By Saeed Tijjani

Sequel to the approval by the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for the NG-Cares Programme to jumpstart in the State, the Orientation, Validation, Enrolment and Bank Account Opening Exercise for the first batch of 1, 638 vulnerable youths selected across the 16 Local Government Areas have commenced in earnest.

The validation and enrolment exercise, which commenced about two weeks ago has so far been completed in 10 Local Government Councils, under the State Labour Intensive Public Workfare (LIPW) Delivery Platform of the Nigeria Covid-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (NG-CARES), a statement made available to 9japarrot through Olayinka Jimoh Salau, the Project Officer, Information, Education & Communication (IEC), Kwara State LIPW Office, Ilorin confirms this development.

The 10 Local Government Areas in which the exercise had already been completed include Ekiti, Oke-Ero, Irepodun, Isin, Oyun and Offa. Others are Moro, Ifelodun, Patigi and Edu.

The choice of the first set of 10 Local Governments especially Kwara South, was informed by their proximity to the State capital while those within Ilorin vicinity were reserved for the last lap of the exercise, being the host local governments.

The enthusiasm of prospective beneficiaries in the 10 Local Government Areas that have so far been covered was very high during the validation and enrolment exercise. 

The beneficiaries, on their part, were unequivocal in their expression of gratitude to Governor AbdulRazaq for coming to their aid in this harsh economic period through a non-political, transparent and fair process.

Speaking at the end of the first leg of the Orientation Exercise at Lafiagi, headquarters of Edu Local Government last Saturday, the Technical Head, Kwara LIPW Delivery Platform, Alh. Shamsideen Aregbe expressed delight and satisfaction with the turnout of the prospective beneficiaries and general conduct of the exercise in the 10 Local Governments covered so far.

Aregbe specifically commended Governor AbdulRazaq for providing the necessary Logistic support to enhance the smooth conduct of the exercise in the 16 Local Government Councils.

The Technical Head explained that those who for one reason or another could not be captured in the ongoing validation and enrolment exercise would still have the opportunity to enrol during a mop up exercise to be conducted at a later date to be announced by the Delivery Platform.

He, however, assured that everybody whose names already appeared in the State Social Register (SSR) would be captured, pointing out that only those who have either relocated from their present communities, dead, aged above 50 years or educated above Senior Secondary level would be replaced outrightly following a similar selection process from the SSR.

The validation and enrolment exercise for the second leg in the remaining six Local Government Areas of Asa, Baruten, Kaiama, Ilorin East and Ilorin South is expected to resume on Friday July 23, 2021 after the Sallah Celebrations. The grand finale shall take place at the Ilorin West Local Government Secretariat on Friday, July 30, 2021.
