The Senate on Monday said it was scrutinizing the National Social Register being used by the Federal Government for its Conditional Cash Transfer to the poor populations across the country.
The Senate’s Committee Chairman on Special Duties, Senator Yusuf Yusuf disclosed this in Abuja during a chat with reporters. Yusuf said there were obvious lapses in the register and process of disbursements to the beneficiaries.
“Under the SIP, there are the households benefiting from the Conditional Cash Transfers. However, I’m not satisfied and to be honest, it is not an easy thing to do at this material time.
“The SIP has what they call a National Social Register. We’re trying to scrutinise that register to find out really, who are they (beneficiaries)? How did they come about the list?” Yusuf said.
