    Nasarawa Assembly lauds FG, state govts over poverty reduction programmes 

    The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has lauded the Federal and state governments, as well as the World Bank for initiating good policies and programmes.

    The assembly said that such policies would help to further tackle unemployment and poverty in the state.

    Alhaji Mohammed Okpoku, the Chairman, House Committee on NASIEC, Multilateral and Community Development, made the commendation, on Friday in Lafia.

    He spoke when the Nasarawa State Cares Coordinating unit of NG- CARES and other agencies appeared before the committee on their 2022 budget performance assessments.

    Okpoku (APC- ) said that the programmes initiated on poverty reduction were life-touching projects, hence, the need for the committee to appreciate the assignment.

    He expressed happiness with the implementation of NG- CARES and other projects embarked upon by the World Bank, Federal and State Government towards reducing poverty in the state.

    The chairman said that the committee decided to invite the managements of the agencies to assess their 2022 budget performances.

    ” We want to appreciate the World Bank, Federal and the Nasarawa State Governments for ensuring the existence of the life-touching programmes across the state.

    ” These programmes such as cash transfer, public works, water, education, health, nutrition, agriculture and roads, among other infrastructure, have direct bearing on the lives of our people.

    ” These programmes have reduced and will continue to reduce unemployment, restiveness and poverty in the state, thereby improving on the standard of living of our people,” he said.

    Okpoku also said that the projects initiated by them would boost agricutural production, socio- economic activities and the health status of the people of the state.

    The chairman assured the state government of effective collaboration to promote urban and rural development in the state.

    Earlier, Mr Umar Dahiru, Coordinator, Nasarawa State Cares Coordinate Unit, said it was established to coordinate and monitor the activities of Nigeria COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus Programme (NG CARES).

    This, he said, was to improve on the standard of living of the people of the state.

    He listed some of the NG CARES interventions to include cash transfer, public works, markets,  and other infrastructure.

    The Coordinator said that the Nigeria COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus Programme (NG-CARES) was for the poor and vulnerable persons across the 13 local government areas of the state.

    The managements of Nasarawa State Bureau for Rural Development, led by its Director General Alhaji Mustapha Yahuza, reprsented by Mr Timothy Katsa, Chief Civil Engineer of the Agency, also appeared before the committee.

    In the same vein, the Nasarawa State Community and Social Development Agency ( CSDA) led by its General Manager, Mr Saidu Ahmed- Eyshaa was at the event.

    The duo commended the committee and the state government for supporting their policies and programmes.

    The Nasarawa State Independent Electoral Commission ( NASIEC), led by its Chairman, Mr Ayuba Usman-Wandai, thanked the committee for their support before, during and after the 2021 local government election in the state.

    Wandai  also commended Gov.

    Abdullahi Sule for promoting democracy at the grassroots by ensuring the successful conduct of local government election in the state.

    Responding, the Chairman of the Committee commended the management of Nasarawa State Bureau for Rural Development and Nasarawa State Community and Social Development Agency ( CSDA) and NASIEC for diligently developing their agencies.

    The chairman said the committee would contribute leave to the overall development of the agencies.

    Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi has said that  his administration is committed to the development of both the  rural and  the remote communities of the state.

    He said that the development was being driven through the administration’s sustained support to the state’s Community and Social Development Agency (CSDA).

    The governor, represented by Dr Folashade Ayoade-Arike;  the Secretary to the State Government (SSG),  said  that his government would continue to support the agency to deliver on its mandate to the remote and  the rural communities of the state.

    He said that his government from its  inception to date had paid up-to-date its counterpart contributions for the CSDP intervention projects in the state.

    The governor said  that he had mandated the CSDA  to drive the COVID-19 Action Recovery And Economic Stimulus for Result Programme also known as Nigeria-CARES Project in the state.

    The Cross River State Government has commenced the disbursement of N79 million to activate the implementation of 21 micro projects across some communities in the state as part of multi-sectoral intervention to Covid-19.


    The communities are Atakpa, Calabar South; Ebuafen and Ayikang Iye in Bekwarra; Abijang and Agbokim Mgbabor in Etung and Okweriseng, Ashikpe, Betukwel and Bebuawhan in Obudu local government area among others.

    The State Commissioner for International Development Cooperation, Dr Inyang Asibong, while presenting cheques to the benefiting communities in Calabar, urged them to hasten the implementation of the projects.

    Asibong advised them to lay emphasis on standards and specifications with a view to meet global best practices and to further reduce poverty and unemployment in their domain.

    The projects are a counterpart based fund project between the World Bank and the Cross River Government.

    The World Bank assisted Community and Social Development Project (CSDP) is under the state Community and Social Development Agency (CSDA), which the Ministry of International Development Cooperation (MIDC) Coordinates.

    The micro projects include the renovation of classroom blocks with motorized borehole and improved toilets, equipped with ventilations within the communities.

    Also, the provision of 1.5KVA hybrid solar electricity and panoramic solar street lights, the construction and equipping of health post, and the construction of solar powered borehole as well as culverts across the nine communities.

    Asibong told the beneficiaries the efforts of the state government, for paying the required counterpart funds as a requisite to earn the World Bank’s support at the critical time of need for lockdown in Nigeria.

    Also speaking at the event, the Acting Manager of CSDA, Mr Fidel Udie, explained that the micro projects were identified by the communities as necessary interventions to alleviate poverty in the areas.

    He said the project would directly pull the State and Federal Government closer to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and called for the judicious use of the funds to meet the set objectives.

    Some of the community leaders expressed their gratitude to Gov. Ben Ayade for the quick interventions during the lockdown and promised to take full ownership of the projects for overall sustainable development.

    They also said that the projects would reduce poverty and create employment for the people of the state.
