In a notable initiative by the President Tinubu’s administration, the Federal Government’s Conditional Cash Transfer program aims to provide relief to 25 million Nigerians following the subsidy removal. Under this program, beneficiaries receive N25,000 monthly for three consecutive months, totaling N75,000.
Despite the anticipation surrounding the distribution, the application process has left many Nigerians seeking clarity. One beneficiary, who attested to receiving the unexpected credit alert, shared insights into his experience without the need for a specific code.
Reflecting on the program, he drew parallels with the 2021 RRRs program, emphasizing that he, like many others, lacks knowledge of any intricate code but still received the financial support unexpectedly.
Addressing concerns about data collection, it remains unclear how individual states plan to inform citizens about the application process. Meanwhile, the Federal Government maintains that it possesses comprehensive data on Nigerians through the National Identification Number (NIN) and Bank Verification Number (BVN) for validation purposes.
As the conditional cash transfer program unfolds, beneficiaries are left wondering about the transparency of the data compilation process and the role of NIN and BVN in facilitating these relief efforts.
