Nigerians Who Top Up N100 Airtime, Have N5,000 Balance Will Get Cash – FG by Addme: 9:52am On Apr 15, 2020
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs,
Sadiya Umar Farouq, says the
federal government considers
Nigerians who buy N100 call credit
as poor and will ensure they get
relief cash.
The minister, who earlier confirmed
that N-Power beneficiaries were
being paid their stipends, spoke in
an interview with State House
correspondents on Tuesday.
NAN quoted her as disclosing that
urban poor dwellers with an account
balance of N5,000 or less will be
among the beneficiaries of the
Conditional Cash Transfer scheme.
Farouq said the prospective
beneficiaries would be part of the
additional one million households
approved by President Muhammadu
Buhari in his national broadcast
Monday night.
“You are also aware that Mr
President in his broadcast directed
that we expand the beneficiaries of
the Conditional Cash Transfer by
one million. In this regard, we are
going to focus more on the urban
poor.
“These are people who depend on
the informal sector to earn their
livelihood. They are daily wage
earners and these are people we are
really going to focus more on as well
as people living with disabilities,’’ she
stated.
Farouq explained that aside the
National Social Register, Bank
Verification Numbers (BVN) and
previous record of purchase of
recharge cards by mobile phone
owners formed part of criteria to
identify Nigerians that will get the
cash transfer.
“We are also using the mobile
network, people that top up their
phones with maybe N100, N200.
These are the people we consider to
be poor and vulnerable,’’ the
minister added.
Nigerians have been condemning
the methods of the federal
government’s disbursement of cash
and food items.
Likewise, the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) criticized President
Muhammadu Buhari for “failure to
provide palliatives” to cushion the
effect of the COVID-19 pandemic in
Nigeria.
