The Bauchi state government says at least 10,800 poor people in 360 communities will benefit from the federal government’s conditional cash transfer programme.

Mansur Soro, special adviser on development partners to Mohammed Abubakar, governor of the state, made this known in an interview with NAN in Bauchi on Wednesday.

Soro said that each of the beneficiaries would receive N5, 000, and the disbursement would commence before the end of January.

He said the state team was on the field for biometric capturing of the beneficiaries, adding that they would access their funds through Guaranty Trust Bank.

“Bauchi was selected due to the existing social register that successfully identified the most vulnerable and poorest in the country through tested Community Based Targeting (CBT),” Soro said.

“The CCT is a federal government programme that will disburse N5,000 to the poor.

“The beneficiaries were selected from Bauchi, Alkaleri, Tafawa Balawe, Dass, Ganjuwa, Gamawa, Giade,Jamare,
Itas/Gadau,Misau and Katagum and Ningi local government areas.”
