Just In: Tinubu Suspends National Social Investment Programme

By Miriam Humbe

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Friday, suspended all administered programmes by the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA).

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, said this in a statement signed by the Director Information, OSGF,
Segun Imohiosen.

The statement said that the suspension was further to the ongoing investigation of alleged official misconduct in the management of the agency and its programmes.

All four Programmes administered by NSIPA, viz; N-Power Programme, Conditional Cash Transfer Programme, Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme and Home Grown School Feeding Programme have been suspended for a period of six weeks in the first instance.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu also raised significant concerns regarding operational lapses and improprieties surrounding payments to the Programmes’ beneficiaries.

He has therefore constituted a ministerial panel to conduct a thorough review of the Agency’s operations with a view to recommend necessary reforms of the NSIPA.

During the period of this suspension, all NSIPA-related activities, including but not limited to distributions, events, payments, collaborations and registrations are now frozen.

The President assured the stakeholders and all Nigerians that his administration remained committed to a swift and unbiased process that would ensure that, going forward, social intervention programmes would work exactly as intended, to the benefit of the most vulnerable Nigerians.
