COVID-19: FG to start crediting Nigerians with less than N5000 in their bank accounts


The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar-Farouq has disclosed that the Federal Government conditional cash transfer cannot be benefitted by members from the same family.

She also stated that a total of 279 trucks of grains had been deployed to the frontline states that were put on lockdown by the President, The PUNCH reports.

She further said the government was focusing on digitalising the CCT scheme and was getting the Bank Verification Number of beneficiaries as well as their mobile phone contacts to improve on the transparency of the process.

On claims that two members of a family were paid N20,000 each recently, the minister said it was highly impossible for such to happen.

“The faith-based organisations, leaders of the community and other stakeholders are the ones who came up with the list of those to benefit from the intervention in that particular community.”

She added, “And if you go through the list, every particular household must be captured in all three or four of the lists being managed by that community.

“So it is almost impossible for the same members of a household to get this intervention.”
