“Our Grant for Vulnerable Groups target in Katsina State is to disburse grants to a total of 6,511 beneficiaries across the 34 Local Government Areas of the State, worth over N130 million. This is one of the highest slots in the country and is major because we took into account the impact of the insurgency, banditry and large volume of IDPs in the state.

“While the target of this Cash Grant project is to increase the income and productive assets of the target beneficiaries, it is highly expected that the beneficiaries will utilise the grant to improve their productivity, create wealth, generate employment and improve their standard of living”.

which will also include persons with disabilities and senior citizens.

Food and non-food items were also presented to flood victims in the affected thirteen (13) Local Government Area councils in the state.

All poverty alleviation programmes are targeted toward the social inclusion agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years.
