  1. According to the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, the delay is because the handing and taking over process is yet to be concluded.

    The minister also explained that the delay is not unconnected to lack of proper exit plan for beneficiaries that enrolled in 2016 despite expiration of their contract.

    Moving forward, the minister noted that the ministry was making efforts to develop exit plan which was not in existent.

    She however assured that the money owed would be paid to beneficiaries upon conclusion of the handing over and taking over process, adding that government will continue to fund its Social Investment Programmes and ensure that it touches lives positively.

    She disclosed this in her office in Abuja on Monday during a press briefing.

    Giving reasons for the delay, she said: “I have received initial briefings from heads of Agencies and Programmes reporting to the Ministry from October 2019, however on account of the technicalities involved, the handing over process is still on-going.
