The approval is part of preparations to reopen schools after the global coronavirus pandemic.
The Kano state Commissioner for Education, Malam Muhammad Sanusi Sa’ad Kiru disclosed this during the opening ceremony of a Computer Literate Workshop on preventive measures of COVID-19, for school principals held at the Ministry of Education.
He said all arrangements have been made to pay teachers allowances and other entitlements.
He said due to the hike in the prices of foodstuff, the Governor Ganduje graciously approved the upward review of allocation for school feeding up to the tune of N4.66 Billion.
He, however, urged the principals to ensure that students are being fed with quality meals, warning that diversion of the foodstuff or funds made for the school feeding programme will not be tolerated.
