The Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, has commended the Federal Government for the commencement of payment to the first batch of awardees for the five thousand naira Conditional Cash Transfer programme.

The pilot stage of the Social Investment Programme kicked off last week in some select states, including Kogi State, in fulfillment of this administration’s campaign promise. 

In a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Petra Onyegbule, Mr. Bello lauded the social welfare programme, saying it was aimed at ameliorating the plight of millions of vulnerable Nigerians around the country.
The governor said some beneficiaries in the state had acknowledged receipt of the stipend.

“The delivery of this promise by the Federal Government at a time many have dismissed it as the usual campaign rhetoric is heartwarming, and a sign that the harsh economic climate and general downturn is not getting the better of us.

“Also coming on the heels of the administration’s Homegrown School Feeding programme for primary school kids, as well as the N-Power programme for unemployed graduates around the country, it underlines the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari to meeting the needs of Nigerians of all social strata,” the governor said.

Appealing to beneficiaries to make do with the token sum, the governor assured that government at both state and federal level would continue to act in the best interest of the people.
