The Federal Government has responded to the dispute concerning the Conditional Cash Transfer scheme.
The cash transfer is currently ongoing in some states in Nigeria.
Sadiya Farouq, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management has made clarifications on the claims that two members of a family are being paid N20,000 each.
She said it is highly impossible for such to happen.
Sadiya said the same family cannot receive money more than once.
The Minister said;
“This is near impossible because the process involved is a very tedious process, where all critical stakeholders in the community are involved.
“The community leaders and the faith-based organizations, the youths and women leaders in that particular community are the ones that come up with the list of poor and vulnerable ones in that community.”
