Buhari begins payment of N5,000 to poor Nigerians with World Bank and Bill Gates Foundation funds (photos)



President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) Programme has kicked off with Biometric Capture and Account Opening in Borno camps for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP).

The programme is a part of the scheme under the ‘Social Investment Programmes’ of the government of Muhammadu Buhari. 


According to this initiative, one million extremely poor Nigerians would receive 5,000 naira monthly in 2016.

Laolu Akande, the special assistant to the vice president Yemi Osinbajo, clarified that for the
Conditional Cash Transfer, the money would be paid directly to the recipients through a payment system that was being worked out.

Osinbajo’s aide said World Bank and the Bill Gates Foundation were also cooperating with the federal government to develop an efficient payment system.

During the presidential campaign Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress, vowed to pay 5,000 naira a month to the unemployed and the poorest youths in the country.
