President Bola Tinubu has suspended all programs administered by the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA).

In a statement on January 12, the Director of Information, Secretary to the Government of the Federation said the suspension was influenced by the ongoing investigation of alleged malfeasance in the management of the agency & its programmes.

The statement reads, “All four Programmes administered by NSIPA, viz; N- Power Programme, Conditional Cash Transfer Programme, Government Enterprise & Empowerment Programme & Home Grown School Feeding Programme have been suspended for a period of 6 weeks in the first instance.

President Tinubu has also raised significant concerns regarding operational lapses and improprieties surrounding payments to the Programs’ beneficiaries.

He has therefore constituted a ministerial panel to conduct a thorough review of the Agency’s operations with a view to recommending necessary reforms of the NSIPA.
