COVID-19 Palliatives: FG to investigate N20,000 double payments to Nigerians

The Federal Government has disclosed that two members of a family should not be paid N20,000 from the Conditional Cash Transfer Scheme. Stating that it is not for individuals but family.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Farouq, made it clear that it will be almost impossible for double payment to happen.

But she noted that such claims will be looked into by the government.

“Even though it would be almost impossible for such to happen, we shall investigate reports of double payment.”

Farouq said this during a Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 on Tuesday.

The minister added that members of the same family cannot receive money more than once.

“It is impossible for two members of a family to be paid N20,000 each.

“Members of the same family cannot receive money from Conditional Cash Transfer more than once because the process involved is a very tedious one.

“The community leaders and the faith-based organizations, the youths and women leaders in that particular community are the ones that come up with the list of poor and vulnerable ones in that community,” she added.
