The initiative was launched in Lagos last week. Other states yet will receive theirs this week.

However, the Lagos state commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs. Yetunde Arobieke, thanked the Federal Government for its support in the cash transfer unit in Lagos.

Yetunde also hailed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his commitment and support in making the implementation a success. She recalled that enrollment began in April with the most vulnerable, and the poorest of the poor.

The commissioner added that over 8,000 households were registered by the Cash Transfer Office, as approved by the governor in April, 2020.

Meanwhile, the National Programme Coordinator of the scheme Dr. Temitope Shinkaye, represented by Mohammed Abdullah, said the programme focused on the poor and vulnerable as identified through geographic and community-based targeting.

He said the programme facilitated the transfer of N5,000 per month to the identified beneficiaries, noting that payment was made every two months to eligible households selected from the national social register.
