BREAKING: FG set to restart direct cash transfers to 15 million households

The Federal Government has concluded plans to restart the direct cash transfer to the poorest and most vulnerable Nigerians.


This is coming in the face of hardship faced by millions of Nigerians with escalating prices of goods and food items as well as the continuous fall of the naira.


With about 3 million Nigerians benefitting from these programmes, the federal government projects that an additional 12 million people, households can benefit from these direct payments, due to the sharp rise in the cost of living, bringing the total to about 15 million households.
