The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Farouq , has said the Federal government will be using BVN/Bank accounts and mobile phone records to identify poor and vulnerable Nigerians who would receive the Conditional Cash Transfer in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

 

She disclosed this while responding to questions at the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 today Tuesday April 21. She noted that this digital measure will be faster and will make the distribution more effective.

 

“We are using other models including BVN to identify bank accounts. We are also using mobile phone networks to identify poor and vulnerable people in the society. This is going to be faster, transparent and give room for more accountability” she said
