The governor said the programme was to alleviate poverty level among poor Nigerians. He said:
“This is part of the programmes packaged by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to uplift the standard of living of the poor masses and Ekiti people are benefiting owing to recognition of our strong support for the Federal Government.
“A total of 5,000 indigent populace who had been captured and had been enlisted on a single register will benefit. It is for the poorest of the poor and only those that deserve it will continue to enjoy it.”
