FG Disburses Cash To 15,768 Vulnerable Households In Anambra

The Federal Government has commenced the disbursement of cash to 15,768 vulnerable households in Anambra State.

The Head of Unit, Anambra State Cash Office, Mr. Ralph Enukorah, said the beneficiaries cut across 11 of the 21 local government areas of the state.

Enukorah said the payments started with six pilot local government areas considered poorest in the state including Awka North, Anambra West, Dunukofia, Ihiala, Anyamelum and Orumba South.

According to him, the programme had been extended to five more local government areas which included Awka South, Onitsha North, Ogbaru, Nnewi North and Anambra East to accommodate more beneficiaries.

Enukorah assured all beneficiaries of the payment and commended the federal government for providing the framework for effective implementation of the programme.

He said;

“The federal government is paying the beneficiaries of the Conditional Cash Transfer, as a social intervention programme of the Buhari administration.

“Every month, the poor and vulnerable households are paid N5,000 and in Anambra, we have a total of 15,768 beneficiaries spread across 11 local government areas,”

Beneficiaries from this development were not left behind as some of them expressed their gratitude. Mrs Regina Obikie expressed joy for receiving the money as it would help her increase her small business.
