The Federal Government has said that it pays the sum of N10 billion to one million beneficiaries every two months from the National Cash Transfer under its National Social Safety Nets Programme (NASSP), the News Agency of Nigeria is reporting.

The programme was introduced to help address unemployment, improve the living conditions of extremely poor and vulnerable Nigerians, empower the people economically, encourage school enrolment, equip less educated people to be self-employed, build capacity and so on.

Mr Apera Iorwa, the National Coordinator, National Social Safety Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO) disclosed this at the NASSP Third-Party Project scorecard dissemination meeting on Monday, in Abuja.

“From the Federal Government cash transfer programme, each beneficiary got N5,000 monthly but because of logistics, we pay N10,000 every two months and we have paid about one million beneficiaries across the country,” he said.
