Abia Social Investment Prog to pay N93m to 10,000 beneficiaries



The Abia State Social Investment Programme has disclosed that the Federal Government released 93.47 million Naira through the Abia State Cash Transfer Unit for payment to about 10,000 benefitting Households in the state.

This is coming after the initial payment of 540 million Naira paid out last year to the same benefiting households.

However, in a press release signed by Godwin Okeagu from Abia SIP Office and made available to DAILY POST on Tuesday, in Umuahia, said the payment will be flagged off on Monday, January 25th, 2021 in one of the benefiting Local Government Areas.

According to Abia State SIP, “We thank the President for sustaining this programme that has improved the livelihood of the poor and vulnerable members of the society, we sincerely commend Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for putting up strong structures to implement the initiatives seamlessly in the State. Abia State Cash Transfer Unit, a component of the Abia State Social Investment Programme, is one of the most efficiently run Cash Transfer Units in the country.
