FG To Create National Register For The Poor
Igberetv reports that the Federal Government is planning to create a national register for its poor citizens.
It is expected that the register would help the fight against poverty, as the exact number of the poor citizens will be determined.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, said a unified register for the poor would be out soon. She said this while speaking during the commemoration of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
While speaking, she said, “We are going to have a register. We know there is one that is in existence but we are going to improve on it. Our first step is to have data because without data, we will not be able to achieve what we have set out to achieve. So, a unified social register is coming up very soon.”
