Couple of days ago, when the Federal Government of Nigeria announced that they have an immediate disbursement of 20k conditional cash transfer to poor Nigerians to enable them cope with the lockdown, controversies have continued to trail the exercise, many Nigerians have been complaining that they have not received any alert from the Federal Government.
The complain took another direction when Area Fada, Charly Boy trolled federal government on twitter.
In his words;
“Sometimes person dey imagine if dis govment dey reason things inside-inside at all.
Dis money wey @FMHDSD dey claim to dey share to people wey poor die, how dem wan sabi dem for d 36states, which criteria dem dey use to know who poor well? As e be say we no get better database”
That has been the question everyone is asking, what database is federal government using to share the money to Nigerians.
But Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Sadiya Umar Farouq, who replied Charly Boy, in her reply she made it crystal clear to everyone to understand….
In her words;
“Area Fada, we salute. E get wetin dem dey call National Social Registry, na dem dey waka enter area wey poor Nigerians boku make dem for yarn to know who be who. Na that same registry we dey use do Conditional Cash Transfer.
Na so World Bank sef dey do am”.
So the truth now is that if you have not received any cash transfer from the federal government, then it means your name is not on the National Social Registry.
The names of Nigerians in this Registry are those living in a very poor area, people who are finding very difficult to survive. So if you have not received any money, then it maybe due to the area you are living, as emphasis is laid on where poor Nigerians are likely to be found.
