The President Muhammadu Buhari has included additional one million households to the existing social register, thereby expanding it from 2.6 million households to 3.6 million households.
This is as he pronounced another 14-day lockdown in Lagos, Abuja, and Ogun.
In his speech on Monday, he said, “I have also directed that the current social register be expanded from 2.6 million households to 3.6 million households in the next two weeks.
“This means we will support an additional one million homes with our social investment programs. A technical committee is working on this and will submit a report to me by the end of this week.”
