President Tinubu Suspends National Social Investment Programme

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

This is further to the on-going investigation of alleged malfeasance in the management of the agency and its programmes.

All four (4) Programmes administered by NSIPA – N-Power, Conditional Cash Transfer, Government Enterprise and Empowerment and Home Grown School Feeding programmes have been suspended for a period of six weeks in the first instance.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has also raised significant concern over operational lapses and improprieties surrounding payment 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 recommending necessary reforms of the NSIPA.

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

“The President wishes to assure the stakeholders and all Nigerians that his administration remains committed to a swift and unbiased process that will ensure that, going forward, social intervention programmes will work exactly as intended, to the benefit of the most vulnerable Nigerians”, Segun Imohiosen,
director of Information, Office of Secretary to the Government of the Federation said in a statement.
