Fed Govt begins 3rd bi-monthly CCT payment

Our Reporter

Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, through the best household uplifting programme – Conditional Cash Transfer – has begun the payment of the third bi-monthly Conditional Cash Transfer in Epe, Lagos State and its environs.

The Federal Government, through the ministry, has continued the payment for eligible residents.

The payment began at the weekend through the Lagos State Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs Yetunde Arobieke.

Each beneficiary received N10,000 for September and October 2020.

The commissioner said the initiative would be administered through the designated household caregiver, who would utilise the money for the better living of the household.

She urged mothers to take the opportunity and inform others yet to hear, to team up because the money, according to her, is from the Federal Government and will be paid six times every year.

The commissioner lauded the Federal Government, through the National Social Safety Nets Coordinating Office, under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, for its support in the establishment of the cash transfer unit in Lagos State.

She thanked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his commitment and support in making the implementation a success.

Arobieke said the process of enrolment of beneficiary households began last April with the most vulnerable, aged and indigent citizens identified.

The Alara of Ilara, Oba Olufolarin Olukayode Ogunsanwo Telade VI, praised the state and federal governments for the initiative.

He also lauded the Ministry of Wealth Creation.

The Executive Chairman of Eredo Local Council Development Area, Adeniyi Saliu Razaq, expressed gratitude to the state government for choosing the local government as a beneficiary of the initiative.
