Dr. Zakari Adam of the United Nations Children Funds (UNICEF) has called on State Governments to increase funding for nutritional programmes.
The Chief of Kaduna Field Office made the appeal on Thursday at the UNICEF-Nasarawa State 2018 end of year review and work planning.
He emphasized the need for state governments to own the programme as UNICEF was only supporting such projects for the well-being of children.
He said the essence of the review was to assess the results from implementation of UNICEF programmes in the state for 2018 and develop a work plan for 2019/2020.
“This review meeting would help us to assess results achieved, lapses identified and how to improve on the achievements and address the lapses going forward,” Adam said.
