Mukhtar Ruwandorawa, the coordinator of the Nigeria COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (NG-CARES) in Zamfara, has urged community development officers of the programme to ensure transparency and accountability.

The NG-CARES is a $750 million state-driven initiative backed by the World Bank, specifically for the elevation of businesses affected by COVID-19.

Through the NG-CARES, the World Bank, in collaboration with the federal government, aims to deliver targeted relief, restore livelihoods and stimulate the economic recovery of vulnerable households and MSMEs in Nigeria.

Mr Ruwandorawa made the call at the train-the-trainers programme on Re-orientation and Empowerment for Labour Intensive Public Workfare (LIPW) beneficiaries and Desk officers from the 14 local government areas.

The training was organised by the state Community and Social Development Agency (CSDA) as part of the Delivery Platform of Results Area 1.

Mr Ruwandorawa also charged beneficiaries of the project to ensure effective results.

“You are the people at the grassroots, and you must work for effective results because a good result starts from the grassroots to the implementation level,” said Mr Ruwandorawa. “We are giving priority to effective result delivery in all NG-CARES programmes in the state.”
