School children and some other beneficiaries of the Buhari administration’s National Social Investment Programme (N-SIP) met with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and ministers at a  ceremony to mark the second anniversary of the administration.

Osinbajo told the beneficiaries: We do not consider the Social Investment Programmes a favour to you, you deserve it because you are citizens of our great country, Nigeria”

In a commemorative broadcast earlier today, Osinbajo had described the N-SIP, which began towards the end of 2016, as the largest intervention programme ever embarked upon by any Nigerian government.

“Home Grown School Feeding component is now feeding more than 1 million primary school children across seven states and would be feeding three million by the end of the year. N-Power, another component has engaged 200,000 unemployed graduates – none of whom needed any ‘connections’ to be selected. Beneficiaries are already telling the stories of how these initiatives have given them a fresh start in their lives.
