Lockdown Extension: N5000 to be sent to Account Holders by FG

The federal government has rolled out fresh guidelines on the distribution of palliatives to the poor and the vulnerable during the extended lockdown, which will focus on those living in the urban areas.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Ms. Sadiya Farouq, told State House reporters in Abuja that the beneficiaries would be those whose bank account balance is less than N5,000 and who recharge their phones with not more than N100.

She said in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to increase the number of beneficiaries of palliatives by one million, to cushion the effects of the restriction of movements in the fight against COVID-19, the second round of the distribution of the palliatives would focus largely on the poor and people living with disabilities in urban settings.

According to her, the modus operandi will involve the distribution of money under the conditional cash transfer scheme as well as food items.

When asked what would be the criteria for selection of the beneficiaries, Farouq said her ministry had adopted three options for the cash transfers.

She listed the options as the use of bank verification numbers (BVN) of account holders to select persons who have N5000 and below in their accounts and people who recharge their phones with not more than N100 as well as social registers.
