Cash Transfer: Don’t Collect Less Than N30,000 — FG Tells Nigerians

Nigerians benefitting from the federal government’s Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) have been told not to collect less than N30,000 as their grant.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development gave the charge on Saturday, July 18 in Gusau, the capital of Zamfara.

Sadiya Umar said at a press briefing the award was a piece of the organization of President Muhammadu Buhari to support poor people, jobless and defenseless Nigerians

Participants of the program would get at least N30,000 and a limit of N80,000, the pastor said. 

"Should any of our authorities associated with the program give you anything shy of the base measure of N30, 000, don't collect," she pushed.

She included: "Report legitimately to me or your state representative through our phone numbers which have been made accessible to you." 

The pastor said she would beg the media to give "genuine exposure" to this issue with the goal that the program was not "subverted, mishandled or vanquished". 

On why the program was at this point to completely take off in certain states, the clergyman stated: "State governments should be 30 percent prepared as far as their responsibility and personnel association before the government comes in with the remaining 70 percent. 

"In Zamfara where we are presently, the state government has indicated 70 percent responsibility and we have begun with communities in six out of the 14 local government zones of the state while the others will before long take off," she included.
