As the Nigerian government keeps on with the famed N-Power scheme, a Beneficiary Management System is to be introduced by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to manage payments, address grievances and improve dissemination of information of the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs).
Minister Sadiya Farouq said at the 4th Review of the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSF) held on Monday at NAF Centre, Abuja, that the Beneficiary Management System will enhance a unified database of all NSIP beneficiaries and a consolidated register for beneficiary payments.
Furthermore, Farouq disclosed that plans have been concluded for the exit and transition of the N-Power batches A and B through the creation of the NEXIT portal, which will allow interested beneficiaries to sign up and access other Government empowerment opportunities.
"We’ve restructured GEEP programs and other NSIP programs to align them with our mandate of providing fair focused social inclusion programmes to the vulnerable in Nigeria," Farouq said.
"FCT has also been added to the NHGSFP while Kwara State is rounding off its vendor selection process.
"The NHGSFP is to reach an additional 5 million pupils, including children in non-conventional educational settings, after President Muhammadu Buhari directed more kids to be fed," the Zamfara-born government official added.
Buhari government's NSIPs include the N-Power scheme, Conditional Cash Transfer, GEEP and the Home Grown School Feeding Programme.
