Oyo Govt. Identifies the Poor, Vulnerable in Six Local Councils
The poor and the vulnerable in 60 communities across six local government areas in Oyo State have been identified.
In a statement by the Oyo State Coordinator of Youth Employment and Social Support Operation, YESSO, Mrs Laide Lasisi, the task is being carried out under a project tagged Community Based Targeting, CBT, exercise.
According to Mrs Lasisi, the programme is targeted to cover more than 240 communities in order to identify the poor and the vulnerable in their localities.
She explained that the details collected from each household during the exercise would be sent to the National Social Safety Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO) for cleaning and subsequent addition to the State Social Register of the poor and vulnerable in Oyo state.
Mr Lasisi further explained that the register which serves as the hub of beneficiaries of Social Safety Net Programmes in the country would eventually be established in all verifiable communities in the state.
