By Ahmed Ubandoma

The National Social Investment Programme Agency (N-SIPA) says it is working assiduously to integrate and harmonise the data of all beneficiaries of its programme.

The agency’s National Coordinator, Halima Shehu, stated this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

Shehu made the clarification when she paid a courtesy call on the Director-General, National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Mr Abisoye Coker-Odusote, in Abuja.

She sought the partnership of NIMC to effectively administer the process of data harmonisation.

This, she said, would help the agency in its quest to commence the nationwide social investment programme latest by January 2024.

Shehu stated that the meeting was aimed at exploring the potential areas of collaboration between the two agencies.

She said the collaboration would ensure accountability in the distribution of funds by leveraging on the rich national database compiled by NIMC.

” We are hopeful that this meeting will streamline and enhance the implementation of NSIPA’s social intervention programmes.

“My mission is to have a strategic collaboration with NIMC in harnessing data-driven methodologies to ensure effective delivery of social intervention across the country.

”I am optimistic that this collaboration will strengthen NSIPA’s commitment to leverage on the resources provided by NIMC to create impactful initiatives that uplift communities and individuals.”

Responding, Coker-Odusote expressed readiness to support N-SIPA in its drive to ensure effective delivery of social investment across the country.

The D-G said NIMC was determined to work with N-SIPA in the area of data utilisation to ensure accuracy and efficiency to meet the desired target, especially in having precise identification.

” This will ensure better coverage of beneficiaries across various socio-economic segments.

”It is worthy to note that the National Social Investment Programme Agency is the face of President Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda and a tool to eradicate poverty in Nigeria.” (NAN)(www.nanews.ng)
