Barely eight days before leaving office, President Muhammadu Buhari signed into law the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA) bill.

This development comes after eight years of running N-Power, cash conditional transfer and home-grown school feeding programmes and the Government enterprise and empowerment programme (GEEP).

Bashir Ahmad, an aide to the president disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

In November 2022, the president had written to the National Assembly (NASS) seeking the passage of the executive bill.

NASS transmitted the bill to President Buhari after both chambers subsequently passed the bill.

The Buhari-led administration created the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) in 2015.

According to FG, NSIP was to ensure the equitable distribution of resources to vulnerable populations, including children, youth, and women.

The NSIP initiatives gulped N1.358 trillion in eight years with an impact on 15 million Nigerians.
