Tinubu, Request For Collaboration On Healthcare In Africa

All of the National Social Investment Program Agency’s (NSIPA) programs have been put on hold by President Bola Tinubu.

A statement from the Office of Secretary to the Government of the Federation’s Director of Information, Segun Imohiosen, contained the suspension.

He said this is further to the ongoing investigation of alleged malfeasance in the management of the agency and its programmes.

The statement reads, “All four (4) Programmes administered by NSIPA, viz; N- Power Programme, Conditional Cash Transfer Programme, Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme and Home Grown School Feeding Programme (the “Programs”) have been suspended for a period of six (6) weeks in the first instance.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has also raised significant concerns regarding operational lapses and improprieties surrounding payments to the Programs’ 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 wants to reassure everyone in Nigeria, including stakeholders, that his administration is still dedicated to a prompt and impartial process that will guarantee that social intervention programs will continue to benefit the most vulnerable Nigerians by functioning as intended in the future
