The Federal Government will scale up the National Social Investment Programmes, NSIP to reach more Nigerians in this second tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Senior Special Adviser to the President on Social Investment Programmes, Maryam Uwais gave the assurance at a conference organised by the Reformers Arise – a subsidiary of Incubator Africa – a development agency in Lagos.
Uwais said that the administration would build on the successes of the programmes to put smile on the faces of more Nigerians.
The special adviser is the driver of the programmes, a cardinal agenda of the government.
She said that the impact of the programmes was being felt all over, as beneficiaries could be found in communities where the programmes had been implemented.
She added that the Home Grown School Feeding Programme, which provides one-meal per day in primary schools, has provided job opportunities for communities around schools.
