Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday, said with the successful activation of the Economic Sustainability Plan, ESP, Cash Transfer scheme, the Government vision of lifting about 20 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next two years was within reach.
He said this while flagging-off, virtually, the cash transfer scheme to be facilitated through a wholly technology-based approach called the Rapid Response Register, RRR.
A statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Laolu Akande, quoted him as saying “the groundbreaking success of the RRR, now emboldens us to achieve our aspiration of a social security programme for a minimum of twenty million Nigerians in the next two years. This will be the largest of its kind on the continent.”
