The Bauchi State Government says no fewer than 10,800 poor people will soon benefit from the Federal Government Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programme in 360 communities in the state.

Mr Mansur Soro, Special Adviser to Gov. Mohammed Abubakar on Development Partners, made this known in an interview in Bauchi on Wednesday.

Soro said that each of the beneficiaries would receive N5, 000, saying that the disbursement would commence before the end of January.

He said the state team was on the field for biometric capturing of the beneficiaries, adding that they would access their funds through Guaranty Trust Bank.

“Bauchi was selected due to the existing social register that successfully identified the most vulnerable and poorest in the country through tested Community Based Targeting (CBT).

“The CCT is a Federal Government programme that will disburse N5,000 to the poor.

“The beneficiaries were selected from Bauchi, Alkaleri, Tafawa Balawe, Dass, Ganjuwa, Gamawa, Giade,Jamare, Itas/Gadau,Misau and Katagum and Ningi local government areas,” he said.
