FG Vows to Investigate Former Humanitarian Affairs Minister's Activities

Dr. Betta Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, has announced her office's intention to examine the actions of the former Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq.

During an interview on Wednesday, Edu emphasized that the ministry's approach would emphasize transparency, commencing with a thorough review of the social register.

"We will thoroughly assess the initiatives undertaken during the previous administration, analyzing their accomplishments, challenges, and financial utilization. Our objective is to address these challenges as we work towards enhancing and broadening our nation's social safety net," she stated.

Edu highlighted the significance of historical insight in shaping present and future decisions: "History is a valuable guide, shaping our current and future choices. Delving into the records is of paramount importance."

In regards to the social register, she elaborated, "We will revisit it meticulously, ensuring the accurate identification of intended recipients. Recognizing the efforts of the World Bank and the Office of the National Safety Net, we must critically evaluate our actions, as Nigerians are closely observing. Accountability is non-negotiable," Edu asserted.

She further revealed, "President Bola Tinubu is committed to directing interventions to those genuinely in need. Given concerns raised by some governors, this approach is both necessary and appropriate."

Edu emphasized the necessity of verifying and updating the register, stating, "Individuals not meeting the established criteria will be removed from the register. Those who genuinely meet the criteria for financial assistance will be included. Our aim is to leave no one behind. Collaboration with state and local governments is vital in compiling an accurate social register for our nation."
