The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya  Sadiya Umar Farouq made this known at the opening of a three-day Advance Training on Digitization and Registration for Programme Managers & Master Trainers of the Social Investment Programme.

“ the Ministry has been cognizant of the importance of digital processes for effective delivery results and as such, is proud to announce the digitization of the GEEP 2.0 processes and enhanced registration policies in efforts towards mandate achievement,” she added.

The Director General, National Orientation Agency (NOA), Dr Garba Abari lauded the existing partnership with the Ministry and urged participants to make inputs that will add more value to the programme.
