The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq, has charged independent monitors of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) in Anambra State to carry out their responsibilities with fairness and transparency.
She said the ministry would not hesitate to hand over any person found wanting to the Department of State Services (DSS), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).

The minister, who was represented by the director of planning, research and statistics in the ministry, Ralph Obi, gave the charge on Friday in Awka while flagging off a training programme for the 150 people detailed to monitor the NSIP in the state.
According to her, the monitors were carefully selected from the private sector so as to achieve maximum results.
The trainees were designed to effectively monitor the activities of the NSIP beneficiaries, which include N-Power, homegrown school feeding, conditional cash transfer and the government enterprise and empowerment programme.
