The Ogun government on Friday began the enrolment of over 80,000 beneficiaries for the federal government’s Renewed Hope Conditional Cash Transfer (RH-CCT) across its 20 local government areas.

The programme manager, Ogun State Cash Transfer Unit, Funmilayo Baker, disclosed this during an assessment and supervision of the exercise in Ipara community, Remo North Local Government Area of the state.

Ms Baker explained that the enrolment exercise was in line with President Bola Tinubu’s commitment to alleviating the current economic reforms in the country.

She expressed optimism that the financial assistance would make a significant impact on the lives of beneficiaries and their households.

Ms Baker disclosed that over 80,000 households would benefit from the exercise in 192 wards and 2,681 communities across the state.

She stressed that each beneficiary would receive N25,000 per circle for three payment circles.

“The state organising coordinating unit did the enumeration of the poor and vulnerable households; they sent the list into the national social register at the federal level.

“Then, from the national social register, names were sent back to the state cash transfer unit for us to capture and verify the names on the national social register.

“Anyone that sees his or her name on the disclosure list will be captured, and the data is sent back to the national for onward payment into their bank account.

“This is to cushion the effect of the ongoing economic reforms as mandated by the president,” she said.

Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Morenike Sofade and Fathia Ogunsola appreciated the federal and state governments for fulfilling their promises to ease the suffering of the poor in society.
