The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari claims that since the Social Investment Programme (NSIP)’s in Adamawa, 122,563 people have been registered under the program.

This information was provided by Sadiya Umar-Farouk, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, on Tuesday in Yola during the distribution of grants to needy populations.

She stated that 8,697 additional people engaged in the N-power scheme received a N30,000 monthly allowance while 64,607 were enrolled in the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT), which covered 64,205 households.

The minister went on to say that 27,000 youngsters had been recruited for the Government Enterprise Empowerment Programme (GEEP), and that the government had given them soft loans of N50,000 and N300,000 to help them start up profitable businesses.

According to Ms. Umar-Farouk, the regime employed 2,259 food vendors through the Home Grown School Feeding program to help 162,782 students in Adamawa get fed.

In order to assure the successful operation of the feeding program, the government hired more impartial monitors and provided them with tablets, she said.

The minister asked the government of Adamawa to emulate the deed and implement such programs to end poverty and promote wealth creation.

Bashir Ahmed, the Secretary to the State Government, speaking on behalf of Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, praised the action.

He promised that the government would help hasten the successful implementation of the program to increase the population’s level of independence and productivity.
