The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, on Monday, commenced training of Independent Monitors for the National Social Investment Programme in the state.
The Hon Minister in the ministry, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, who flagged off the training urged the monitors to pay attention to training so as to successfully carry out their assignment at the end.
Farouq told the monitors that President Muhammadu Buhari was totally committed to using the social investment programmes in lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next three years, urging them to be committed to making it a reality.
Represented by the Chief Administration Officer of the Ministry, Mr Silas Wuya, Farouq congratulated the trainees on their selection as monitors of the programme in Taraba.
“I want to urge you all to pay attention to the training so as to succeed at the end of the day in doing the job well for the benefit of the people of the state,” she said.
