The National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) has impacted 500,000 direct and indirect beneficiaries in Taraba State.

Taraba State Governor Darius Ishaku stated this yesterday in Jalingo, the state capital, during the flag-off of digitized payment for conditional cash transfer, flag-off of payment of a one-off grant to selected Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), and distribution of starter packs to N-Skills beneficiaries.

Represented by Secretary to the State Government Anthony Jellason, Ishaku also said the four components of NSIP have been fully implemented in Taraba State and have impacted positively on the lives of the people.

“More than 30,000 youths have been engaged in the N-Power scheme in Taraba State (Batch A, B, C, and C2) and are in the process of deployment to various places of their primary assignment.

“More than 35,000 farmers, artisans, and market women/traders have benefitted from the Government Enterprise Empowerment Programme (GEEP/BOI) loan in Taraba State since 2016,” Ishaku said.
