Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani has warned against selling the form for palliatives and social register database in Kaduna State.
Muhammad Lawal Shehu, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said, “The attention of the Kaduna State Government has been drawn to reports that forms are allegedly being sold in communities across Kaduna State for residents to become beneficiaries of palliatives and other interventions being provided by Government, for the most vulnerable in our society.”
According to him, “The state government condemns the unwholesome act by the criminal elements in our midst and members of the public are hereby informed that there are no forms on sale under any guise for palliatives or Social Register.
“Kaduna State Governor, Senator Uba Sani is committed to ensuring that the palliatives get to the true beneficiaries.
“To achieve this feat, the Governor set up the KDSG Palliatives Committee in July 2023 to come up with modalities for the distribution of these palliatives.
“The committee has since been lauded as highly inclusive, comprising representatives of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Trade Union Congress, other members of Organized Labour, religious and traditional leaders, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Persons with Disabilities, Local Government Chairmen, Youth and Women Groups.”
He said residents of Kaduna State were encouraged to contact their respective Local Government Councils for information on the processes to be captured in the Kaduna State Social Register.
He urged members of the public to be extremely vigilant and to report any suspicious activity or diversion of palliatives to the authorities closest to them, as all offenders when apprehended would be prosecuted according to the law.
