HM Sadiya Umar Farouq And Mrs Maryam Uwais At NSIP Budget Defense

The Minister of Humanitarian affairs, Sadiya Umar Farouq and SSA to the President on SIP are currently at the budget defence of the joint Senate and House Committees on Poverty Alleviation and Social Investment. We hope that something concrete will come out at the end of the defense.

Remember few weeks ago, President Muhammadu Buhari has slashed allocation to a key social intervention scheme of his administration, the Social Investment Programmes (SIPs), by a massive 94 per cent. While the programme was allocated N500 billion in each of the previous three budget cycles, it was allocated only N30 billion in the 2020 budget proposal Mr Buhari presented to the National Assembly few weeks ago
