The Department for International Development (DFID) does not currently plan to expand the geographical coverage of the Education Sector Support programme in Nigeria (ESSPIN). The programme is working at the Federal level and within six states. This is already a challenging level of operation and the approved coverage for this programme. DFID is currently assessing how best to ensure that more children, particularly girls, access improved education opportunities in Nigeria. We are considering through which mechanisms we can best achieve this, with the emphasis on best value for money.
