‘gari jollof.
This is a meal where the gari is partially soaked in water and mixed with red oil. Ordinarily, gari jollof must be spiced up with nutrients like meat, fish, or eggs, including vegetables.
None of these were added to the meal. Many have been reacting to the situation and calling on the government to review the free SHS policy in order to adequately feed their students.
Cue commented: this is called Gari Ngo.. this one dey save life pass Gob3 .. jux add hot water den everything makes set plus soup or stew ..your future go be bright
