This payment is coming after days of protest staged to the national assembly by the state representative of scheme.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Hon Sadiya Farouq had announced early June that the Batch ‘A’and Batch’B’ beneficiaries will be exited from the scheme to give room for the batch ‘C’ beneficiaries the government is planning to bring onboard.
The commencement of payment is a relief for beneficiaries who stopped receiving stipend from federal government during the peak of economic lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Minister of Humanitarian Affairs Disaster Management and Social Development Hon Sadiya Farouq, more than 5,000,000 Nigerians have applied for the 400,000 job slots in Batch ‘C’ of the scheme.
