Senator Shehu Sani has charged the Federal Government to publish the names and other details of beneficiaries of the N20,000 Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT).
Shehu Sani stated this in a Saturday tweet.
Recall that the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq, said on Wednesday that the ministry had commenced payment of N20, 000 each to 5,000 beneficiaries on its CCT programme in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
She said the N20,000 was in line with presidential directive.
She said, “As we know, the CCT is for poor and vulnerable households in the country.
“Beneficiaries are entitled to N5, 000 every month; however, the payment of N20, 000 now to each beneficiary is for four mouths.
“It is going to happen all over the country, but we are starting with FCT, Lagos and Ogun. These are the frontline states. Other states will follow.
“With the current pandemic and circumstances on ground, this amount will go a long way to support the families in their daily lives.
“Today, we are giving out N20, 000 each to about 190 beneficiaries in Kwali Area Councils. The total beneficiaries in FCT are 5, 000.’’
In an apparent response to the news, Shehu Sani, who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, stated, “Publish the names and details of all the beneficiaries of the 20k.”
