Published

on

President Bola Tinubu has announced the suspension of all administered Social Investment Programmes by the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA). The decision, disclosed in a statement by the Director of Information, Segun Imohiosen, is attributed to an ongoing investigation into alleged malfeasance in the management of the agency and its programmes.

The statement outlined the suspension of the N-Power Programme, Conditional Cash Transfer Programme, Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme, and Home Grown School Feeding Programme for an initial period of six weeks. President Tinubu expressed concerns about operational lapses and improprieties related to payments to the programmes’ beneficiaries.

To address the issues, President Tinubu has established a ministerial panel tasked with conducting a comprehensive review of the agency’s operations and recommending necessary reforms. Throughout the suspension period, all NSIPA-related activities, including distributions, events, payments, collaborations, and registrations, are on hold.

It’s noteworthy that the National Social Investment Programme Agency falls under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation. The ministry’s suspended minister, Dr Betta Edu, also faces allegations of fraudulent diversion of N585 million in public funds.
