The Rural Women Programme is aimed at reducing strict poverty among women in line with President Buhari plans to reduce poverty and unemployment in the country  

“Sadiya said the programme is consistent with the President’s national vision of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years. It is designed to provide a one-off grant to some of the poorest and most vulnerable women in rural and peri-urban areas of the country”

“It is in view of this, that President Muhammadu Buhari graciously approved the expansion of the programme to touch more lives and lift more Nigerians above the poverty breadline,”

“We are working tirelessly to address some of the socio-economic problems that are bedevilling all parts of the country by strengthening the humanitarian-development-peace nexus.

“A cash grant of N20,000.00 will be disbursed to about 125,000 poor women across the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.

“Our target in Lagos State is to disburse the grant to over 8,000 beneficiaries across all Local Government Councils. The grant is expected to increase income and productive assets of target beneficiaries.
