Nigerians React To Federal Govt Claims Of Spending $5bn To Fight Poverty

LAGOS JUNE 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The Federal government says it has spent over $5bn since 2016 to fight poverty in the country.

 Thìe Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, disclosed this during the presentation of letters of engagement and electronic tablets to 248 monitors of the National Social Investment Programme NSIP programme in Adamawa State over the weekend.
