Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu stated that an identification number would be provided on the website developed by the National Social Investment office and the World Bank.
She further explained that the agencies working on the modalities would brief the public on June 28 and she added by saying that the process for the payment will be transparent for civil society and the media to monitor.
This is what she said: “The poorest members of the community will be registered online, and before you make any payment, they must have an ID number so that every payment would be tracked.
