More Vulnerable Households from Osun Register to benefit from expanded Social Investment Programmes

With the recent pronouncement by the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, on immediate expansion of Social Investment Programmes, SIPs of the federal government to accommodate more Nigerians, it is certain that the State of Osun would not be left out.
Apart from the National Home-grown School Feeding Programme; Government Enterprises Entrepreneurship Programme (GEEP), N-Power Job Scheme that Osun indigenes are currently benefitting from the most sought after scheme (Conditional Cash Transfer) would also now cater for more targeted vulnerable households in the State
Focusing on the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT), many more households are now to receive a monthly stipend of N5000, which is expected to be channeled toward increasing nutrition and meeting other obligations that can assist in human capital development.
When the State Operation Coordinating unit (SOCU) of Youth Employment & Social Support Operation (YESSO), under the auspices of Bureau of Social Services, Office of the Governor was going round some pilot LGAs, compiling the single register, first beneficiaries know that this is not just another pro-poor initiative, which will not see the light of the day.
The (SOCU) had already engaged the partnership of 18 LGAs and we are currently working with additional 6 LGAs (including LCDAs and Administrative offices) to ensure that more than 7,000 households from its register, are selected by the State Cash Transfer office, to be empowered to move out of poverty this year.
