Here we will be discussing on how to register to be captured on the National Social Register NSR to benefit from the conditional cash transfer CCT which was launched by President Tinubu yesterday the 17th of October 2023, we have decided to create this post to give you update on how beneficiaries were registered.
National Social Register NSR
The National Social Register is an aggregation of state registers built by each of the 36 states and FCT. States build the register using a Community-Based Targeting approach undertaken by targeting teams & enumerators engaged by states & overseen by their ministries of planning with technical facilitations from the National Social Safety-Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO).
The National Social Safety-Nets Coordinating Office NASSCO is an office under the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation FMHAPA responsible for building the National Social Register of Poor & Vulnerable Households. Also coordinates Social Protection programmes in Nigeria.
How to be captured for National Social Register Cash Transfer 2023/2024
According to NASSCO, there are over 60 million Nigerians on the National Social Register (NSR) and they are real people identified by community members in their communities & LGAs of domicile. The register is first, a state asset built by states through their ministries of planning.
The current National social register was built by the last Administration, a situation that led to the ongoing verification of the register by the new Administration to ensure that persons captured in the register are real people.
According to the current Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty alleviation Dr Betta Edu, they are planning to expand the National Social Register to include more people like the elderly people and wives of falling heroes.
Currently, there is no registration for the National Social Register going on. However, if you want to confirm more about how you can enroll, kindly visit your state Ministry of Planning or contact (NASSCO) via the contact Phone number: +23494992011.
