Some of us the beneficiaries of the Social Investment Programme NSIP don't really know who and what the function of the focal person really is.
The recent data collection of Npower batch A and B has made the mentioning of the name focal person more often and the recently held interactive session by the Minister of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs with the NSIP Focal Persons, Program Managers, and SOCU Officers, which addresses their activities and challenges faced has made us share insight about Focal persons for you to know
Who are NSIP Focal Persons
NSIP Focal persons are appointed by the State Governors to oversee the Social Investment Programmes of the Federal Government namely: N-power, GEEPMarketMoni, Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT), and the NHGSFP.
So as a Npower volunteer or a beneficiary of any of the NSIP Programme, you are supposed to be familiar with your state focal person because before any issue gets to Federal Government the innovators of the NSIP programme, it will pass through your state focal person and sometimes your state focal person can resolve your issues.
So it is good to know who is your state focal person and also make sure that you have their contact for inquiries.
