People Will Start Getting The N500bn Social Intervention From June 11

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, says Federal Government (FG) will start the first roll out of its N500 billion Intervention Scheme on June 11.

The minister made the disclosure at the inaugural “Buharimeter Town Hall Meeting’’, organised by the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), in Abuja on Thursday.

The town hall meeting was organised to evaluate the 1st year of Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

According to NAN, the event was supported by Open Society for West Africa (OSIWA), and Department for International Development (DFID),

Mohammed said the government would on Saturday open an internet portal named “npower.gov.ng’’ and start taking applications for the 500,000 direct teacher job scheme.

He said that other schemes in the Social investment Programme would be rolled out in the coming weeks.

The schemes, according to the minister, included the conditional cash transfer that pays N5,000 monthly to one million Nigerians and the micro-credit scheme for more than 1.5 million people.

He said the others were the home grown school feeding programme that will serve 5.5 million pupils and the education support grant programme for 100,000 tertiary students in Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), and education.

“The Change we promised is real, and with the takeoff of our massive Social Intervention programmes in a few days, Nigerians will begin to feel the impact of the new order.’’
