However, the committee members have lamented that many of their constituents who are part of the scheme are yet to be paid almost one year after.

BLUEPRINT reports that the Vice Chairman of the committee, Senator Kabiru Barkiya (APC, Katsina Central), said: “In my state, Katsina, some of the beneficiaries were asked to open an account with a bank that has no branches in the state.

” Why we insisted on certain banks was because of auditing process. This is so that we have a clear audit instead of us chasing banks all over the place.

“We said the bank should use their local branches to ensure that those 1,000 people selected in that local government area go to those banks within that locality.

“We have made an adjustment in the last few months. We are not attaching a particular bank to a local government again. So, no matter what it is, we will achieve 98 per cent success on the programme,”.
