The Federal government says the challenge of out-of-school children is not only a northern problem.

The coordinator of the National Social Investment Program, Dr. Umar Bindir, said this at a briefing of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management.

According to him, there are several out-of-school children all over Nigeria.

Also speaking, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, said there are over 10 million out-of-school children in the country.

She, however, said that there are now 46 million Nigerians on the National Social Register.
