The Jigawa State government says it spent N192.96 billion to implement its Maternal and Child Cash Transfer (MCCT) programme between November 2021 and June 2022.


Ibrahim Rabakaya, executive secretary, Jigawa State Rehabilitation Board, disclosed this during a three-day validation of Kaduna state’s Graduation Youth-Focused Social Protection programme on Wednesday in Kano. Mr Rabakaya said the intervention targeted 5,740 beneficiaries – pregnant women and lactating mothers, for conditional cash transfer across the 287 political wards in the state.


Since 2015 both Federal and State governments in Nigeria have claimed spending billions of Naira on humanitarian programmes. Some civil society organisations have called on governments to be more transparent in the disbursement of such aids.
