Zamfara Sate Government has denied the reports flying around the Social Media that the State Government is taking a portion of money meant for beneficiary of Conditional Cash Transfer Program.

In a statement signed today by Zamfara Sate Commissioner for Information, Hon. Ibrahim Magaji Dosara; the state government said; It has come to the notice of the state government that some unscrupulous elements bent on tarnishing the hard earned reputation of the person and government of His Excellency Hon Bello Mohammed Matawallen Maradun through the Social Media are spreading false information that the State Government is taking a portion of money meant for each beneficiary of Conditional Cash Transfer Program. This story is totally untrue and should be disregarded.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Conditonal Cash Transfer is an ongoing programme of the World Bank and Federal Government aimed at poverty alleviation and improving the economic well-being of the citizens. It is, therefore, an utter mischief to insinuate that the State Government takes any part of what is meant to cuision the effects of striking poverty on its citizens.

All beneficiaries are supposed to receive a cumulative sum of between Seventy Thousand to Ninety Thousand Naira, depending on the number of months he/she becomes eligible. Payees should not, therefore, succumb to any unauthorized payment to anybody.

It is pertinent to draw the attention of the general public to exercise some patience and subject stories they hear or see through the Social Media to certain level of scrutiny and authentication to ascertain its veracity as the Social Media has now become the cheapest and fastest means of spreading rumors and mischief in the community.

While Government is doing everything to counter the malicious posts in the social media, all those behind such devilish activities are warned to immediately desist from doing so, as the long arm of the law will soon catch up with them.
