The payment is in line with the plans of the National Directorate of Employment(NDE) to assist businesses across the 36 States of the Federation.
In a release, by the Minister, there is an order to verify all accounts with the banks as well as BVN verification.
The Minister stated that false accounts will not be funded by the Ministry. Hence, the need to scrutinise all accounts with their respective banks.
Keyamo explained that his ministry has directed a "rigorous scrutiny of the accounts of the participants" before payment is made into their bank accounts.
He stated that there are accounts with no matching BVNs while some have multiple accounts which his ministry will not allow in order to prevent fraud.
In his words, Keyamo said that "only ACCESS Bank has responded with accounts verified for payments and the NDE has today commenced payments of those accounts" while he waits for other banks to respond.
He further said that the Federal Government will not condone any form of fraudulent act and not under his ministry.
