“On behalf of His Excellency, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, I want to commend the effort and commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari- led federal government in
touching the lives of the Nigerian masses, especially the poor through the novel N-SIP programmes. It’s in recognition of this that Kwara State has keyed into the programmes,” Salahu stayed.

Salahu, who was flanked by Dr Mohammed Ghali Alaaya, pointed out that Kwara was the first state to have passed social investment programmes scheme into law in the country.

Corroborating Salahu, the N-SIP Focal Person in the state, Dr Rabiat Shehu-Jimoh restated the readiness of the state government to strengthen the existing partnership between it and N-SIP.
