Good Morning to you all,
It is a moment of great privilege and honour for me to extend the hearty welcome to all of you today at this memorable event of the on boarding and training of independent monitors for the integrated national social investment programs holding here today at IBC Orient Tv Academy Hall in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.
This program today is being organized in all of the 36 States of the federation on different dates and times by the federal ministry of
Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development as part of it’s mandate to ensure the effective monitoring and supervision of the integrated national social investment programs.
In furtherance to this, the program today will onboard and train independent monitors that will monitor the programs at the community level.
The Independent Monitors will be assigned to monitor programme beneficiaries within their locality in schools, households, and market clusters with the focus of ensuring that the primary objectives of these programmes…are achieved.
In view of the above, I wish to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for initiating these programs as well as the Honourable Minister and her team, who are here today, for piloting and working tirelessly for the success and sustenance of the programs, as they are designed th alleviate the suffering of the poor and the vulnerable. It is important to note that the Imo State Government has keyed into these programs and presently we have 11,500 receiving CCT, and an additional 18,238 of beneficiaries have been enrolled. Presently Imo State Health Insurance Agency is generating data of the poor and vulnerable for health insurance scheme.
I will not forget to appreciate our Governor, his Excellency Senator Hope Uzodimma for all of his support and immense contributions to the effective running of these programs in Imo State.
We say thank you to our Governor
