Dockaysworld reported that President Tinubu ordered the suspension of all administered programmes under the NSIPA.

He, therefore, constituted a ministerial panel to conduct a thorough review of the Agency’s operations with a view to recommending necessary reforms of the NSIPA.

Allegations of gross corruption and mismanagement of office have been made against the administrators of the intervention schemes in the past weeks.

Betta Edu, the minister of humanitarian affairs, was suspended by Tinubu on Monday in response to several accusations of corruption against her.

Thousands of people who work in the program’s main target industries—agriculture, health, education, and taxation—are direct beneficiaries of the NSIP, which was introduced by former President Buhari in 2016.

Additional SIP projects include school meals, cash transfer, TraderMoni, MarketMoni, and FarmerMoni.
