FG Approves Cash Transfers and Social Programs to Aid Vulnerable Citizens

Tinubu administration aims to tackle economic challenges through targeted financial support and youth initiatives.

In a bid to address economic hardship faced by many Nigerians, President Bola Tinubu has announced the reinstatement of a cash transfer program alongside plans for further social support initiatives.

Following a Federal Executive Council meeting on Monday, Finance Minister, Wale Edun, revealed the President’s approval to resume direct cash transfers of N25,000 to 12 million vulnerable households, encompassing approximately 60 million Nigerians.

Emphasis on Transparency and Addressing Fraud:

To ensure program integrity and prevent past issues with fraud, the reinstated cash transfers will require beneficiaries to be identified through their National Identification Numbers (NINs) and Bank Verification Numbers (BVNs). This measure aims to guarantee payments reach their intended recipients.

Addressing Youth Challenges:

Recognizing the unique challenges faced by young Nigerians, particularly in the current economic climate, President Tinubu has directed the development of a Social Security unemployment program. This initiative aims to provide financial assistance to unemployed graduates and young people seeking work.

Additional Support Measures:

Furthermore, the government is exploring the establishment of a “social consumer credit program” to make consumer goods more accessible for citizens. This initiative aims to stimulate the economy by increasing purchasing power and enabling individuals to acquire necessary goods.

Overall, these announcements signal the Tinubu administration’s commitment to providing targeted financial support to vulnerable Nigerians and fostering economic recovery through youth-oriented programs.

It is important to note that details regarding the exact implementation and eligibility criteria for these programs are still emerging. Further information and clarifications are expected in the coming days
