President Bola Tinubu has suspended the implementation of all initiatives overseen by the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA). This decision, outlined in a statement by Segun Imohiosen, the Director of Information at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, comes as part of the ongoing inquiry into purported misconduct in the agency’s operations and programs.
The statement reads, “All four (4) Programmes administered by NSIPA, viz; N- Power Programme, Conditional Cash Transfer Programme, Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme and Home Grown School Feeding Programme (the “Programs”) have been suspended for a period of six (6) weeks in the first instance.
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has also raised significant concerns regarding operational lapses and improprieties surrounding payments to the Programs’ beneficiaries.”
Consequently, he has established a ministerial panel to comprehensively assess the Agency’s functioning and propose essential reforms for the NSIPA.
“During the period of this suspension, all NSIPA-related activities, including but not limited to all distributions, events, payments, collaborations and registrations are now frozen.
“The President wishes to assure the stakeholders and all Nigerians that his administration remains committed to a swift and unbiased process that will ensure that, going forward, social intervention programmes will work exactly as intended, to the benefit of the most vulnerable Nigerians.”
