The Federal Government is set to introduce a Beneficiary Management System (BMS) to manage payments, address grievances and improve the dissemination of information of the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIPs).
Naija News reports that the BMS would be established by the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
This was disclosed by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Sadiya Farouq disclosed at the 4th Review of the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSF) held on Monday at NAF Centre, Abuja.
According to the minister, the Beneficiary Management System will enhance a unified database of all NSIP beneficiaries and a consolidated register for beneficiary payments.
Speaking further, Farouq said plans have been concluded for the exit and transition of the NPower batches A and B through the creation of the NEXIT portal, which will allow interested beneficiaries to sign up and access other Government empowerment opportunities.
She said: “We’ve restructured GEEP programs and other NSIP programs to align them with our mandate of providing fair focused social inclusion programmes to the vulnerable in Nigeria.
“FCT has also been added to the NHGSFP while Kwara State is rounding off its vendor selection process.
“The NHGSFP is to reach an additional 5 million pupils, including children in non-conventional educational settings after President Muhammadu Buhari directed more kids to be fed.”
This newspaper reports that the NSIP include the N-Power scheme, Conditional Cash Transfer, GEEP and the Home Grown School Feeding Programme.
