National DevelopmentNewsNigeriaInsecurity: Federal Government Commences Data Collection Of People In Katsina State

The Federal Government has commenced collection of data of people affected by the prevailing insecurity in some Local Government Areas of Katsina State.

The team leader, Nadia Muhammed-Soso, who heads the ministry’s Special Duties Department in the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development said on Thursday in Katsina that the aim was to mainstream the victims into all National Social Investment Programmes.

Represented by Funke Olatunji, Muhammed-Soso said during a sensitisation on the survey, that the victims had suffered enough and required life changing support.

“It is a fact that insecurity in Nigeria has continued to restrict access to basic services and both affected people and host communities require emergency support and other necessary humanitarian assistance.

“To this end, the ministry whose mandate is to provide assistance for vulnerable groups in Nigeria has realized the enormous challenges faced by the victims of terrorism across Nigeria and has commenced a pilot phase of sensitization and survey of the victims.

“The programmes run by the ministry include Conditional Cash Transfer, Government Enterprise Empowerment Programme, N-Power, National Home Grown School Feeding Programme, and Grant for Vulnerable Groups.

“The ministry intends to mainstream the victims into all National Social Investment Programmes with a view to strengthening their resilience through social inclusion and provision of durable solutions,” she added.

She expressed hope that the beneficiaries of the exercise would make good use of the opportunity and provide concrete information that would guide the ministry in achieving its set goals.
